Cricut Creative Cards

Provocraft recently released a new cartridge called Creative Cards. I really liked the window cut on the cartridge. It reminded me of a Memory Box die that is available for purchase. Anyway, I picked up the cartridge when it was on sale at Michaels. And I made the window card on Sunday at the crafty playdate.

It's not easy to tell, but this is a trifold card, which is kind of neat. I cut and layered the pieces just as shown in the photos. I'd like to make it again and add a little more detail.

I was also struck by this cut. I really liked the scalloped edge and that flower is very appealing. 
I used papers from DCWV's Green Tea stack from a couple of years ago. Instead of the white cut to go across the card, I decided to use some ribbon. 
This card I modified a little. The blue piece is supposed to be a flap that opens up, but I cut it and adhered it down. I also trimmed the background piece so the white card base would show. 
Again this is DCWV's Green Tea stack as well as an older CTMH birthday stamp set. I added some green gems as well. 

I like that the cuts aren't too intricate and will be fun to play with and add details. 

The sun shone brightly all day today and it warmed up to the 30s. Let the warm up and melt off begin. 
Until the next storm, slated to arrive on Monday. 

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day.

These are all gorgeous. I love the window cut on the first card and the colors you used on the last two.

It was nice to see the sun today.

Your cards are amazing. I especially love the flowered one and I love that you use special embellishments that aren't paper. :) Thanks for sharing. Isn't spring tricky this year? Have a great weekend.

Love and Hugs, Tamara
