Cards and Envelopes using the Cricut

I just got three Cricut Cartridges for my birthday, Wild Card, Stamping Solutions and Storybook. They have quickly become my favorites! I have been excited to play around with them along with my new bird acrylic stamps.
I learned the hard way that it's important to cut the envelope fit to page first before cutting the card otherwise your card may end up being too big for the envelope.

    I love that purple see through look~
    I could see that design as a pretty EASTER card or a Sympathy card too!

    I love the OWLS eyeballs on the new owl card!
    Gives a Neat look to the card!

    And finally the last card has soo much detail my gosh it looks store bought!!

  5. Beautiful cards! I'll have to take a look at my WC cartridge again as I grew frustrated with the whole envelope size thing. I also just learned you can delete those little fold cut things using the hide feature on Design Studio. Thanks for sharing!
