Laugh--card made using Wall Decor and More Cricut cartridge

Oh, dear! This was not supposed to go live yet! That is why it did not have any text. I am SO sorry! Since it is already up I will do the right thing and give you a write up. I am so embarrassed that I did not even know that it was up until Joy emailed me how much she liked the card. She was nice enough not to even mention the lack of verbiage. She is such a good friend!


This A2 sized card was made using the Bo Bunny double dot paper(which totally rocks!). I used my Signo Uniball white pen for stitching.


I cut 'laugh' at 2". I just love the word art on this cartridge. It makes card making so easy!!


Ok, here is the deal....I have been slaving away making projects for the next Hello Thursday(which is going to blow your mind), so I have not had much time to make the regular everyday stuff. I am hoping to make some stuff for this blog tomorrow after class and my carpets get cleaned(have I mentioned that I am having a crazy summer?...and it has just started! ;-)) Also, I am shipping all of the prizes out tomorrow, so if you are a winner keep an eye on your mailbox!

I hope you are all having a great holiday!!

Melanie, I love this one! I love the pink and orange together. I'm also a fan of the doodle stitching - what pen did you use to do it? It seems that I always have to do two coats with my white pen.

Karen said...

Love the bright, bold colours and the stiching on the word art. I've bought a white pen so I can try that soon!

Jennifer said...

Melanie,

Isn't it crazy? You think summer's coming & things will slow down and you just get busy with other things!

I love your card, but it's dangerous coming to your sites. ;) Another great cartridge to add to my ever-growing wish list (it was finally shrinking and then the new ones were releases)!

-Jennifer

KarenLinPA said...

That Bo Bunny Paper is perfect - I need some! I also can see that I need to trade in my cheap-o, not reliable white gel pen for a Signo Uniball. It makes great stitch lines, which I also LOVE.
