Exploring Cricut Challenge

Hi folks!

Today over at Exploring Cricut, we were challenged with coming up with a card, scrapbook layout, or papercrafting project using 1 embellishment, 2 patterned papers, and 3 cricut cuts.  What I thought would be quite the challenge, actually turned out to be not that bad!

For my card, I used the Just Because cartridge.  I decided to make the Thank Ewe card from it.  I think it turned out really well!

Both of my patterned papers came from Authentique, and the embellishment is green twine from a twine share I was a part of.  I cut the card at 5"x7".  The nice thing about the Just Because cards, is that you cut it the size you want, and then every other item you wish to cut fits perfectly in it with your pre-recorded sizes.  Love it!  I also thought the yellow for the bell was extremely too small so I used Liquid Pearls to add the bell to it.  :)

I hope you like this card as much as I do.  Now to figure out who to give it to!  :)

Craft on,
