Two Cards Using Wild Card







I am bowled over with the new Cricut cartridge Wild Card. Before buying it, I couldn't really find out much information about it and had reservations that the cards were cut to a prescribed shape and that I wouldn't have much room to be creative. How wrong could I be, it's simply fabulous, all the cards come with their own perfectly fitting envelope.



Here are my first two, the baby carriage was cut first out of very pastel blue cardstock, then out of pattern paper. A lot of stitching, a brad, and the cute baby face from New Arrival, stamped with a Peachy Keen face stamp, and I was done.



The second one is the telephone card, which I cut out of a double sided cardstock and decorated with ribbon, prima flowers and gems.

Enfys I wish you did not make this cart look sooooooooo appealing especially as I am saving for my puppy chihuahua! lol
These are so fabulous. Have you done any altering to the cut or do they come like this?

I also absolutely love the Wild Card cart! I have been making Halloween cards and with the layering, adding stickles and a few embellies they are fabulous! And I LOVE that you can make envelopes for each. When I first saw the cart pics I was wondering how you would find envelopes to fit some of the odd shapes...I didn't know you could make envelopes too! And have you tried the alpha that comes with it? I LOVE it too...it is kind of a casual, wild cursive and it is really fun!
