Mother's Day Step Card by Judy Stark

  Every Mother's Day my daughter Tara always gives me a special plaque or book about Mothers. I have saved all of them through the years and love to get out the box and read over again.  This year I decided to use one of the pages and recycle to her.
 I used a basic step card pattern which you can find on the internet and added the MOM to the front. It's very easy to do this in your Funtime program!  I used the text feature, break by character to separate the letters individually, click convert text to path and then used the cut path feature (Scissors) on the bottom of the letters.  Then you just move the word and lay on top of the kiss cut line and they will pop up on your card.

  I used 85 wgt cardstock using 1 pass, 12 K/O, force 2 and speed 3.  I then cut my background frames, sizing those in Funtime.  I glued the background frames after chalking the outside.  I then chalk the quote and attached it to the front of my card.

 I used the newly released Ruffles Butterfly design. All of our designs are created for computerized digital cutters. The digital downloads contain all of the following formats: AI, WPC, GSD, Vector PDF and a jpg for reference.
 The flower is also a newly released design "Parker PK Flower."   Remember, all of the Popcuts are one cut designs!  If you haven't cut any of these before, try them.  To finish my card, I added a sticker (Mom & Me) some faux stick on pearls and ribbon.  Enjoy!

Butterfly Doily Card by Judy S

Time to make some extra cards to keep on hand.  I like to make a few for last minute "I need a card" celebrations or events. Using doily designs are very popular now with card makers and so convenient to put a card together quickly. Make a few, put away until needed and stamp, write or use the fabulous pen feature on your Bosskut Gazelle to write the sentiment inside.
For this card, I used the Butterfly Doily and Popcut Ruffles Butterfly 
I cut the doily, butterflies, mat and card. I used the heavy weight Bazzil cardstock for everything except the doily. 
After gluing the diecuts to my card , I then added a few rhinestones, pearls and added a ribbon. Done!!
