Snowflake easel drawers & boxes

Hi everyone
I have made several easel drawers for my aunt to give to family members ,i must say it has not been too easy as i have wasted so much cardstock trying to cut those snowflake frames out with my cameo machine ,it seemed to chew up the card ,but eventually i managed .

The snowflake papers were a freebie but not sure where from ,the tree image is a stamp from wild rose studio ,the angel image is from cardmaking downloads ,the bauble is an image from digital designer papermania christmas past cd-rom from an embellishment section ,the poinsettias & snowflake flourish are a studio file for my cameo ,bows,ribbon & gems are from own stash ,jingle bells from ebay .

My aunt was really pleased with them ,hope you like them too .
I do apologise for the blurry photo's as i used my phone to take them .

Mum & Dad's Anniversary Card

This is the first card i have made in a few weeks ,i have been busy trying to get to grips with my new silhouette cameo which i made this card with ,i seen this beautiful heart ornate frame in the online shop plus the gorgeous dancers and as my mum & dad are dancers i thought this would be great for their anniversary card .
It took me several sheets of card & a few tweaks of the blade to get this cut correctly but i managed eventually .
The verse & sentiment is done in digital designer software & i just added a butterfly & heart flat pearl on the inside & heart flat pearls on the hearts in the corners of the front of the card .

I love it and i hope you do to .

40th Birthday Card for my sister-in-law

This is a card i have made for my sister-in-law Angela who is 40 today .
I saw this image in google images ,i took it into digital designer software ,matched up the colour to make my outer layer & to match up the colour of the text on the front & the inside .
I used my cricut machine to do the 40 & added stickles to finish & i just love it !,i think this image could probably do for lots of different occasions ,hopefully i wll manage to try and work out how to change it into different colours in another software maybe ,any advice on doing this would be appreciated .
hope you are all well & having a lovely day !
