Two Simple Cards Using Paper Fundamentals

This week, my husband graduated college and had a birthday! Since these were both perfect card giving opportunities, I got crafty! I wanted to make adorable cards on the quick, so I decided to use the Paper Fundamentals for both cards. I really love Paper Fundamentals, because they can easily accent any paper pack, work together for a fun design, or stand alone.

For the first card, I used an old Paper Fundamentals sheet in Smokey Plumb (retired). I used a Spellbinders die to cut and emboss the circle, which I stamped with stars and a sentiment. The owl is cut from Cricut Create a Critter 2. I chose this color scheme, because they are the colors of Grand Canyon University, where my husband graduated. I am entering this card in Heart 2 Heart's "Four" Challenge, since college takes four years.

For his birthday card, I used Adventure Paper Fundamentals Honey Cardstock. Yellow is my husband's favorite color. I again used a Spellbinders die to cut and emboss a circle. The stamps and sentiment here are a die and stamp set from Lawn Fawn

Happy Scrapping, My Artsy Friends!
