Hello Everyone! I thought I'd share a little project I made on my Cricut the other night. I thought it would be cute to make a matching tag for the card this time. Both the cake and the ice cream cone were cut with the Sweet Treats cartridge and I used DCWV Sweet Stack paper.
Now that I've really gotten used to the Cricut I'm finding that I like the images better when I add details to them before assembling. For instance on the ice cream cone I used my stylus to add a crosshatch pattern to the cone, I added chalks to the edges of each piece, and then finally added highlights with my white gel pen. I did the same on the pieces for the cake, and then added dots along the scalloped edge on the top of the tag.
I finished off the inside of the card with some punched hearts that I sponged with ink on one side and then accented on the other with the white gel pen. I suppose I could have cut them on the Cricut but that would have require switching cartridges. Looks like I'm going to have to get that thing (I think it's called the carousel) so I can avoid having to switch out cartridges in the middle of a project.
Well I hope you enjoyed my project today. I'm heading back downstairs to play until dinner and then I'm going to work in the yard this evening. My vegetable garden is really coming along and it's time to stake up the tomato plants and weed again after all the rain we've had. I hope you're having a wonderful day!
