Welcome to Wednesday

Hey There!

Julie here, with another inspiration project for Exploring Cricut.

I don't know about you, but the winter weather always makes me want to create using bright colors.  I grabbed the Recollections 'Citrus' cardstock pack from Michael's, and made this card for an upcoming birthday:
For this card, I used Cricut's "Edge to Edge" cartridge for the lattice mat in lime green.  I was just tickled to find that my spellbinders 'Labels 1' dies fit the center mat JUST PERFECTLY! I used those dies for all of the smaller mats.  At first, I wasn't sure about 'needing' the Edge to Edge cartridge, because I don't make large layouts, but with my gypsy I am able to shrink and alter the sizes of the cuts, and make awesome backgrounds for my cards!  I like to set layers apart by adding different features, and on this card I used my Ice Pearl Pen to 'dot' every other corner.

About this Card:
All paper - Recollections Citrus cardstock pack
Lattice mat - Cricut cut from Edge to Edge cartridge
Cuttlebug Stitched embossing folder
Sentiment - Scrappy Mom's Sweet Somethings
Spellbinders Labels 1 dies
Ice Pearl Pen, Lime Green Glitter Ribbon, 3D pop dots


  1. This has a very cool graphic look to it - I can imagine myself wanting some type of "cake" image, but this is perfect, and it doesn't need the cake. Fun colors.

  2. great card Julie! Love the vibrant colors and overall desing, the lattice background is perfect!
    Have a wonderful day!

  3. Love this! Do you think this could be shrunk on CCR also?

    1. i have played around with CCR, but not cut from it yet, but I don't see why it wouldn't work - as long as you can alter the height and width, it'll work!

    2. I will have to try it-I would love to make cards from this cartridge!

  4. This is so very pretty Julie!! I love the cuts and the colors are great. Fabulous card. :)

  5. I haven't seen this cartridge, hope to see more projects using it! This turned out great.
