Today I have a card I made using 3 Cricut cartridges that I have had for a long while and had not used til now: Country Life, County Fair, and Easter 2010. I actually have a ton of cartridges that I have yet to even open. If only I could camp out in my Craft room for a week or more I might be able to crack a dent into the hidden treasures of that room! This card I made for my amazing Aunt's birthday. She loves the country and the critters especially piggies.
I made another Card in a Box which I have been getting a lot of compliments on. These cards pop open and leave such a smile on the faces of the recipients. They fold flat and can be placed in an envelope. I just love them!
I created the farm scene using the barn from the County Fair. I inked and embossed the front layer of the barn to add a cool dimension. I also got the fence and chicken from this cartridge. I cut the chicken layers out a bit bigger than the fence so it would cut out right. The design papers are from the 12x12 DCWV Kitchen Stack that I picked up at Joann's for $6! (Always lookin' for a bargain :)
The pig and chicken, and grass hills are cut from the Country Life cartridge. I think I bought this cartridge just for this pig cut! And the sewing machine, which I have plans to make for a future card. The clouds are from Zooballoo and the bunny from Easter 2010. Omgosh that cartridge is full of bunny goodness that I have yet to explore! The bee and white bird are from Jolees. They are so tiny and cute and I cut my Cricut case into strips to attach them. They are so cute and sway when you move the box. I used my computer to type the sentiments since I didn't have any stamps to fit the occasion. I inked and blinged and added a cottontail to the bunny as well as a red ribbon to the front.
I hope you enjoyed my card. As you know the details don't quite make it into the photos but I tried to get some good angles. I will participate in the following challenges:
Thank you so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a wonderful and crafty day!
