Another Cricut 360 Blog Challenge

 I had so much with the first challenge I decided to jump on the second one.  The challenge is to make a circular thank you card.  Easy Peasy!  





I used my new favorite cart - wait for it - okay, you know what it is - Elegant Edges!  I used one of the best paper packs that I have ever owned - DCWV's Lemon Flower Stack.  I am in LOVE with these papers.  I would buy another stack if I could find one - I picked it up at Joann's several months ago and no one has had any since!  

A bit more about the card - It is about 5 and 1/2 inches wide and opens at the side.  I used the shadow feature to weld two images together to form the base of the card.  I also used the base feature along with the frame feature.  The flower inside the frame is from Damask Decor (surprise! - not, lol).  I welded the flower to the frame and then used a lot of dimension around the card to make things pop. I also used one of the borders from Elegant edges.  If I didn't own a gazillion punches I might use this cart exclusively for borders from now on - they are THAT nice. The stamp is from Verve's Thoughtful Accents set, and the tag is from Spellbinders - Labels Eighteen. The leaves are Spellbinders foliage, another set I can't use enough.  I used the die as a stencil and inked the foliage and the sides of the tag with Stampin' Up Pear Pizzaz ink.  The butterfly is from Martha Stewart Elegant Cake Art and I used, appropriately enough, Martha Stewart glitter to make it shine.  I love this card.  Sigh.

  22. Dayna,
    I thought this stack was so beautiful and didn't think i would find it. I was at Joan's today and they had a few in stock. (So I bought one!) The lady said that they don't carry it normally but that she thinks its going to be a regular for a little while. Just wanted to let you know:)
