A very merry Christmas card made using the NEW Ornamental Iron Cricut cartridge.

Hello, friends!

This evening I have a card that I made using the NEW Ornamental Iron Cricut cartridge. I knew that that cartridge would be great for a lot of home decor projects, but I did not realize that it would translate into paper crafting so well. I had a ball making stuff using this cartridge. I had to think outside of the box a bit and that is always lots of fun for me!


I cut the frame at 4 1/2"
I added little red rhinestones to jazz it up a little.

The paper is from Close To My Heart.
The stamp set is from Papertrey Ink.
See you back here tomorrow for another project made with the NEW cartridges and have a great evening!

This is a beautiful card and do you know that each idea you send out is a gift and that it in turns makes me think outside the box since I don't have all these new cartridges but it makes me explore all of the 101 cartridges I do have to find similar cuts so thank you so much for this......

Clare D. said...

Love this look and will so be scraplifting the bling and iron combo. I knew I wanted this cartridge, but you just bumped it to the top of my list!

TAMIwB1234 said...

This is a perfect example of why following you is so dangerous...just when I say "I don't want/need that cart." you come along w/ projects that change my mind.

This card is really beautiful! I have this cart on my wish list, but don't think I have any problems with visualizing cards with it. That was my plan since I first saw it. I think my first card will be some sort of gate card with a beautiful garden behind it. Lovely and serene.

This is gorgeous. It's such a pretty cartridge but the cuts look so extremely intricate. Was it difficult to cut and/or lift off the mat?

This is exactly why I chose Ornamental Iron as my fav new cart from the ones just introduced. I could see using the cuts as backgrounds for cards with sentiments on top. Turned out great!
