Cricut Cardz Challenge #30

This is my card for this weeks Cricut Cardz Challenge. I used the Sweethearts and Storybook Cricut carts. 
The papers I used were from the DCWV "All about Girl's" designer paper and card stock stacks. (LOVE those stacks btw) The card measures 6 x 4 1/4. The top note shape was cut from the Storybook cart at 3 3/4". The birds and heart were cut from the Sweethearts cart at 2". The bird only faces in one direction so after you cut the 1st bird, then use the "flip" button and cut the second one. Then you will have the two love birds facing each other. The string is blue and white bakers twine. I inked around all the edges with coordinating inks.

The sentiment piece on the inside of the card was cut at 5 1/2" x 3 3/4". The top note shapes were again, cut from the Storybook cart at 3 1/4" and 2 3/4". I inked around all the edges with coordinating inks. See the video below for more information.

Happy Scrap'n!

  1. Very cute! and I really appreciate you leaving a comment over on my balloon card! I have the same background plaid-ish paper that you used in this card, but I have not used it like this. What a great idea!

  2. What a sweet little card, Ruthie. Love the little birds. I never noticed that cut on the Sweethearts cartridge. I'm glad I know it's there now.

  3. The colored twine added a perfect touch!!

  4. One word - GORGEOUS. I love your inking technique. It makes all your cards absolutely pop. Great job!


I LOVE reading your comments! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave one! :)
