Westward Ho – Step/Easel Card Combo

Friends of mine are preparing to pack up and move their family from Kentucky to Oregon so I wanted to make a card for their going away party.  I’ve been noticing a variety of stand-up or dimensional cards recently, both on Pinterest and some of the blogs I follow, and have been wanting to try one myself – this is what I came up with.

I used Cricut Design Space to layout my images and text and Cricut Explore to do the cuts as well as the written text; cartridges used: Old West (Wagon), Outdoor Man (Pine trees), and Country Life (text).  All cardstock was from Close To My Heart and the patterned background paper was from my personal stash.

Here are a couple of additional views:

Happy Mother’s Day!

It’s often hard to find the perfect gift for the special mom(s) in your life but you can’t go wrong showing your love and appreciation with a handcrafted card.  I made this one for my sister-in-law this year.

The inside greeting was cut using Cricut Design Space then assembled and adhered to the inside of the card base.   All materials are Close To My Heart and are, except for the retired Skylark Complement embellishments I used on the card front, currently available.
