My First Cricut Card

Well, I finally did it. After months of having my Cricut sitting in the box, I finally took it out & decided to try it out. I’m embarrassed to admit that I have a “Die Cut Machine” phobia. I don’t know why I am so terrified of using them for the first time. Not only has my Cricut spent months in the box, the same thing happened with my Cuttlebug, Wizard & my Sizzix. Once I get over the initial fear of playing with them for the first time, I’m ok.

For my first Cricut card I decided to start out easy. I saw this cute card on a blog (unfortunately I can’t remember who’s blog it was) that had a teapot & cups along with this cute verse. (if this is your’s let me know & I’ll give you credit) The Teapot & Tea cups are off the “Everyday Paper Dolls” cartridge & can be found on page 43.

I created another Twisted Easel card for this and also used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder & my Stampin Up Eyelet Border punch. I also added some blue buttons to help hold the card open. The background paper is from a pack I bought a long time ago.

Have a great day! TFL!
