Playing with my Cricut and the new arrivial cartridge

So it's been a while since I have made something with my cricut...I was feeling "withdrawals"...LOL...Yes, you really can be addicted to something that much :)

Here are a couple of baby girl cards that I made yesterday using the new arrival cartridge:



Basically, they are the same card...but I love that quantity button! I made about 10 of these...while cleaning yesterday...don't you love how you can walk away from your bug...and it keeps working :)

So here's the card recipe (for those interested):

Using your New arrival cartridge cut the outfit cut on white using shadow feature at 4 1/4.

Reset your cricut and choose the outfit cut again at 4 1/4 cut this 2 times using 2 different pattern papers.

Now assemble your pattern paper onto your white cardstock. Assemble the "diaper cover" and use a bit of adhesive on the back side and put between the 2 "dresses"...so it hangs down a bit further.

Punch holes at the top of the outfit (just beside the neckline) and tie with ribbon. (I did use 2 eyelets on the front side of the card...but this is optional.

Accent as you wish. (I used some faux stitching and some distress ink.)

So have you heard that Cricut is looking for 1,000 demonstrators across the United States!?!...if you haven't you should head over to the message board and check it out! (click here for shortcut :))

Also, don't forget about the "Threading Water Punch" GIVEAWAY on my blog...click here for full details!
