Cricut Magazine

I recently purchased several issues of the Cricut magazine with the intention of finding out more about using my Cricut. I have been having a play trying out the new cartridges I had for my birthday as well as some of my old favourites.

Here is the first card I made, based on an article in the February / March 2011 edition. by Alisha Gordon. I used similar papers as I loved the combination of the gingham with the text paper.  I changed the greeting from 'Love' to 'Thank You' as I needed to make a thank you card. 

The heart is cut from the Sweetheart Cartridge from Magnolia Ink, So Jolly, Wrapped Plaid paper. My background is Basic Grey - Basics collection, and the paper flower is cut and pleated from Basic Grey's Blush collection. I added a felt flower and a button, with DMC thread. All papers were inked with Chalk inks.
For the lettering 'Thanks' is American Craft Thickers letter stickers and the 'You' is All My Memories, fabric letter stickers.

Thanks for looking, I will be back with some baby cards tomorrow.

I'm really enjoying these magazines.
