I'm wild about my Wild Card Cartridge....

I love this card.  The colors and everything came together. Very simple and good for any occasion.  I don't know yet if I'll put a sentiment. It's a card I'll label "general purpose" as I don't know yet what I'll use it for.

This card is found on the Wild Card Cart.  It's a bit frustrating for those of us who have a Cricut Create to use the Just Because and Wild Card Cart. If you want to use the corresponding envelope, your card is going to be small as your mat is only 12x6.  One day, I'll have a Cricut Expression... and smaller thighs.
(haha- kidding, sort of.... well, ok. Not really.  I am happy with my body.... really-- well, for the most part.  Hmm, uh- let's just move on to another subject).

So, I made this card as big as I could but making sure it could at least fit into an A2 size envelope.

You can't see it, but I used textured Bazzill paper (textured with lines) on the trunk and the leaves.

I just wanted to say thank you to Kelly, Jeni, Cheryl, Tammy, Marlene and all of you who post such nice comments on my cards. I know you are all  super busy making cards and projects daily and it just is nice to come home to such nice comments.
2011: I hope to create a style of my own.  I'm sure you can see your influence in all of my cards.  I know, I'm a copy cat.  But one day-- I'll have my own style and it's all from your influence.  SO, thank you.
For those of you who own Cricuts but actually use Copics and PrismaColor Pencils,   I have one thing to say:  I wish I had your talent to forego the Cricut and use my artistic nature to create such lovely cards. 


  1. Well, well, well...aren't we getting all fancy with the folds now?! This is gorgeous!

    Sheesh woman, how do you do it? Work all day and then make some fantastic cards, to boot?

    I'm SUCH a slacker.

  2. I wish I played with my Cricut more often. Love this simply beautiful tree card. You are right, great for so many occasions. ~jeni :)

  3. Well done! Another beautiful card! TFS http://monicalott.blogspot.com/

  4. I'm in the same group with Marlene, slacker! But we both know Marlene's not a slacker.

    Wonderful card, I love the triple-fold and thanks so much for your kind words.

    Simple yet elegant. Love the trif-fold idea, great for adding pictures from any event.
