It's the third Wednesday of March already which means it's time for the Facebook chapter of the Design D.I.V.A.S. to have our Oldies But Goodies (OBD) Blog Hops. This is when we use neglected and forgotten items from our stashes. The Design D.I.V.A.S. is a private Facebook group, which is a branch of the Original Design D.I.V.A.S. on the Splitcoaststampers website. The acronym for the D.I.V.A.S is, Divine, Inspirational, Virtuous, Artistic (or annointed) Sistahs. This is a very talented and supportive group, which I'm blessed to be a part of. Thank you for stopping by and we hope you enjoy the hop! If you came here from our awesome Sistah Sue at Sue's Sentiments then you are on the right track. She kicked off this hop for us, and is always a tough act to follow, but I will give it a try!
I bought my Cricut way back when they first came on the market. As much as I love it, the Cricut is probably the most neglected tool in my arsenal. I think the last time I used it was to cut out letters for posters for my son's wedding back in July! But since then I have acquired cartridges that I think will get much more use, especially for cards. So, my Oldie But Goodie this month is my Cricut.
In a major diversion from my usual stamped-Copic-colored-embellishment-laden-multi-layered projects, I made these two notecard and tag sets using the Damask Decor cartridge which is full of beautiful designs perfect for cards like these. They were so easy!
The cartridge includes patterns for envelopes for the cards, which measure 4" x 6", and the package says this can be used by all Cricuts. However, my little ancient Cricut takes paper only 6" wide and I couldn't make the envelopes. I think there might be an upgrade in my future!
Now it's time to hop on over to our lovely Sistah Heather's at Heather's Coffee Break for a cuppa and a whole lot of inspiration. Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy the hop!
