The first project is a card I designed where the card and the fish were all cut out in one piece, I painted the fish and then there is a separate watercolor background. Little Man quickly snapped this card up and it's currently sitting in his room.
The second project I wanted to share was made for my Little Brother's wedding (more on that next post). I knew I wanted to gift the new couple (who have blended two households) a monetary gift, but I wanted to do something a little more involved. So I decided to make an explosion box card, which I was first introduced to by Obi-Knit-Kenobi. Her project had multiple layers, but I decided to go a little simpler. The foundation was cut from one 12 X 12 piece of cardstock. VERY EASY! The monograms I cut out with the Make the Cut software, the envelope and love birds were cut out using cartridges that I already had. The envelope housed a check from me, and on the other side I printed an excerpt from First Corinthians.
Yes, my Cricut and I have been having a lot of creative fun together! I finished it off with ribbon and a tag with love birds cut out.
