Thanks card made using Bloom and Cupcake wrappers cricut lite cartridges

Hello, friends!! I hope your weekends were lots and lots of fun! Mine was as boring as I had predicted, but as someone had said on Friday sometimes boring is good. I think she was totally right!

Anyway, today's card is made using two of the new Cricut Lite cartridges...Bloom and Cupcake Wrappers. When I originally designed this card I had designed it using Bloom and Feeling Groovy, but in the midst of making it I came across the great 'thanks' cut on cupcake wrappers that I think worked better. This ended up being one of my favorite cards that I have made using the new Lite cartridges thus far.



The flower spray is from Bloom and is cut at 3". I used Papertrey Ink patterned paper and ribbon.



'thanks' was cut using the topper feature from Cupcake Wrappers at 2 1/2".



Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

Have a great week!

Jennifer said...

Wow, Melanie!!! :) If I didn't know better, I would think that the Cupcake Wrappers (& some of the Cake Cartridges) Cartridge was made for paper (well, adhering to paper; not just to decorate cupcakes with)! How great is that negative of Thanks?! Really cool!

TFS,

Jennifer

You have such an eye for colors that go together. No wonder you are an art/design major. Loved the card--the papertrey graph paper went so well--like you I love the Double Dots paper but really liked this paper too. Glad you got a little rest.

Oh I think this is one of my favorite cards so far also. Really cute. When I first saw Cupcake wrappers cart, I knew that it could probably be used for more then just wrappers. I think you just convinced me to put it back on my must have list. Thanks, I think?!?

CuttlebugCourt said...

I think you're brave - I always worry about using paper with stripes/checks because I will want the lines to match up! But while two of your layers do, the rest don't and it actually looks great so maybe I'll give it a try! :) Thanks!
