My Cricut Craft Room - Would you Guess Wednesday

Happy Wednesday...that's right we are half way through the week. Wahoo!

Today at My Cricut Craft Room is Would You Ever Guess Wednesday, which means that Erica challenges us designers to only use the Feature buttons on the Cricut Cartridges.  I love creating on this day because I always find cuts that most times get overlooked. 

For today's creation I took Would You Ever Guess Wednesday a step further and used paper from a Christmas would you have guessed this paper came from a Christmas stack? 
It is from the Echo Park Holly Jolly 6x6 Paper Pad. 
I just love the colors in this collection. 

Also my tip for my alternative to border punches.
I love the look of border punches but
1) I don't want to spend the money on the punches
and 2) I don't have room to store bulky punches
Sooo...using my Gypsy I created my own Border "punch" by selecting the border from
Elegant Edges and welding it to the rectangle from Gypsy Font.
I love the welding feature on the Gypsy.
Elegant Edges has the perfect borders in the Borders feature for this technique.

Cricut cuts:
Straight From the Nest:  Border Feature, Button 33 on the overlay, cut at 1.75
Elegant Edges:  Border Feature, Button 23 on the overlay, cut at .52
Gypsy Font:  Monogram Shadow <Shift>, Button 44, cut at W5.25 x H3.62 (this is a square made into a rectangle with the Gypsy)

To finish my card I added my Ribbon and Divine Twine, doodled around the edges of the card and added my Sentiment which is from Pink By Design: Take the Cake.

Please go to My Cricut Craft Room to see what my Design Team sister's have created today.
