World's Best Dad - Monocle Steampunk Card

Thank you for joining me!
Father's Day is soon approaching, and I was inspired to make a Steampunk style card with a wonderful gear background image from Cricut's Design Space. This card was fun to make, and I hope that you also enjoy it!


This card features an elegant image of a man in a tall hat, wearing a bow tie, and monocle. 
The colors are masculine, with a black background full of gears. This adds to the Steampunk style of the card. 


The white background is also embossed with several mustache images. His monocle is made of vinyl, a long-lasting sturdy material. 

To finish the 6' square card, The title reads World's Best Dad, on movie tickets across the front.
You may gift this to dad with a set of movie tickets to complete the theme!
This card is made with high quality card stock, and the inside is blank to add your personal message. It also includes customized black matching envelope.

Be inspired, Be blessed!- Raquel

Flowers with Cricut Design Space, and Cricut Explore Air 2.

Thank you for joining me!
Today I am posting a short tutorial that comes in handy. I cover how to GROUP, ATTACH, ARRANGE and HIDE layers and shapes to maximize the use of your paper!. Using my Cricut Explore Air 2, Design Space and a FREE File: Creative Bug Flowers, I made custom flowers that coordinate perfectly with the papers in my cards.

I hope this is useful to you, and that it answers some questions you may have! Please let me know what other types of tutorials may be helpful to you. I am happy to oblige!


Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.
