Thanks for being my friend card made using Carousel Cricut Lite cartridge

Hello, friends!

I hope you all had a great 4th! I know I did. I did not enjoy driving the 2 hours to Wichita Falls, but had fun once I got there. If you guys are ever in the area you have to check out the scrapbooking store in town. It is one of legends! Seriously, you gotta check it out!!

On to the card...

This card was made using the Carousel Cricut Lite cartridge. This cartridge is perfect for scrapbooking those Circus or State Fair pictures. However, there are some cuts on this fun cartridge that can be used for lots of different things. For example, this ticket is great for stamping a sentiment on. You could also use it as a journaling tag or gift tag.



the ticket is is cut at 1 3/4". The paper is from Papertrey Ink and the stamp is from Close To My Heart.


See you back here tomorrow with another project!

Have a FANTASTIC Wednesday!

Melanie, great card. I think that the designs on this lite carts are so creative and adorable. There is something on each of them for everyone. I just love them. It is really hard to say no to any of them for that reason. PC really has come a long way. Sure provide us crafters with so many great products.
