Orange ya glad we're friends using the New Straight from the Nest Cricut Cartridge.

Hello, everyone! I hope you are all having a great week so far.

Today I have a card I made with the new Straight From the Nest cartridge. I have to admit this cartridge is my least favorite of the new release. Now don't get me wrong, I still love it. However after my initial look at what this cartridge could do, I was not as blown over as I was about Give a Hoot or Just Because cards. Although, when I started looking at it closely I started to find images that I really liked jumping off the page at me. This little orange tree is one of them. Now I am not sure it it is supposed to be an orange tree, but when I first noticed that is all I could see. Now I see many cuts that are just my style that I am so glad this cartridge included. Cricut always does this.....just when you think you would not want a cartridge, you notice all of these cuts and you realize you totally need that cartridge.



The tree is cut at 3 1/2" and the grass is cut at 2 1/2". The paper down to the cardstock is Papertrey Ink. The sentiment is Verve.

Have a great rest of your Wednesday!

Super cute! If it's not intended to be an orange tree, you sure did turn it into one! Would be great on some of my Florida LO's!
