Thank you card using the Sentimental cricut cartridge

Hello, everyone!

I hope you are all having a great week so far. I know that having a puppy is a lot of work! We really love her lots though. I always forget that part. You just look at their sweet little face and that 's it.

Anyway, this card was one of my prototypes for the CHA demo I did. I ended up not using this design, but I was trying to illustrate that you can use your cricut to make patterned paper. Basically, I cut the 'damask' shape(from Sentimental cartridge) about 20 times . Then adhered them all over the paper. It is VERY easy to do and it adds a 3D effect to your plain paper. The sentiment is also from Sentimental.


Hope you are having a fantastic week!

Melanie, I love this card. This appears to be a quick and easy way to create patterned paper when you need it quick, fast, and in a hurry and going to the store is not convenient for the moment.

Beautiful. I like to do the same thing with the parts cut out of the argyle on the Wild card cart. Those triangle make real cute pop up flowers.
