One more card - and a surprise!
Here is one more quick and easy card. I made this with another image from the page in the Debbie Mumm Nursery Rhymes stack that I used for the cards I posted yesterday.
I used just the border punch from the Martha Stewart "Double Loop" Punch Around the Page set.
I cut a piece of pink glitter cardstock from the DCWV Spring mat stack from a year ago at 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 and punched two opposite sides, taking care to center the punch on each side. I trimmed a tiny bit from the final piece to fit the card front perfectly.
For the finishing touch, I added a flower from the Easter Kit from Creative Charms. That one little flower just finishes off this simple card nicely.
I noticed some new cartridges listed on the Custom Crops site tonight. This is the first I have heard about these cartridges. They are available for pre-order and estimated to be in stock 6-4-2010 according to the Custom Crops site. I saved the images to show you here - for more information visit Custom Crops at this LINK.
The first cartridge is called "Cindy Loo"
There are lots of flourishes and flowers and some lovely lace images. There are also two beautiful cupcake wrappers that are very ornate (and, of course, an owl!).
On the image of the box you can see that there is a font with a cute eyelet cutout. There also seems to be a frame option.
The next cartridge is called "Freshly Picked"
This one has gardening images and garden gnomes - love those! There are also some nice garden tools.
From the box, it appears that there is a sign function and a card and frame.
The third cartridge is called "Mini Monsters"
The images are "Halloween" type images but many of them could be used for other purposes.
On the box you can see lots of layering pieces and what appears to be a shaped card option.
The last cartridge is called "Wall Decor and More"
This cartridge has images with decorative swirls inside the shape. These have appeared on several cartridges lately. They are pretty but may be a bit too "trendy" and looked dated in a few years. However, the shadow versions of the images will continue to work and there is quite an unusual assortment.
From the box, you can see that there are several font choices, borders and a card that might possibly be a pop-up (it is hard to tell from the tiny image). There also seems to be a word art option that looks interesting.
OK - now it is time to redo the wish list! Which cartridge do you like the best?
