Great card and I think that the paper is the best ever! I also am a huge Custom Crops fan, so the candy would be fantastic! TFS!
Meredemaison, if you could please email me your name, address, and phone number I will arrange for the Custom Crops gift voucher! Congratulations!!
Last week Cricut updated the Design Studio software fonts and I was finally able to cut with Damask Decor using CDS!!! Yes, I was doing happy dances! Though, hold on to your socks! I have also been using Cricut Craft Room more frequently. And yesterday I received an email saying that CCR was moving on past the Beta phase. I need to update my Imagine and my Expression 2 and try cutting with my new machines. I have a cut file all set to go for the Imagine using Lori's Garden so this is GREAT NEWS!
Anyway, I digress. Following the CDS update I decided to play with Damask Decor a bit. I decided to make a card from the cartridge and top the card with cuts from the cartridge. I loved the shape of this "half tag" card (my name, not Cricut's) because it gave me the opportunity to use the tag shaped floral cut. I added the icon layer over the tag, along with additional layers.
I used the Hide Select Contour feature in CDS and created a matching bottom layer tag in rust. I could have found the tag on another cartridge, but this way the tags matched exactly.
I recently ran upon a HUGE Prima sale -- 40% off all Prima. I dug through my newly replenished stash and found brown Prima pearls that match correctly. I used a craft knife and cut the pearls apart into usable strips.
I finished the card with a length of ribbon and cream and brown Prima flowers. The little brown roses were also from the sheet of Primas.
Thank you for stopping by today. I am hoping to get in some crafting time today but I will starting preparations for an event I am hosting on Saturday. I am having some girlfriends over for a Girlie Luncheon and a small book make and take. I have to prep my make and takes. I will keep you posted on how the event progresses!
