Card Project--Crystal

I used my Cricut to do my first card project. I made a Thank You card. It was actually pretty easy to make. I used my Cricut Cartiridge Don Jaun to cut out the word Thanks at 2" in pink and the shadow of Thanks at 2" in green. I then cut the ribbon at 3" in yellow. I cut the blue paper at 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 and rounded the corners. I cut the yellow paper at 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 and rounded the corners. I cut 3 green strips 6 1/2 x 1 1/2 and one green strip 3 1/2 x 1/4. I then stamped black butterflies onto the blue square and black flowers onto the yellow square. On the small green strips use a black marker to make dash marks along the whole strip.

I layered the piece: Yellow square, longer green strip on the bottom of the yellow square, blue square, the shorter green strips on the top left corner of the blue square, green thanks on the bottom of the blue, pink thanks on top of the green, and the yellow ribbon on top.

I then stamped two black butterflies onto pink paper and cut them out. I cupped them to have the wings stand out. I glued two of the wings together of the butterflies and placed them on the ends of the green strips. I attached each of them with a pink brad. I then glued down some star confetti at the bottom of the the card, underneath the thanks.

As I was looking at it just now, I realized I forgot to chalk the edge of the blue and yellow squares with the black ink. I would suggest it for next time.

Another blog

Check out this blog's giveaway. The blog is called Craftaholics Anonymous. It's a pretty cool blog with some fun stuff and tutorials. She also sales some of her stuff on her etsy shop. I really love the zipper items she makes. It's pretty cool. My favorite is the black zipper bracelt and zipper ruffle headband.

Easter Gift--Crystal

Can you guess what I got for Easter this year? I finally got a Cricut. YEAH!! I've been wanting one forever. Adam and Kenna got me one for Easter. I have already used it. I made an Easter card for one of Kenna's grandparents. Next I'll be making some cards for other grandparents too. I'm so excited. I can't wait to use it all the time. I'll have to take some pictures of my projects for my blog.
