Catching Up with Cards

The Cricut Lyrical Letters cartridge is one of my all time favorites, but it's a difficult cartride to use for smaller embellishments. However, CutMates paper is made to use in die-cutting machines. Megan Elizabeth from Above Rubies and Club Ruby Designers (which is why I was sent some to play with) has a line called Paper Layerz printed on CutMates that has one 12 x 12 color and on the other side, 9 4 x 4 co-ordinating colors which makes it easy peasy to cut layers without digging for scraps. So I can make embellishments for A2 cards without having to use my craft knife to clean it up.

Another A2 card embellished with the Lyrical Letters cartridge. Paper Layerz for the embellishment, mats from stash. Glittered. Twenty minutes to make the card, another twenty to clean up the glitter lol.

Pagoda cartridge. Card bases all made with Stampers Select white Papertrey Ink cardstock. Now I just have to write messages in them and get them out in the mail. Bonus for me today, I got an envelope addressed to "Current Resident", no return address. Turns out it was a letter from my daughter, she got me lol.

The panda looks a lot better in this shot than in the one from WOYWW. I really like these letters and of course I like your Cricut.
