Cut At Home Designer – Cheryl Harwick
Hi! I’m Cheryl Harwick from Toledo, Ohio, and I’m so excited to be featured on the Paper Crafter’s Library Blog. As long as I can remember, I’ve loved crafts of all kinds. At an early age I learned to sew, to knit and crochet, to embroider, etc. I’ve always had a project (or two or three) that I’m working on. I also enjoy sharing my love of crafting with others, and for a number of years have taught classes. Currently I teach at Michaels (paper crafting and knitting) and at Bayer’s Pampered Stampers, my local paper crafting shop. For the past year and a half, I’ve had so much fun as a member of the Cut @ Home design team. I’ve been blessed to meet so many wonderful people through all of this.
Happy Birthday Card
My project today is a winter birthday card. I just love all of the dies that are available – how fun is it to create something beautiful and dimensional from a flat piece of paper and a small piece of metal? For this project I selected some of my favorite dies – “Snowflake Trio” by Penny Black to make a snowflake wreath, “Mini Petals” by Susan’s Garden (Sizzix) to make the flowers, “Winter Florals” by Tattered Lace to add some greens, and “Handwritten” by Little B to add the sentiment. I love how they all came together.
My video includes instructions for completing a similar card.
