Fabulous Fall Blog Hop ~ Day 3

Welcome Back for Day 3 of our Fabulous Fall Blog Hop. I would like to say "Thank You" to each and every one for either returning or becoming a new follower. I hope that you have seen a project or two that you have enjoyed or found one to try on your own.

Autumn Has Arrived
I must say that I do not typically use the card feature on any of the Cricut cartridges because I like to create my own designs, but I thought I would try this one time. I used the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge and selected the Tree on p. 47 since it went with this leaf paper I bought a couple weeks ago while Joann's had it on sale for 5 pieces for $1.00.

I have to say...I like it! You must definitely add some pizzazz to personalize the cut-out, but the feature has lots of potential. Who knew? I will reconsider using some of the other cards too.

This card was cut on 12 X 12 paper ~ fit to size which was 5 1/2". Autumn was cut at 3" from the same cartridge ~ p. 42. I added orange gems in the corners and brown ribbon around the trunk. 
Inside of the card has two pieces of layered papers and leaves in each corner.

Another goodie is being added today...remember to leave a comment each day for the greatest chance of winning. The winner will be announced Monday, November 8th. 

Be sure to hop on over to Star for the next Fall project.

Stay Creative,
Georgiana  : )

  5. That's a beautiful card - I love the tree being cut out of the center; great effect! Your cards are all so unique; you might actually be the first person to get me interested in making cards!
