Cricut Tuesday with Michelle

Hello and Happy Tuesday!

I hope everyone had a wonderful, memorable Christmas and that Santa brought you new scrappin' goodies to play with! With alot of the Christmas crafting out of the way; let's get back to just havin' fun (not that making Christmas crafts is not fun or anything...).

Here's a quick project to make using the Wild Card cartridge. This card was created from a special request I received a couple of weeks ago and you know who you are ;) So here is the Owl Card located on page 72 and everything was cut at 5-1/4". The best part of this cartridge is all the die-cuts coordinate with the main images (the card and envelope). This includes layers, icon, frames, liners and phrases plus so much more.

Here are a few tips I learned along the way when using this cartridge:
  1. Use cardstock the blackout creative feature to create your card base only.
  2. Use patterned paper as layering piece over top the above die-cut using the standard cut image.
  3. Do not change the size dial after you've created your envelope. This includes cutting the phrases, icons and layers.
  4. For quick assembly, use a paper collection already coordinated for you and/or scraps.
  5. Add other embellishments and/or stamps to your card or envelope to add interest like I've done here with my envelope (I used a bird & cherry imaged stamps).
I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy Cricut Tuesday edition! I'll see you in the New Year - All the Best in 2010!

Cheers & Happy Crafting ~Michelle


  1. Great Card Michelle. I love to use my Cricut, but I find I'm useing it more for Circles,scallops and squares.Instead of what the cartiridges were made for. You've given some very helpful tips.

  2. great card Michelle, I have made the owl a few times, I actually made the house last nite for a little welcome to the neighborhood card, this is one of my favourite carts for sure...
