Would You Ever Guess Wednesday - Use the Card Feature

Happy Wednesday all my Crafty Friends!!
Today is

For this week we were asked to use the
CARD feature from any cartridge.
There are so many cartridges that
have some really great cards.
My favorite is the Art Philosophy Cartridge.
I use this cartridge all the time.
But for this week, I wanted to try using another
cartridges card feature.  I started searching for
cartridges with a card feature using my gypsy.
There were so many that I could not decide,
so I decided to make two cards this week.

This first card is kind of plain, but it is
a father's day card so that will work!!
Here is a sneak peak.

For this card I used the Wrap It Up cartridge.
You can find this image on page 60.
Sorry, but I cannot recall what size I cut it at.
I embossed the card with a striped Cuttlebug folder
and then inked with with Brushed Courderoy Distress Ink.
The pattern paper is from DCWV Neutrals Pack.
I added some copper tinsel string and the tag and
sentiment are from My Creative Time's Teeny Tiny Tags.

This next card was cut from the Zooballoo cartridge.
I cut the card shift image from page 126 at 5"

  I cut the little elegphant from 127
main shift image at 2.5"
I embossed the elephant with the
swiss dots embossing folder.

The happy birthday is from page 127 cut at 1"
I added some stickles and some glitter tulle.
I also added some faux stiching with a glitter
gel pen, which I also used to outline
the sentiment.
The paper is from the DCWV Animal Crackers Pack.

Thanks for stopping by, and please make sure
you see the other wonderful projects from my
design team sisters at My Cricut Craft Room.
