Cartridge Toss-Up with Straight From The Nest part 2

Happy Thursday! So sorry for posting this so late. I have been having a slow kinda day around here. :)

For today's card, I wanted to make a simple but elegant card to have on hand for whatever occasion. Whether it be a birthday, thank you or just because. I was inspired by some little die-cut note cards in the SU idea book, and decided to see if I could make my own. Here is my card:

I took two rectangles from George and welded them together in my gypsy for my card base. I then took the medallion and sized it at 3" and welded that into the front of my card. Voila! Easy Peasy! I cut it out with my cricut and lined the inside of the card with some Pink Pirouette cardstock, added a scallop trim, a bow and a little rhinestone to the center and my card was complete. Quick and easy but so pretty at the same time. Gotta love that! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog today. I hope you have a great crafty day!

Cricut--George and Basic Shapes & Straight From The Nest
Cardstock--White (PTI) & Pink Pirouette (SU!)
Punch--Scallop Sentiment (Fiskars)

  4. This is so elegant Stacey! I keep saying I want to do clean and simple, but never do. This card is perfect. I may try my hand at this one!

  5. Love this idea Stacey but when I tried it I did not get the same results you did-it cut the whole medallion shape out so now I have a hole in the front of my card. :-( Have some questions for you if you could please email me at
    I would greatly appreciate it!

  6. Super cute ! love that lace !

    Have a great Wednesday...
