One card, two looks


I have two more cards today from the Cricut Creative Cards cartridge, both the same design with two very different looks.
 This patriotic card was cut at 5", all layers.  I love a patriotic card!  The stamp sentiment is from My Creative Time's My Little Firecracker Stamp set (see photo below):

And now this second card was cut at 4.33" to accomodate the size background paper I had left.  
 The pink is way cuter in real life but it's a different take on the card.  Ok, true confession here:  I wasn't sure I liked the first card so I made this one also.  Then, I wasn't sure I liked this one either.  Then, I decided to put them both up and hope for the best.

I loved this cartridge so much that I am having a Cricut Creative Cards giveaway, sponsored by Provo Craft.

Here's a quick peek at what's on the Creative Cards Cartridge:

  79. I am already a subscriber of your blog! I love your patriotic card! I can't quite tell by your screen shot what card I would like best, but it looks like there are two "window" cards, which I think are so super cool, but have never created! Maybe this cart win would get me on the rode to creating one of those cards!!

  96. I like several of the cards, but the one with the window or the doily might be my favorite. I had a chance to get this at Michaels the other day, but passed because I didn't think I would use it that much, but I'm seeing a lot of ways it could be used for other things besides cards.
