Crafts With Cutters Challenge #125: Card Outreach

Good morning and happy Wednesday!  This week at for our weekly "Crafts With Cutters" challenge the Design Team is creating cards for 4 year old Claire.  Claire was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma (bone cancer) in January of this year and she is this month's recipient at the "I Feel the Love" Project (IFTL).  To learn more about Claire and IFTL, please visit my teammate, Madison's blog.

Here is the card I created for Miss Claire:

The inside of my card says: "I'm cheering for you, Claire!"

And here's the recipe:

  • The card base is a purple cheetah print card stock by Recollections.  The mat is an embossed pastel purple from my scrap stash.
  • The card base and mat were cut using the Cricut "Just Because" Cards cartridge.  The card measures 5 1/2" wide by 8 1/2" high and then was folded in half.  The mat measures 4 3/4" wide by 4 1/4" high.
  • I used the Cricut Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge for my little cheerleader.  She is cut at 4" tall.  I used all scraps from my stash; including the holographic paper for her pom-poms.
  • Some self-adhesive gems complete this cute little card.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Now head on over to and see what the rest of the Design Team created for Claire!

This will be a big hit I'm sure as my granddaughters love Hello Kitty. Love the purple cheetah print. So pretty together.
