My first project is a cute little invitation I created using Elegant Edges (p. 28, Book feature of <Flower1> and <Flower1-s>).
For this cute little card/invite I used the above keys on my Elegant Edges cartridge, cut at 4.18" H. I used my Gypsy to flip the <Flower1> Book Feature and then slid it to the <Flower1-s> Book Feature and welded the two together for the pink layer (just pink cardstock from my stash). For the purple layer, I used the <Flower1-s> for both sides (again, just cardstock from my stash), flipped one and welded it to the other to form the card shape. Then, just glue the two layers together with your favorite adhesive, score and fold, and stamp with your desired message. Easy peasy, nice and breezy! I made mine into a baby shower invite using some stamps from my stash (Recollections stamps found in the Michael's clearance bins). The inside is printed via my computer and just cut out of white paper so that it shows up on the dark purple. These would also be good for a little girl's birthday party or just some girly-girl stationery. The colors could also be changed to work for other themes as well.
For my next project I used..........YUP!!!! You guessed it: DAMASK DECOR!!! My new favorite cartridge!!
Prior to stamping
For these lovely cards, I used the Card Feature of the <Btrfly> and <Btrfly-s> keys on p. 66 of the Damask Decor handbook. I just cut the <Btrfly-s> Card Feature out of light purple cardstock, from my stash, at 3.03" (I used my Gypsy, for going with just the Cricut and the Cart, just use 3"). Then, I cut the <Btrfly> Card Feature at 3.03" out of both white and light pink cardstock since I wanted to make a couple of different cards. The "lacy" butterfly layers easily over the card silhouette and you have a cute and simple card in a matter of two minutes, literally! I just stamped sentiments from my stamp stash and VOILA! Done. (If I were a bit more talented, I sure would like to "bling" these up a little more with some embossing powders, but......maybe soon I will have time to try it more in-depth and make something totally "wow" worthy!)
Okay.....so those are my projects using only Feature Keys on my Cricut Cartridges.....Would you have ever guessed you could use the Book Feature to make a card? Or that there would be butterflies on Damask Decor?? Well, now you know, so......Happy Crafting!!!!!
