Cricut Bullseye card

Hello, friends!
Cricut Bullseye card
Today, I have a fun Valentine card I made using the Stamp of the month, called This Moment. It coordinates with the Artbooking cartridge, so using it is really easy. 

Also, I used the Bits and Pieces cartridge for the striped tag. I thought it had the look of a shield, so it would be perfect for a bullseye. 

You might notice that my sentiment is stamped with multiple colors. How did I do this? Well, I have found post it tape adhesive rolls! They sell them at any office supply store and are a necessary tool for your craft room. 

To get this effect, 
- Simply put the tape over the portion you do not want to stamp.
- Then, ink up the stamp with your desired ink color. 
- Take off the tape before you stamp on to your paper. 
- Repeat this process for every part of the stamp. 

I will post a pictorial on how to do this later on this week if you guys are interested.

If you have an Explore, here is the file: Cricut Bullseye card

If you are Exploreless, here are the sizes:
striped tag (Bits and Pieces) - 4"
circle (Artbooking) - 2.25"

Great card! I love the multi coloured stamping technique. I found some of the post it tape at our local $rama store and it is a very handy product to have on hand.
Thanks for sharing your lovely work and hope you are having a good week! :)
