Here are two totally adorable baby cards that I made using my new Formal Occasion cartridge. I have wanted this cartridge for MONTHS and held back on getting it. I love the little scenes in it and the carriage and such...but anyway, I was going to go purchase some Imagine Ink on sale for Black Friday when I realized that Cricut Rewards has each of them for 500 points, and I was lacking 70 points because I had used my large accumulation of points earlier in the spring so I ended up figuring it made more sense for me to go purchase this cartridge on sale for 24.99 and get the missing points, than to purchase the inks. So now I have the cart I have been wanting and I will use my points soon for free inks!!! Anyway back to my cards. I just took one of the little scenes and made it into a shape card. I embossed and used Perfect Pearls spray on the clouds. I outlined the moon with my Stardust pen and then did the stitch lines with it too. I did not care for the stars that cut with this, so I just punched my own out with two punches. I stuck a bow to a button to give it an added touch and added a little bling on my stars. Inside I wrote, "Congrats on Your New Addition". Love these cards.
