Here is a cute little card I made. I have to say, I was excited to finally get some Paper Trey Ink Paper, and I love how thick it is, but I am disgusted with how it cuts in my Cricut. One shade of green seems to cut not so great but useable, and another shade of green is shredded beyond belief. I used the cutting settings just as listed in the Cricut Cutting Guides. In fact with just a few tries I ruined my Cricut blade and had to replace it. The only thing I have gotten to cut well is just plain simple edges. I am really not happy about that :(.
But I love this card. This darker green grass layer didn't cut that great but I smoothed out the rough edges. So I had to use Recollections for the other layer. The flower tops were from a Jolee's stickers set that I got for 1.50 at scrapbuck.com. You should check them out, they give free UPS shipping on a 20.00 order. And all their prices are really cheap. I got 5 packs of foam squares, 2 sets of acrylic stamps (nice ones that go for 9.99 at M's) and about 7 or so 3D sticker packs. Just the two stamp sets would have been that much. You can't beat it.
I love these flowers. They are made with felt and are stictched with real stitching and have the gem stone already in the center. You get 3 each of 3 colors in the pack. Perfect. I actually love them so much that I went back on and ordered 10 more packs of these. LOL. I figure I will use them on lots of different cards.
Hope you enjoy!
