Cricut Challenge 13: Just Because Cards

Plugging along with my personal Cricut Challenge...and that is to make at least one thing from all the cartridges I have. I'm sort of going out of order but like I's my challenge and I am the queen of my blog so I can amend the rules when I like!  Anyway, I made this card for AngelCakes' mommy who is a tad under the weather.

I decided to use the pickup truck because I thought it was really cute...but "girly-fied" it up by using purples and soft greens.  I also put a bit of foam tape under the car to pop it up a bit. A little purple ribbon also made it a little more feminine I think.  I thought it turned out pretty cute and I loved the cut.

I used all scraps I had...mostly Bazzil and Core'dinations cardstock, I believe.  I also used Stampin' Up! Sage Shadow ink for the sentiment.  The mat shape is a Nestabilities and then I just hand cut the green mat around it because the next size up die made too fat of a mat for my liking.  I used a white Signo pen for some pen stitching and although you can't see it in the photo I also edged around the lettering with a glitter pen to give it a little more something or other. I don't exactly know what it gave it but it finished it off nicely, I thought.

Happy Crafting!


  1. Hi Susan,
    What a great idea, and the sentiment is so appropriate. You rock girl.
    Happy Sunday


  2. A lovely "pick-up" card for someone. Hope she will be feeling better soon.

  3. That should definitely perk up/pickup Cindy.

  4. Brooke loved the card. I do too. I love the truck and the stitching. It really did give her a "pick up"! Thanks for thinking of her!
