Cricut You are a-maiz-ing card

Cricut You are amaizing card
Quick and Easy card Monday
Hello, friends!

I am hosting the challenge this week over at Bitten By the Bug 2. This week, I asked for everyone to do something food related. It will hopefully make them step outside of their comfort zone a bit. I am pretty sure I have never cut out a corn cob.

For this card, I used the Country Life cartridge. I thought it would be fun to use the play on the word amazing. Since I do not own a stamp set for that, I made my own sentiment using an alphabet stamp set. It is easier than you might think. The stamp set I used is very whimsical and is quite forgiving if it is not perfectly lined up! It is called Glamour Lowercase and will retire in September, so if you want it get it soon!

If you have a Cricut Explore, here is the file: Cricut You are a-maiz-ing card

If you are with out an Explore, I cut out the corn cob at 2 1/2".

Such a cute card Melanie! And something as minor as placing the colorful 'dots' is something you do so think it's a minor thing, but it isn't. It's something I struggle with ...and it's what sets you apart!

What a fun word play-those are my favorite kinds of cards! Very fun idea for a challenge and your card rocks. I don't think I have ever cut out a corn cob either, LOL! So glad you came back to the BBTB2 team!!!!!! Your amazing creativity would have been greatly missed.
