A Happy Hello

It's summer and I love using lots of bright, happy colors in the cards I mail during the summer. I also love to mix my Cricut Cartridges and Spellbinders dies for some fun effects.

I used the Just Because Cartridge which is full of assorted shaped cards.

To create all the elements of this card, use the 8th button on the 4th row.
To create the card base, cut green cardstock at 7 1/2". This results in a 4 1/2" x 7 1/2" card.
Using the Scor-Pal, score and then fold on the score lines.
To create the next layers -
Cut top most card layer (Fruity paper) use shift + card at 7 1/2". Ink edges with brown ink.
Cut the next layer (black cardstock) using shift + card at 7 3/4".
Cut the next layer (dotted paper) using shift + card at 8". Ink edges with brown ink.

Assemble the 3 layers together and tie a white ribbon around the center. Then add some coordinating twine to the knot.

Using Spellbinders dies, die cut 3 layers from white cardstock, red pattern paper, and black cardstock to create the base for the sentiment. Adhere the layers together and add to the card with foam adhesives. This creates some nice additional dimension to the card.

Stamp the sentiment in black ink on white cardstock and cut the sentiment apart. This is a great way to use a longer sentiment that may be too big for a card. Ink the edges of each piece and adhere to black cardstock.
Add the sentiment to the die cuts.
