Thanks! card made using Cricut Lite Billionaire cartridge

Hello, friends!!

Can you believe it is Thursday already? My how this week has flown by! Holiday weekends tend to do that though, don't they?

Well, today's card is made using the font from the Billionaire Cricut Lite cartridge. This font is lots of fun and welds rather nicely in DS.


The polka dot effect here is made using various sizes of circle punches. Then I randomly adhere them to my base.

I got lots of questions yesterday about the ribbon I use. I buy most of my ribbon from Papertrey Ink. There ribbon is high quality and very affordable! Also, yesterday's bow was not tied. Instead it was made with smoke, mirrors, a little adhesive, and a button. Very easy actually. I will have to do a tutorial sometime.


The patterned paper is Bo Bunny double dot.



Have a terrific Thursday and I will see you all back here tomorrow!!

I love this card. You have the best ideas. I got this cartridge at a WalMart for $17. I don't know why it was in their clearance section. I wasn't sure I should get it. The colors they used on the box does nothing for the images. Knowing that the letters weld together is great info. Thanks.

Chris Wooten said...

I love to take punches and place the object around my card base. I did a baby card similiar to this one. I used pastels of course for the baby.

I had not thought about getting that cartridge.

Love the circles on this card and your bows are always the greatest. This week has flown by. I had a long weekend and had also taken today off to go to Summer Celebration which is the big garden expo at our local UT agriculture education and research center. It was very hot but so informative. There were speakers from all across the state.
