I love you Rain or Shine...card made using the NEW Simply Charmed Cricut cartridge

hello, friends!!

I hope you all have great weekends! Mine went pretty good despite my fun plans being canceled last minute. I hate when stuff like that happens!

Today I have a card that I made using the NEW Simply Charmed cartridge. This cartridge is one of my favorites of the new releases. It seems like an updated Doodlecharms to me. I think it is very diverse and has a ton if really good cuts on it.



I cut the cloud and sun at 2 1/4" I did not use the face layer because at this size it does not really work out. That is going to be the advice I give for this cartridge. If you want to use the face layer the cut will need to be larger.



I used My Mind's Eye paper.



The Sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.



The size of the card is 5" x 5".

Melanie,

Do you pick the stamp or the Cricut cuts to make first?! I am amazed at how well you're able to coordinate the two!!! :)
