Strawberry Friends

Hi all, back with another project!  This one was made with my new toy!!!!  I finally broke down and got a Cricut Expression!!  I have been putting it off and when I got a REALLY good deal on one and saw the new software Design Studio and such that allow you to manipulate the images to cut in a variety of ways, well, I got it!!!  I have been playing with it and watching video tutorials on the ins and outs of how it works.  So, here is a card that I made with the Wild Card cartridge and Fred She Said's luscious digi pre-colored Emma and Strawberries. 

It is the Doily Card and is cut from the blackout option and then the actual card was cut from DP for the layers inside and out.  There are scalloped Nesties in black, metallic red and white embossed with the Bubble Cuttlebug folder.  You can't see it well because they are mostly covered up, but there are gold dots and inking on the scalloped layers.

These vibrant pre-colored digi strawberries were printed out on matt photo paper several times and cut out and layered at different levels for dimension.  I then highlighted the strawberries seeds with Crystal Effects and dusted lightly with extra fine holo glitter. I added the Just Rite Friends stamp in red ink embossed with clear embossing powered. A Cricut cut butterfly sits atop a red bow.  The inside is decorated with another set of strawberries that have their seeds glittered in a light gold.  I am having fun playing with my Cricut and you will see more of it in my cards and projects!  If you want the Emma and Strawberries design click here and you can see all of the wonderful pre-colored images!

Also, I have been playing with my Everyday Paper Doll cartridge and made my nursing student daughter a paper doll of herself.  She attends Stephen F. Austin University and their colors are purple and white, so her scrubs are purple.  I put a magnet on the back so she could put it on the fridge.

Back tomorrow with more cards!! Until then,

Sonya, thanks for the wonderfully encouraging comments!!
