Happily Ever After

My last visit at Joann's was great.  It's been a while since I felt like a kid in a candy store.  They now have most of the latest Cricut cartridges, EK Success punches, a whole line of Tim Holtz products and a good bunch of Spellbinders dies.  It was really nice to actually touch them, compared to seeing them in photos and videos on the internet. 

Every after band practice, I would stop by Joann's to see what's new.  And I always look for tools that I've been itching to have.  One of them is the Damask Decor cartridge.  I was really happy when I saw it displayed behind the counter.  And most of all, it was on sale.

That night, I enjoyed going through each page of the booklet.  My mind was racing as to what kind of projects I can make.  But as usual, I started with a card.  Thanks to the Gypsy, I'm able to size my card to A2 size with the Damask4 Card as my card front on page 23.

And this is how my card turned out to be:

I added dotted lines using black Spica glitter pen for final touches.  Since I used double sided cardstock for my base, I decided to put another piece of cardstock inside, cut with a matching Spellbinders die and inked with Stampin' Up Going Gray.

Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  K&Co., Bazzil, Wassau, leftovers
image/sentiment:  Verve
ink:  Tsukineko, Stampin' Up, Spica
tools:  Cricut Expressions, Damask Decor cartridge, Spellbinders, Stampin' Up punch
adhesive:  Scotch, mounting tape

And because I was using my Cricut, I was able to make two cards of the same design.  Fun!

By the way, I just made a photo compilation of all my projects during the month of July.  You can see it by clicking here.
