19 years! I cannot believe it! We have been married 19 years today. I made my very wonderful husband a card (and tickets to a concert) to celebrate. Tonight, instead of a romantic dinner, we are going to a local Mexican restaurant for a Boy Scout's Eagle project fundraiser and taking our son to baseball practice - ah, family life! Sweet!
I used the new Every Day Pop-Up Cards and Calligraphy Collection for the flourishy heart on the top. My paper is My Mind's Eye, Laundry Collection.
I gotta say the pop-up cards are hard to use. I used a website on Box.net which has photos of how to fold and glue most of the pop-ups. Unfortunately, not this one. It seemed so easy until I had to glue it down. I made a quick one from plain white cardstock and played with it until it worked! Strange that Cricut didn't have a better booklet with this cartridge.
|I cut the heart out twice from the Calligraphy Collection cartridge.|
|A little ribbon tied all the way around the card and under part of the open heart.|
|My Mind's Eye packet also came with rub-on lettering.|
|The pop-up! I used a scrap piece of brown card stock behind the lettering so you could read it more easily.|
Thanks for looking!
