Card Creating Tuesday on Cricut Craft Room


Hello!! Its Tuesday and today I am being featured over on Erica's My Cricut Craft Room blog for Card Creating Tuesday. I created another birthday card. This one will have a dual purpose. I made it for my oldest son's birthday and will make a duplicate for my step-father-in-law. I have had my Handyman cartridge for a little while and haven't really tried it out much. This is a cartridge that I won on a blog hop and I was so excited to win it!

The drill was cut at 3.50" and then accented with my white Signo pen. I almost cannot create a card without that pen! I used my computer to generate the sentiment "You know the drill..." and then simply used scissors to cut the ends of the paper to make it look like a ribbon. Fast and easy card (that somehow still seems to take me forever to pull together). Hope you liked it. To see some other great cards made by some very talented crafters, please go to Erica's blog at http://mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com/

Awesome card. I like how you made your own banner by cutting the ends:) Some cartridges have that banner but if you don't have one, make one!!! Such a smart crafter!!!
