You're a ray of Sunshine card made using the NEW Simple Cards cartridge.

Hello, friends!

Yesterday one of you asked me about one of the cuts on the new Creative Cards cartridge. The card at the far right on the top row is not fish kissing. Instead it is supposed to be tulips. As someone who considers tulips one of their favorite flowers, I did not know what it was either until I saw the name of the cut. Sigh...

Today I have a card made using the NEW Simple Cards cartridge! This cartridge is a really great one too. There is just two cuts for every card. However, I added a few more things to every card I made using this cartridge. Nothing too complicated though. I just felt like it needed just a little something extra.

The stamp is from Close To My Heart and is called Patterned Pennants!
The patterned paper is from Echo Park.

I agree with the rest, I love your card. Love this cartridge, as well. Thanks for sharing your cut in CCR. Always enjoy uploading and editing your creations (I have an Imagine, that's why.) Thanks for the give-away.

Tami B. said...

I love sunbursts, but as for those "tulips", they do look like kissing fish & what's worse, the beautiful flourish can't be cut separately to use, at least not in one piece.

Great card. But I was looking at the options on the cartridge and didn't see where the sun rays came into play. Did you get them from another cartridge? Thanks for offering the cut file.
