I had a hard time getting the layers right on this one...but I now have a Martha Stewart score board so I will have to give it another go sometime. I don't know how super models do it, but my photos never do my projects justice. :() It's hard to see but the card's background has a nice shinny swirly texture to it.

This svg, cut in the cricut, was so intricate that it took a long time to cut. But worth it I think. And it really lessened the need for a lot of embellishments. But there are some....little heart gems in the corners, a ceramic rose in the center and a hand written sentiment.
This one was made for a guy friend. I used Tall trees and birthday stamps, white and yellow ribbon, blue gems and lots of Tim Holtz - Broken China distress ink frames white the paper of the stamped images and of course lots of sparkle. The card itself was already blue.

I had put out a call for help one day when I needed Wedding designs for a friends wedding. A cart I didn't have. A sweet lady, Fran from Arizona (bless her), snail mailed me this cricut cutout of this (and many others) couple on brazil paper. What I hadn't used for the wedding stuff, was used for their 1st Anniversay card. Even the ribbon is a left over from her wedding. The flowers and leaves also cut with the cricut, an embossed background, heat embossed "congrats" and a metal "Love" completed the easel card.
