I got Cupcake Wrappers when they first came out, because I thought they would be good for my baking business (which they are!).
But then I said I was done. I get all of my cartridges online and I NEVER pay more than $25, so I SWORE I would never pay $39 for a Lite cartridge.
Then I saw Celebrate with Flourish.
It's truly a cart you can use all year round, and I LOVE the flourish designs.
So I caved yesterday when I saw my local Wal Mart had one copy left.
It all worked out though, because I needed to make a fall project for this weeks SweetSassyDiva Design Team, and I found a perfect image for my card.
- Cricut Lite "Celebrate with Flourish" cartridge
- DCWV Amber Autumn Stack
- Recollections Spice Market Pack
- KI Memories "Fall Icons" Stamp Set
- Peeled Paint Distress Ink
- Vintage Photo Distress Ink
- Brown Braiding Cord
This is a 5 1/2 by 5 1/2 inch card. I cut the green and patterned mats in 1/4 inch increments and inked around the edges. I cut the Pilgrim hat (with shadow) at 4" and inked all the cuts with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Before I applied the hat, I used braiding cord around the card, secured in the back with a glue dot. I heat embossed the "Thankful" sentiment using black ink and clear embossing powder.
Do you remember that stamp set? I got it for $3 at Tuesday Morning. Totally a worthwhile buy!
I adhered the hat to the card with Pop Dots, and voila! A simple and elegant Thanksgiving card.
