Twisted Easel Card

I made this card for my daughter-in-laws birthday. I got the direction on youtube and then after I got them Mary from Cardz TV showed a video on how to do it. Check out Marys blog and try one. Real easy to do. I just love this card.

My pattern paper is from DCWV Nana's Paper stack. Hat was cut from Kate's ABC at
2.25". Stamp is from Stampin Up.

Onzie Baby Card

Hello Everyone,

I came across the directions for this adorable onzie baby card on one of the blogs, but for the life of me I'm sure which one so I could give credit.

It's an A2 size card. You use a 1 3/4" punch to cut the neck and the legs and the same size scallop punch for the trimming. I just stamped Sweet Baby in the middle and added a tiny flower next to it.

Hope you like it. Thanks for visiting, Anne
