Hi Everyone - Happy 4th of July weekend! Isn't it great that the 4th fell on a Monday this year? I just LOVE 3-day weekends! My "extra cards on hand" stash got hit pretty hard last month, so I am in the process of replenishing. I've been VERY anxious to try out my new Florals Embellished Cricut cartridge, and I LOVE it! I really enjoy making 4x4 cards - they're small enough to make quickly, they're big enough to get the "wow" factor, and you can make an envelope for them out of a regular sized piece of paper. Here's the one I made last night:
The card uses 3 of my favorite papers, which I'll specify below. The cut is mounted on the card using Pop-Dots, to give it some dimension. This cut is 7 layers thick, so it may not have needed it, but I wanted it to have that extra pop! I left the inside blank so that they can be used for whatever occasion comes up at the last minute - all I need to do is stamp a quick sentiment inside, and I'm ready to go:
I love how summery this card looks - guess that means that I need to use it soon! Happy Independence Day!
