Cruisin' Cards

CTMH Cruisin' B & T Duos Paper
 Hi Blog Friends!  It has been almost a week since I last posted.  It is for all good reasons, though.  My dd1 was home on Spring Break and we had a nice, though too short, visit.  I miss her.  The card pictured above will go in the mail for her tomorrow.
Cricut Art Philosophy Shape 2 with Stamped Image and Chipboard Dimensional Element
 While the paper packet was out, I decided to make a couple other very easy and simple to assemble cards.  These are all standard 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" cards.  The background patterned papers were all cut at 5 1/4" x 4" so that the White Daisy card base would frame them. On all of them, I used baker's twine.  It is a fun and quick embellishment.  And so cool that the colors match the paper exactly!

Lagoon and Black Baker's Twine With Cranberry Brads and  White Eyelets
 The Dimensional Elements (chipboard) pieces are cut to match the stamp image shapes from the Art Philosophy Cartridge.  I cut the black cardstock shape a quarter inch bigger with the Cricut to act as a frame/base for the image.

 The three different patterned papers pictured on the cards are all double sided.  None of the reverse sides were used on these cards.  One has a beautiful grey pattern, one is filled with Scrabble pieces, and the third is a black base with swirly lines in different complementary colors that match the fronts.

Thank you for stopping by today!  Have a wonderful day!
