This is a anniversary card which I made for my parents wedding anniversary last week.
I took a 10 x 5 inch piece on Centura pearl card and scored and folded it. I then took a 5 x 5 piece and cut the heart outline from it on my Cricut explore and also got it to write the sentiment. I stuck this to the card front . Next I cut the heart with all the detail from glitter card (the heart was from the Valentine's Day cartridge) I then put the heart in the gap I had cut.
I love how simple but pretty this card is
I got a text from my sister a few weeks ago asking if I could make a card for her friends little boy who was going to be 3. She said he loved Mickey Mouse and cars, so I thought I'd make him a Mickey Mouse card using my Mickey Mouse Cricut cartridge. I print and cut Mickey out (I love how it cuts his tail so perfectly) and then used the slice feature to cut a 3 out of a Mickey head shape. The letters are out of Mickey font. I then layers on Basill basics card stock.
I made this card last month and forgot to post it on here. I made it for my Dads birthday using one sheet of red card, Cricut Vinyl and acetate.
The iron man and Tony Stark image was found on Pinterest and I used my Cricut Explore to cut it.
I loved how it turned out. Due to the curved acetate front I made a box for it with my Crafters Companion Big Score.

My sister asked me to make a card for her boyfriends birthday and he loves pool and I knew I had a pool topper somewhere so I raised my stash. I found the topper in a set for men from Kanban but wasn't sure what to do with it as it looked a bit plain just on a plain background. I found a pool ball on the Cricut Explore design space but it had an 8 in it but I wanted a few different ones so I made my own pool balls. To do this I made circles 1 inch wide and then cut out a 1/2 inch circle out the middle. I then made another circle of 1 inch and put a number in the middle. Once cut and stuck together they made perfect pool balls which I stuck round the card as a boarder/background.
I'm really happy how it turned out.
It was our friends wedding yesterday and I had so many ideas for their card but in the end decided to make a clean and simple personalised card with my Cricut Explore.
I'm very happy with how it turned out plus it matched the bridesmaid colours which was pretty cool.
