Cricut Creation

Hi,I've been playing with the Cricut again,after having fun making the tag card the other evening, I thought I'd make another. I've lots of male birthdays over the next few weeks so I'm warning you now, you'll be seeing at least a couple more. They are just soooooo very easy to make and great for using up remnants. I used Plantins Schoolbook Cartridge.

I've even given you a peek at the inside this time as I realised on the last post that I hadn't shared a side view.

So this time I'm sharing two views to make up for it. There's several layers involved so I got through loads of pop dots.

Once again I used up some of the rope from the new airer plus some other small pieces of ribbon. I also did some paper piercing,Haven't done this in ages but I think it adds to the look I was after. Lots of distressed edges again done with a dark brown chalk eye. I couldn't resist a close up of the button threaded with a little of the divided rope.
The card is a perfect fit for a C6 envelope.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
A Spoon Full Of Sugar 140,Birthday wishes,
CCC,Cards for teens,
PTT4 Anything goes,
Craft Your Passion 46,Male card,
Karens Doodles 51,Masculine,
Simon Says Stamp,Use some stripes,
Woodware USA 15,Shaped card *,
Paper Sundaes 57,Masculine colours.
Thanks for stopping by,

This is spectacular Julie! My cricut is gathering dust. I need a new mat and I just cant seem to find a way to use it. I love how you have darkened the edges of the stars! That looks awesome.
