I'm sorry... with cricut

Posted by Ruth at 8:15 AM
Here's a card made entirely with a Cricut cutting machine. The cartridge I used comes with the Cricut (George and Basic Shapes) so a brand-new cricut owner can make this card easily!

I started with a 4.24x5 card base in Basic Black. Then I used some of my scrap card stock in Summer Sun, Only Orange and Real Rust to cut out @, # and & in both 1 inch and 1.5 inch sizes. I glued those down randomly (don't mind the still-wet glue in the picture!) on a 4inch chat bubble in Whisper White.

On the inside I did a couple more chat bubbles (1.5 and 3 inch I think) and a 1inch heart. I left the larger chat bubble blank but I'd wanted to stamp an "I'm sorry!" near the top (leaving room for hand written sentiment).

On a repeat of this card I think I might sponge the edges of the chat bubbles, red on the front and a soft pink on the inside.

Super cute! I love different shape cards. They're so interesting. They beckon to be opened and read. Great job! TFS
