Friendship card made using the Elegant Edges card.



I hope you are all staying warm and cozy! It has been pretty chilly here in the Dallas area, so I cannot even imagine what you guys are dealing with up north! I especially feel sorry for those of you in Michigan (stay warm Ms. Joan) and Wisconsin! The news people were saying something about it being -40 degrees and my eyes just glazed over. That is crazy cold! Now, I have not always lived in Dallas. Originally, I am from the Texas Panhandle and it gets pretty cold up there in the winter. People think all of Texas is warm, but that is not the case. However, as cold as it sometimes was I never recall an Amarillo weather man ever talking about -40. That is just craziness!

Today's card is made using the Elegant Edges cartridge and a few Close To My Heart stamps. I actually made this with all of you in mind!







This week's prize is the Wild Card 2 cartridge!! The winner will be announced on Sunday the 12th.

Your card is so adorable gosh I fell in love at first glance. How clever to use your Elegant Edges cuts this way and the stamps you chose along with the colors just a darling card. Thanks for your warm wishes they brought a big 'ol smile to my face and did warm my heart.

Beautiful card--I like the addition of the pearls.

Love the card! I like the pearl accents you used, and the color combination was perfect. It has been very cold up here in Illinois, but the kids went to school today... only -10 out so I guess they could go.

I recently purchased the Elegant Edges Cartridge and loved the card that you made - very creative. Would also love to win the Wild Card 2 cartridge; very cute cuts to use for my grandchildren.

Such a beautiful card! I love the design and the colors. I really like the way inking the edges make the layers stand out and how much better it looks. Great sentiment! Thanks for sharing. Edwina Brown

I love it when you use a cart I already have to make you cards! Have I ever told you that you ROCK? Lovely card that I'm going to try to emulate. Thanks for sharing

Your friendship card has a pretty snowflake look to it. Like the added pearls & bow.

Melanie, this is one of your prettiest cards EVER. I love the colors, and the way that they all work together without having too much contrast to distract the eye. The pearl accents are just the right touch as is the inking of the edges. Really pretty!

I have a question though. You usually have a link to the CCR and Gypsy files. Do you always alter the original Cricut images on your projects? For those who don't use CCR or a Gypsy - can they make your projects? This card in particular is so lovely that I WOULD love to try it. Can you tell us what alterations you made to the Cricut images? Maybe I'll try to use the images straight from the card and come up with something similar. Thanks!

Love this card, Melanie! I really need to use my Cricut more ~ love the shapes you've chosen from Elegant Edges.
We're having a heat wave here in NE Ohio today ~ the high was 19 degrees! Much better than the -16 we had yesterday with a windchill of -40!
