Would You Ever Guess Wednesday - Ericas Craft Room



Hello!! Today for my design team post, I created something that we call a Would You Ever Guess Wednesday project. That means on Wednesdays, we make something from our cartridges that only uses the function buttons on the overlays. It means not using the main image shown for a button but one of the other images shown. We also can use a Cake cartridge to make a paper project.

I decided to use my go to cartridge, Art Philosophy for my card shape using the Card function button. This came from page 37 in the AP handbook. I cut it at 4.25" I also cut another card at 3.75" from the flowered paper and then cut at the score line to create the top layer for my card.

Next I chose to use the Cricut American Alphabet cartridge that came with my E2 to cut the sentiment Thank You. I also cut a shadow. Both of these cuts came from page 63 of the handbook and used the Font 3 and the Font 3 Shadow buttons.

To complete the card, I added some doodling with my white Signo Uniball pen and then added the crocheted butterfly. I ordered these handmade elements from a lady on the Cricut.com message board. She also made some cute flowers in assorted colors for me.

Hope you enjoyed my WYEGW card. Please also visit Erica's blog to see the projects posted by my fellow design team sisters.
