Flamingo Card with Cricut Nifty Fifties Cartridge PLUS Giveaway!

Love this flamingo from the new Cricut Nifty Fifties Cartridge (available in October)!  I made this 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card using the flamingo cut mounted on some white paper run through the Cuttlebug using the new Art Deco folders.  I am loving those folders - so elegant.

Of course, I had to cuttlebug the blue background with the Swiss Dots folder (a MUST HAVE!).

Paper is by American Crafts and Core'dinations.  Stamp by Heidi Grace.  Buttons by Papertrey Ink.

Check out all the goodness on this Nifty Fifties Cricut cartridge!

There is also a shadowed font on here that will look great welded!

  9. I'm loving the cake carts. I wasn't interested them at first because it's a rare occasion that I do cakes but I see that you can use them for more than just the cakse. I actually like any cart I can get my hands on, trying to build my library so my creating possibilities are endless.
