Exploring Cricut - Happy 60th!

Hi there! It is my turn to share with you today at Exploring Cricut. My parents will be celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary on the 13th and I created this anniversary card for them. I thought I would share it with you today.

Do you ever have a piece of paper that you really like and think that you can't wait to use it and then for whatever reason you don't. Well this cute pattern paper with the birds from Basic Grey was that paper for me. I think the birds on this are so sweet. I thought I would definitely use this right away. Well, after a few years I'm happy to say it is perfect for an anniversary. I hope you think so too:)


I adhered the ribbon to the paper using large glue dots and popped the pink heart up with a pop dot. The gold mat was under the "monogram tag 2". It always amazes me how many different options are still on the Cricut cartridges that I haven't used. It is really nice to have all the versatility.

Recipe:
A2 card base
Pattern papers - Basic Grey
Blue Heart - George and Basic Shapes 1.16"
Pink Heart - Lyrical Letters 1.16"
Gold Frame - Gypsy Font 2.5"
Ribbon, corner rounder, glue dots, pop dot

Don't forget to get in on the challenge ending this Saturday and thanks for stopping by!

It IS very cool paper and I like the hearts! I find it's more that I can't bear to cut into some special papers that I really like, and then I end up not using them. Congrats to your folks-60 years is an amazing milestone!
