I got out the manual and started flipping through it and was amazed at all the cute designs on it.
I love the features on this cartridge....one feature I just love was that it cuts out a card.
Here is a shot of the image and card that I selected for this project:
As you can see in the screen shot above there is a card feature on the top right. I love that! You can get all kinds of decorative edges for your cards!
I used the following supplies:
Cardstock and printed paper: DCWV Linen Closet
Embossing Envelop: Script Texture by Cuttlebug
1 inch circle punch
Small Scalloped Punch by Fiskars
Swaroski Crystal: Hotfix by Jolee
Ribbon by Offray
Tim Holtz Distressing Tool
Birthday Wishes sentiment by Paper Trey Ink (Mixed Messages)
Ranger Ink Old Paper
Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip Ink
I used my Tim Holtz distressing tool to scuff up the edges and then used Ranger Ink Old Paper to distress the edges a bit more. After adhering all the pieces I added a little bling to the girl's dress. I love bling, as you know!
I cut the card at 5 1/2 inches (which will fit in a n A2 envelope).
I cut the mat at 5 inches and the girl image and shadow at 3 3/4 inches.
I added some paper to the inside and used Paper Trey Ink's Fillable Frames #1 (both the die and the stramps) for the sentiment.
I love the way this turned out!
I also made this one:
Don't you just love that scalloped edge? I love, love, love it. It's a brand new just released die from Paper Trey Ink. It comes in two sizes for a horizontal cut or a vertical cut and is called Paper Edgers #3. It retails for $12 which I think is very reasonable. I run Paper Trey Ink dies through my Cuttlebug and get perfect cuts every time! Very cool. I used Linen Closet papers again by DCWV. I added some small pearls from Recollections to the baby carriage and used a small sentiment from Paper Trey Ink (Mixed Messages) on the bottom right insde which says "Little One". A little bit of thin pink organza ribbon tied at the top finished this simpler card off!
I really enjoyed working on these two cards and learning a bit more about this awesome cartridge!
