Time To Hop!!

A BIG thanks to Erica over at My Cricut Craft Room for hosting this awesome "14 Days of Love Blog Hop"!  What a great way to start off the month of February and bring in Valentine's Day!  I am super excited to be a part of this hop.

My project is a card that I made using the Cricut cartridge Creative Cards. I think that this cartridge has a lot of possibilities.  If you are not familiar with this cartridge you can check it out here. One of the main reasons that I got this was because I LOVE the window card on it.  That being said here is what I made.......

 Here is what I cut using the cartridge Creative Cards.  I made my cut at five inches. (Though it isn't shown I cut the window pane twice.  I wanted one to put on the inside of the card) Using my Cuttlebug I embossed a couple of the pieces. I also inked the edges of some.

Here is my card!

Here is how it opens up.

This is where I put the second window pane. I feel that the card has a more finished/polished look with the window pane on the inside.

I love that there is a spot that does not show through the window to write a message.
To make this card I used card stock and bling from my stash. The rubber stamp used was one that I had. It is unmounted and I do not know what company made it.  I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol.I used Stickles also.  I used acetate between the window panes.  All cards on this cartridge have envelopes to match.  I am not big on making my own envelopes but if you like to do that this cartridge has the feature to do so. Luckily for me this card will fit in a standard envelope.

Again, a BIG thanks to Erica for including me in this hop.  Now here is the line up for the fourteen days.  Be sure to check out all of the great projects that are being shared.  If you are unsure of where to hop to each day just head to My Cricut Craft Room and start there. Enjoy!
