Exploring Cricut Challenge - Cricut Choice

Hello Friends! Time for another challenge at Exploring Cricut. This week it is "Cricut Choice". You are to create a card, layout or paper craft using any Cricut of your choice. It must include the color blue, 2 images and at least 1 pattern paper. Please head over to Exploring Cricut and take a quick survey for us. As you know, Cricut has come out with a new machine and we are wondering how you feel about it. With the Cricut changes comes new ways to craft and we would love to hear what your thoughts are. The survey will be up until Saturday. Thank you!!

I decided to create a card for the challenge using Doodlecharms. I have always liked the chunky images on this cartridge. They are so easy to work with. 


I attached vellum over my jar so that the stars would be more visible. There was not a separate jar lid for this particular image. However, not a problem. You can take the image and have the part you do not wish to cut hang off of the mat on the screen with either CCR or Gypsy. The lid was then edged in black ink. You can also cut the entire image out and then use only the portion you need for your project by cutting as needed. I also popped the sentiment up with pop dots.

Recipe:
A2 card base
Papers - Stash
Jar, Lid - Doodlecharms 2"
Stars - Doodlecharms 1.5"
Sentiment - Joy's Life Stamps
Blue and Gold Ribbon, pop dots, black ink

Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see your project this week and hear your thoughts on survey:)
