Hello card made with the *new* Cindy Loo Cricut cartridge

Hello, friends!

I hope you are all enjoying the new releases as much as we are! I had so much fun making all of these projects for you guys!!! I hope you like what you see so far. I have several more days of fun projects and awesome prizes, so stay tuned!!

Today's cartridge giveaway is the Summer mini bundle! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and make sure you are signed up to get email or follow this blog. I will draw for this and all of the other prizes on Wednesday.

On to the card....


This card is made with the FUN & FABULOUS Cindy Loo cartridge. I cut the scalloped flower at 3" and then at 2 3/4". Then crumpled the paper. Crumpling give the flower depth and makes it much more 3D and realistic. Well, as realistic as a flower made with Cosmo Cricket paper can be ;-)

The leaves are also from this delish cartridge and are cut at 2 1/2".



The paper I used is the new Cosmo Cricket Delovely paper. The stamp and ribbon is from Papertrey Ink.



-Now don't forget about yesterday's giveaway of the Elegant Cakes cartridge. Click ==>here<== to leave a comment to win

-Also, you won't want to miss out on entering to win one of the many prizes I have listed ==>here<== prizes include 2 you pick one cartridges(which can be any of the new releases except for Toy Story), Basic Grey paper, Cricut Cake Chef's hat, and a Heidi Swapp bundle.
