Exploring Cricut Wonderful Wednesday

Hi! I love to go to the older cartridges and make cards, and this one was made from Stretch Your Imagination.






Use the card feature to cut this card (I cut mine at 5"). The plain green cardstock wasn't doing anything for me, so I embossed the card using Darice's Snowflakes embossing folder. Better, but not there yet. So I used a watered down white ink to run over the entire front of the card. Way better, but I wanted some sparkle so I colored each snowflake with Sakura Gelly Stardust gel pen. Finally! I added a two sided paper that was a light gold on one side, and a patterned gold with Christmas trees on the other side. Finished off the inside with ivory paper with stamped sentiment & image. Added a green gingham ribbon & voila! A Christmas card very different from the "store bought" ones!

Make some unusual cards yourself with the older cartridges!
