Share with us your favorite Cricut card for your chance to win a Cuttlebug Machine! To help inspire you and get your creative juices flowing our design team member, Roree Rumph, has a beautiful notecard set to share with you today.
Hi everyone! Roree here. World Card Making Day is tomorrow Saturday, October 1st, and it is the perfect excuse to take some time for yourself to make some cards. I created a notecard set in honor of this day. The set would be very easy to re-create for yourself or to give to a friend as a gift.
I was feeling in a Fall-kind-of mood, so that is the direction I went in. I created a set of monogram cards in a Autumn color scheme. I used the Formal Occasions cartridge to create the scalloped frame, the Doodletype cartridge for the letter and the heart shape, and the Doodlecharms cartridge for the leaf shapes.
Even though I kept the design the same on all of the cards, I used different patterned papers to give each card a unique feel. But since the patterns are coordinating, the cards still feel like they are part of a set.
To give the set to a friend as a gift, you can tie them together with some ribbon and add a small tag with a sentiment or personal note.
Thanks so much for letting me share my project with you all today. Enjoy!
