You should have come from

For my first project this month, I decided to make a project directly from the book, using the "Just Because Cards" Cricut Cartridge.  I had ourchased this adorable paper from my LSS, it is from Best Creation Inc. "Robot" line.  When I saw this paper, I knew the exact cut I wanted to use!! 

The card base, label, and space ship were all cut from page 33,  the card base was cut at 8".  I had orginally cut the label at 8" as well, but I thought it was too big, and wanted you be able to see the wonderful paper, so I cut a smaller one, unfortunately, I did not save the resized image.  The spaceship was cut at 8" as well.  The sentiment was a sticker from the same paper line.  I mounted it on a piece of orange glitter cardstock and cut around it to make a shadow layer.  I used a few different cuttlebug folders, and finished it off with some twine.

For my second project, I used 3 cartridges.  Blackletter, Beyond Birthdays and Celebrate with Flourish.

The base of the card was cut from Beyond Birthdays at 7.31"h.
The frame and banner were cut from Blackletter.
The frame was cut t 6.10" and the banner at 1.31"

The flower in the vase is from Celebrate with Flourish.
All the layers were cut at 3"h
All the paper is from the"Perfect Day" paper pack from Close to My Heart.

I embossed the sentiment (very messy!!) with Copper Zing Glitter Embossing Powder.
I distressed everything with Antique Linen and Iced Spruce Distress Ink.
The ribbon is from My Craft Spot.  I did not have the right color, so I inked
some Vintage Vanilla with the Iced Spruce Distress Ink.
I finished it off with some Stickles in Xmas Red and Crystal.
