Teacup Card

This was a fun card to create. I used the Cricut Cartridge A Child's Year - cut at 5 1/2". (page 57)
    Paper used to make the card: well, I am not sure since I torn out my papers from packages, but I would guessDCWV since I purchase stacks of this brand of paper/card-stock. I like their selections.
    The brown and gold square papers are from the Paper Company.
    The brown and gold papers were cut with my paper cutter and I rounded them using the corner rounder.
    The white sentiment card-stock was purchased at Sam's Club and stamped using Powder Puff Chocolate Mocha ink. (Once again, I threw away the brand-names packages of many of my clear stamps so that I could store my stamps in CD cases. I am new to blogging and entering card contests so now I know to keep track of all brand-name supplies to share with viewers of my blog.). The square was mounted on the card with 3-D pop dots - Forever in Time.
    The ribbon is from a Christmas clearance sale at Joann's last year: Raffia Ribbon - 100% rayon.
    I love this little dragon fly cut at 2 inches using the Doodle Charms Cartridge page 93. I used glitter card-stock for the wings and black card-stock for the body - it is mounted with 3-D pop dots - Forever in Time.
This is a sweet card that can be used for many occasions. I love my Cricut!
