You're Sweet card made using the NEW Cricut Nifty Fifty cartridge!

Hello, friends!! I hope you had a great weekend! Mine was fun, but exhausting. I have tons of homework to do today and I don't wanna! Seriously, going to school when you are older is tough.

I have another project that I made using the Nifty Fifty cricut cartridge. This cartridge has lots to offer, but this bunch of cherries called to me! I don't know what it is about fruit, but I am always drawn to the imagery of cherries, peaches, and berries!

This cartridge cut a nice background as the base cut, so it makes it really great for card making! It makes giving your card a focal point an absolute snap!

The cherries were cut at 4 1/4".
The paper is from Crate Paper and the ribbon and stamp are from Close To My Heart.


Have a great day!!

Mary said...

What a cute card! It inspires me to use my retro papers for backgrounds (instead of looking at them, scratching my head, and saying "What was I thinking when I bought that?") Do you ever do that?

Windy said...

Nice card! I'm drawn to fruit also, but am never sure quite how to use them. I always think I have to do some sort of theme, i.e. cupcakes for birthday, etc. But now I think I just need to get away from that way of thinking. Thanks.

Hang in there with school! On one hand you appreciate the knowledge more, but there are just too many competing demands (& only one of you and 24 hours in a day)!
