You color my world card made using the new Handyman Cricut Lite cartridge.

Hello, friends!!

I hope you enjoyed the Hello Thursday projects. I will be drawing a winner on Thursday, so make sure you check back in for that!

Ok, this card is made with a very fun cartridge that I have wanted Provo Craft to make for so long! I have wanted a guys cartridge and this cartridge definitely brings it! This must have cartridge is the *NEW* Handyman Cricut Lite cartridge . LOVE IT!



I cut the paintbrush at 4". The stamp is from Close To My Heart.



To get the multi-colored look with the stamp I colored the stamp using SU! markers. It is so easy to do and gives a nice water color effect. Love those markers!



Thank you so much for stopping by today!!

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Chris said...

Love the card. My boys used the cartridge to make their Grandpa bookmarks for Father's Day. One made the tool box and the other the paint can. They had fun picking out the colors and projects. I ended up making them as I had to cut them out at 2 inches to fit on the bookmark so a little small for them to work with. I am so glad they made this cart. too.
