Quick Cards

Cricut has some AMAZING cuts in its image library.  Seems there is a cute monster, baby, princess, apple, boat, car, chair...anything you can think of!  They did a great job coming up with an image for everything!!

Of course I always seem to forget about all the great phrases they have too.   Unfortunately it's not something you will find on the back of the box, its a BONUS once you have purchased and flip through the handbook.

I recently bought some new paper {AC Backyard} and in this pack was a bright watermelon filled page.  I could even smell the summer air when I saw this {too bad there is snow on the ground!}  This was a super quick, easy card....all thanks to PC!

This is a A2 card
I used TCP and Cor'dinations papers for the card base and mats.
I mimicked the layers on the watermelon to use on my card (green, yellow, white, pink)
At the top of the card I used some dark brown and white with a Fiskars scallop punch, layering them up.
Wrapped bakers twine for some texture
I hand cut out two of the watermelons from the AC papers to use as my embellishment. 
Phrase is cut from "Just Because" Cards at {4"}

Take a look at your carts, you might be missing some really great phrases that you can quickly cut
and add to any card!!
