Friendship card using the new Country Life Cricut cartridge

Hello, friends!!

I hope you liked the new releases! There are some pretty good ones this time for sure! Provo Craft have really up'ed their game as far as cartridges go!

Today I have card that I made using the NEW Country Life Cricut cartridge. This cartridge has some great images on it. Not only that I have seen tons of paper recently that have farm images, so it is very trendy right now too.



I cut the image out at 3". The paper used is Doodlebug.



this stamp is from Papertrey Ink.



I added a little white stitching with my white Signo Uniball pen.



Make sure you check out my current giveaways! I am giving away 3 new Martha Stewart cartridges. Click here for that post ==> Martha Giveaway

Melanie.... It's a great card! I was surprised to see Doodlebug paper instead of the Bo Bunny Dots.... I love that paper... :) You've got me addicted to it! LOL Now I like this paper too...oh boy... My hubby is gonna kill me if I say I need more paper! LOL Have a great day! :)

This is so nice. Great card for a quilter or seamstress. Love the colors. I will have to check out the papertrayink stamps. Love all the ones you ladies use.

Ann said...

Like your choice of paper ~ but then paper is over 50% of it, right? I too like the white pen and had to get one recently. Adds so much!

Cute card, Melanie! The colors are so fun and Summery (is that a word, LOL?), and the stitching was the perfect finishing touch. But, my favorite part of it is the saying on that stamp...it's so true! Thanks for sharing.

Wow!! They just keep'em coming don't they. I was wondering when I was going to hear someone talk about these new releases. I just figured everyone else was at CHA. I think these new releases are all so fabulous. Winter Frolic is my least fav. so far, but I am sure you will convince me in no time that I am wrong and will have to have this one also. But, I am excited about your Hello Thursday giveaway. I never picked up Destinations or Independance Day yet. Maybe I'll get lucky.
