Wild Card valentine

Happy Valentine's Day!   We are going to an orchestra concert tonight that Son#1 is performing in, so it will not be very romantic, but that's life with kids!  At least my honey will get this card.

This is my first time trying out Wild Card.  I've had this cartridge for awhile but was somewhat puzzled by figuring out the sizing, so I never used it.  This my first time trying to make an envelope with the cricut too and it is SO pretty with it's scalloped edge!  I cut the envelope liner out also, and it looks very cool with big polka dots!  The heart with the arrow and the sentiment inside are also in the Wild Card handbook, although on other pages.

So you can see the polka dot envelope liner:

Wild Card-all cuts
Paper- prints are from DCWV All Seasons stack, solid red CTMH

This cartridge is a little tricky on the sizing and figuring out what pieces go where.  I cut the envelope first, using fit to page, which gave me a 5 inch size, so that's what I used for the card and all it's parts.

I'm going to link this to the Celebrate the Occasion valentine challenge this week.

  2. Wild Card was one of the very first carts I got 2+ years ago, and I wasn't getting it either, at least not the card part of it. And yet it has so many great cards and shape cards in it! Your card and envelope turned out great. Another nice thing with this cart, making envelopes! I wanted to thank you for your comment on my Love Shack card! You made me laugh as I, too, couldn't stop singing that song the whole time I was making my card! I'm a new follower.

  3. Fantastic project! Love the papers you used. Thank you for joining us at the Celebrate the Occasion challenge and hope to see you back again.
