Creative Cuts and More April Blog Hop!

I was honored to be asked to join in on the fun for the April Blog Hop. If you started here first, be sure to start at the Die Cut Diva blog, so you don't miss anyone! If you have already been hopping along then the next stop on the hop is Lisa.

Here are all the supplies and instructions for the pink card above:
A2 Gate Fold Crescent Card with Band - Color for Card Strawberry Splash - Bazzill Smoothies & Color for Band Raspberry Splash - Bazzill Smoothies
Patterned Paper - Collage Press (2 sided)
Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Fabric Alphabet - American Crafts
Cream Button - Jenni Bowlin
Pearls - Kaisercraft
Oval Template - Coluzzle

I used an oval template to cut the pink patterned paper for the front of the card and adhered. I then cut a rectangular piece of cream patterned paper for the inside of the card (the other side of the patterned pink paper) and used a border punch on both ends. I adhered the paper to the inside of the card, added a few pearls to flower centers on the paper and added the alphabet stickers. To the band that goes around the card - I added more letters, a button and placed a pearl in the center of the button.
A2 Circle Window Card #01 Color Choice Pear Crush - Bazzill Smoothies
Paper: Collage Press (two sided)
Felt Flower: K and Company
ABC Stickers: K and Company
White Pearls: The Paper Studio
Teal Pearl: K and Company
Circle Template: Coluzzle

Cut two rectangles from patterned paper (one for inside of card, one for outside). Cut circle from blue patterned paper, slightly larger than hole in the window card. I used a Coluzzle, but you could use other templates or even a cup or bowl. Adhere rectangle (with hole) to the front of card, add pearls around the circle and alphabet stickers. Adhere rectangle of brown patterned paper to the inside of the card and add flower sticker so that it is in the center of the window. Add pearl to center of flower.

Oh, pretty cards! I loved the heart punch in the gatefold card! I'm working on gatefold card right now and going to lift that it! Love the pearls around the circle on the second card.
