First Cricut Expression Card

Here is my first card made with the Cricut Expression.




Not Perfect by any means but Im proud of it. I apologize for the shadows, I scanned it in with my scanner, it looked better than taking a picture but it lost some of the glitter luster if you know what I mean.

For fun I did this one for the Cooking with Cricut - Challenge #12 GLITTERMANIA.

I used Make the Cut and created the card from scratch, from the MTC Gallery. I haven't figured out how to attach files here but when I do, I'll put the MTC file in this post.

I printed Make a wish on the paper before I cut it out with the Cricut.

The paper I've had for a while probably got from Michaels or AC Moore

The ribbon is Happy Birthday by Bobbin Ribbon

The flower is made from 2 Prima Calypso Tin flowers.

Hope you Enjoy!
