Thank Ewe

So another reason why I like the "Just Because Cards" cartridge is because of the cute puns they have! 

Sorry this picture couldn't be any better. In case you can't see it, the 'grainy' blue background actually resembles jeans texture!

A7 or 5X7 in card:

Materials used:
- Light blue cardstock 10x5 in
- White cardstock 4.75x6.75 in
- Citrus Matstack
- Thank ewe cut at 3.5 in (I think..sry!)
- Lamb cut at 4 in.
- Bling from Studiog
- Michaels $1 bin ribbon

I am now in love with this type of bow and here is the great tutorial I found to share with you all!

"Just Because" Cards Cartridge

My new "Just Because" Cards cricut cartridge came in and I was super excited to open it especially since I won this cartridge for under $20 on eBay!

I've seen this "Thanks a Melon" card everywhere and decided to make a version of my own =)

This A2 card was really simple and easy to make!

Materials used:
- Lime green cardstock 8.5x5.5 in
- Patterned cardstock from Recollections 4x5.25 in
- Thanks a Melon cut at 2 in
- Melon cut at 2.5 in
- Martha Stewart edge punch
- Essentials Ribbon: yellow

So the "Thanks a melon" and "melon" cut sizes are a little misleading...but I really did have to cut the "melon" at 2.5 in for it to be that ''big'' of a size! I must have misread/skipped a section on the instructions on how to use this cartridge!

Isn't this card simple and cute?

Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to leave a comment =D

Happy Valentine's day!

I am doing a quick post before I am off to my Valentine's day dinner!
This is a really simple and cute cricut card you can make for a birthday event.

A2 card:

Materials used:
- Green cardstock 8.5x5.5 in
- Yellow cardstock 5.5x4 in
- Patterned paper 4.5x3.5 in
- Ice cream cut at 2.5 in
- Martha Stewart edge punch
- Ribbon from...Michaels? (dont remember!)

^ For those of you who own this cartridge, you may realize that the ice cream is missing a smiley face...! when I was done cutting all the parts, I couldn't find it's mouth anywhere!!! Therefore, I left it out. haha. Probably would have been cuter with the smiley face, though!

Hope you all enjoy this bright and fun birthday card! Thanks for stopping by!
