My Cricut Craft Room - Would you guess Wednesdays

Happy Wednesday,

We are half way through the week.  Yay!  Today I created this 5x5 card using the Storybook Cricut Cartridge.  This cartridge has a lovely font, but it also has some great Function Keys which is what we DT members focus on for Would you guess Wednesdays at

My cuts today are from page 47 of the handbook.  I first selected the Accent/Frame Function key and pressed shift and this was cut at 3.75.  Then from the same page I selected the Shorty/Holes Function key and pressed shift for this cut as well...this was cut at 2.34.  I used my Gypsy so I was able to place the flower over the frame and used the sizing arrow until it layered perfectly.  I then stringed some ribbon I had from my stash through the holes on the frame, popped up my flower with some foam adhesive squares, doodled, and added some stickles for some bling and ended up with this super simple yet elegant card.

  1. Saw your card over at Erica's really is very, very pretty! Love the layers and the ribbon threaded through the frame is a very nice touch!

  2. This is one of my favorite cartridges ~you can create so many lovely cards with it. Your card is very beautiful! I love the addition of the ribbon and 'stitching' around the frame. Thanks for sharing...:O)
