Wild Card #7 and Wild Card #8

Happy Friday! Sorry I haven't posted anything in awhile. I have been so busy with everyday stuff, I haven't really had a chance to sit down and do much card making. I did make myself sit at my desk and make these 2 cards yesterday. It felt so nice to be creative!

The first card is #7 (trifold) in the booklet. I have found out a little secret when making this card. When I make these cards, I always press fit to page and then cut out my envelope first. Well, you can't do that when the card is a tri-fold. The tri-fold cards are bigger than the envelopes so if you do fit to page, whenever you are making a tri-fold card, cut the card out first. Everything for this card was cut at 5 1/4". I used a little dollar stamp from Michaels for the front of my card.

The second card is #8 (Oval) in the booklet. This card is just so dainty and pretty. I really like it. I cut out everything from the wild card cartridge at 6 1/4" and the butterfly was cut from Indie Art at 2". If your booklet is anything like mine, some of the images for this card are missing in the booklet. They are there though and when you press the buttons they will show up on your expression screen or you can check out the digital booklet on the cricut website.

Supplies Used:

Crayola Colored Pencils--To color the owl stamp image
Studio G Stamp--Owl
White Signo Pen--faux stitching and the owl's eyes
Stampin Up--Dimensionals (used on both cards)
Stampin Up--Chocolate Chip Classic Ink
DCWV--Pocket full of Posies Patterned Paper (oval card)
Stickles--Diamond and Grape (oval Card)
Cuttlebug--Swiss dots (butterfly)

Your cards are great! I love that oval card, I have never been really great at shaped cards, but yours is awesome! Love the owl and the tree in your fist card as well! Super talented!!
