Pagoda pizzaz!

Hello, everyone!

I hope you are all having a wonderful week! If you have not had a chance to check out our new blog layout over at Everyday Cricut(formerly Holidays with the Cricut). We are giving away ton and tons of prizes this week over there as well, so make sure you drop by to take a peek.


on to the card....I made this with my very neglected Pagoda cartridge. I love Asian inspired designs, but have not had a chance to really explore what this cartridge has to offer...until now.
I cut the flowers at various sizes and put a glittered brad in the middle to add a little sparkle.



The paper is from the SEI Jocelyn line which is soooo beautiful!! The stamp is from Verve.



Have a wonderful day!!!

Oh I love it!! I just love the pagoda cart, it has so many different elements onthere. From a playfull panda to the elegant birds (no idea what they are called). And the flowers and branches and stuff onthere are amazing too!

I love this card Melanie! I have to check out this cartridge. Is the flower layered on white? It looks so pretty. I thought it was a stamp and cut out at first.

This is a very pretty card. It will make me reconsider my decision about purchasing the cartridge. Thanks for sharing.

Great card from an Asian style cart and the card doesn't look Asian. That shows it's versatility.
