Would You Ever Guess Wednesday

Today is Would You Every Guess Wednesday over at My Cricut Craft Room
My Cricut Craft Room
We could use the feature keys on a cartridge, make a cake project with a regular cartridge, or use a regular cartridge to make a cake creation. We also had the option to use the Icon Feature Key. So there are 5 different ways that we could have made our projects today.  Now I had signed up to use the Feature key, but I misunderstood that I was supposed to use the Icon Feature key!!  I thought I could use any feature key.  Oh well, I will get the hang of this sooner or later!  Anyway, here is my project:

For this card I used the Beyond Birthdays and George and Basic Shapes cartridge.  It was a fairly simple card to make, but I had the hardest time cutting the center part with the word love.  I had to cut it 3 times because the paper kept tearing!!  UGGGG!!  And I was using one of my favorite Close to My Heart paper packs "Sillouette". 

Anyway, I finally got it cut out, and assembled the card.  I used the framed feature on the Beyond Birthdays cartridge.  This image is on the bottom row. 3rd from the left.  I cut the same image several times, each layer I hid certain cuts using my gypsy.  For the card base, I welded two of the ovals with a small little rectangle from George.  All the oval images were cut at 6" W, and the rectangle was cut at .56" H.

Here are a couple of pictures that show the images on my gypsy screen before and after welding together and then a pic of all images cut on the mat.  I added a piece of red glitter cardstock to the back of the center image, so that the red glitter would show through the word LOVE.

I inked the whole think up with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tea Dye, added some Scarlett Red Crinkle Ribbon from My Craft Spot, and then I added some little red glitter dots from Stampendus.
