The other really cool thing is that Provocraft finally released an update for the Cricut Mini so I can now use it with my gypsy!!!
My little bitty bug will start to travel now- yeah!!
I discovered a "new to me" folded step card over at Stars & Stripes-OWH. So I was inspired to give it a try. I did two different version of a very similar design. ( I couldn't decide which cute bug I wanted to use.)
What a cool and quick way to make a different style card. I love how it stands up so nice. Start with a simple 4.25" x 11" sheet of paper, a few score lines and cuts later you have a great step card. Here is a great tutorial of how to do it- click here.
So along with trying a new fold for this card, I also pulled out my embossing powered for the sentiment. I don't seem to do this a lot, mainly because it does take a bit more time but I do like the end result. Plus, stamping with white ink just never stays totally white once stamp on card stock. at least none that I have used.
Emma over at My Creative Time is a Buggy Challenge also going on now. Being this is the home of "BugBites" I can't very well pass up this challenge. Thus the little bugs.One of my favorite monthly blog hops, the MPS Pinkalicious Blog Hop is going on too. I did link up one project already, but that challenge really is what helped me to finish up these two cards so I am going to link up this project as well.
Finally, Queen of my Craftroom has a Valentine's Day card challenge that I am going to link up to as well.
Now I need to get back to making the last few cards so I can get them in the mail tomorrow. Hope you all are finding time to craft today!
