Autism Thank You Card

A custom order for a special and incredibly smart young boy, Keygan. His Mother Roz asked me to make a 'Autism Thank You Card' for them. They are given it to someone who has been very helpful with them this year.

I first found a cut file of a puzzle, then figured out how to cut the outline of the puzzle pieces from the base of the card base. I used all the common colors for Autism, turquoise, red, blue and yellow and cut the puzzle pieces from those colors. The verse is from the Silhouette online store 'thank you' informal word set.

This is what the inside of the card looks like.

I hope you love it Keygan!!

Butterfly Birthday

Butterfly centerpieces for a 90th birthday! Can you make it anymore cheerful than using the colors of the rainbow.

I used seven colors and cut out a smaller butterfly with the same monochromatic color for the top layer. Each smaller butterfly was run through the Cuttlebug and embossed with a different design. I used eleven different embossing folders to be exact.

I cut out a black happy birthday script from the silhouette site (Design #35716) and glued one on either side.
