My Cricut Craft Room - Would you guess Wednesday


Today is Would You Ever Guess Wednesday at My Cricut Craft Room.  What does this mean, you ask?  Well on Wednesday's Erica challenges us to use only the Feature keys on the Cricut Cartridges.  I really love designing for this day becasue I tend to overlook the feature keys but there are so many treasures to found. :)

Today's project I made an A2 size card and a matching gift holder from the Something to Celebrate Cricut Cartridge.  They both can be found using the Decor Feature Key.
The card is button 37 on the overlay, cut at 5.5 x 4.25.  I used my Gypsy so I could use the exact measurements I wanted (this is one of my favorite features on the Gypsy). 
I then pressed Shift and the same key at the same measurement to cut the background which is the polka dot paper.  The Happy Birthday sentiment can be found on the Martha Steward Birthday Cakes Cricut Cartridge.  This was cut at 1.43. 
Did you know you could use Cricut Cake Cartridges to cut paper as well?
To finish my card I added some doodling and stickles for some bling.

The matching gift holder is button 22 on the overlay and cut at 3.5.
To get the polka dot paper cut you just push the Shift key and button 22 again cut at 3.5.

There you have it, now would you have guessed I could find a cute coordinating card and gift card holder using Feature Keys?  Don't forget to really look at all your options. 
It's a whole new world of possiblities.
