A $10 coupon code for anything in the store!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!


Here is my project-


My "new" portion of the card is the woman with a drink (Pack Your Bags, Cricut Access). I consider the sentiment bubble new also, because this was the stamp and chipboard that came with the CTMH Artiste cartridge that I have NEVER before used! I'm definitely going to use those stamps and chipboard items more!

The paper I made the woman and speech bubble with is all out of my scrap stash. I used a dark grey from Michaels for the mat, and the patterned paper is unknown-but I'm finally starting to use my OLD papers.

Have a wonderful day today!

The "new" on this card is the fold. I hadn't tried this before, and I learned some things. One thing I learned is that this fold needs the extra room at the top to be able to fold it flat. And the second is that it really is easier to attach the red cardstock to the back of the card, as shown-
