New Cartridge Cuts

I had a wonderful weekend with just my sister and parents. Adults. Leslie and I may have done a little shopping so I had two new cartridges to play with--new to me anyway. Wild Card and Lite Lacy Labels. Mainly, I played with cuts just to see what I would get. But, I did use a couple of those for cards. Leslie offered a lot of (good) advice.

This card used Lacy Labels. There is not an actual instruction booklet with these carts and it took us just a minute to figure out the layering plan. Mainly it helped when I pushed the correct buttons on the Cricut. The background is embossed with my new Tim Holtz folder "Gridlock" from the Texture Fades, Dot-Matrix & Gridlock set. The embossing is a little more faded than it should have been as I was using my parents' marble rolling pin as the embossing tool. I'm looking forward to trying these folders out with the Cuttlebug. The "Happy Birthday" sentiment for both cards was cut from Wild Card.

Wild Card was used to create the argyle design on this card. Leslie suggested using good ole George for the diamond background under Happy Birthday and, although simple, I really like this card.
