Bonus Tutorial from Cut@Home Design Team Member Cheryl Harwick and a Give Away!

This week we have a bonus tutorial for you, brought to you by one of Cut At Home‘s designers Cheryl Harwick. Before we show you Cheryl’s project, let’s get to know her a little bit more…

Cut At Home Designer – Cheryl Harwick

CherylHProfilePic-01022015-250WHi!  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.

Brushed silver and light blue metallic cardstock; white metallic vellum

  2. Really like the idea of using snowflakes for the wreath. (I will have to try that). I used white on white this year for my Christmas cards and this would make a beautiful one for next year. Pop of green is just lovely.

  3. Love the tone on tone with just a splash of color around the roses. I believe in less is more. The simplicity of the design is what makes it come together so beautiful. Gorgeous! With talented designers, like yourself, willing to share their talent, helps me look look better than I normally would, if I was left to do on my own. Thank you again for the shared idea. And, hopefully I will be able to use your ideas here to make something just as beautiful. Well, for me half is good. I’d be thrilled with even a quarter. Thank you for the share

  56. Thanks for the beautiful inspiration. The video included lots of details for completing the card at home.

  57. I’ve been privileged to take classes from Cheryl personally at our local stamp shop. She always gives practice elements so you get to practice before doing the “real” thing. Also, she will always say there is “no mistake”, we can embellish anything!!

    The winter wreath birthday card is so appropriate for this time of year and can be for either gender. I liked using so many elements on the wreath. Other elements could also be incorporated for different seasons, such as spring or summer flowers with their related greens, autumn leaves and grapevine wreaths and always the use of small birds. However, this winter birthday card was a really great idea. Kudos!!!

  58. Wow what a great set of dies and stamps! Thanks for the inspiration – it’s a beautiful card!!
