Easy Peasy Cards

Happy Wednesday! I still haven't started my Christmas cards yet. Nothing like procrastinating, right? I do have some cards to share and they aren't Christmas cards! I actually made these for a friend for Christmas. I saw this card and decided I could do this!

I designed them on my Gypsy and cut them out with the Cricut. I can cut four out at a time and since I saved the file, I can make more or just change the image I want to cut and make new ones. Just make sure you pick a element that makes a good negative image when cut. I might experiment with using some phrases from Cricut cartridges and replacing the blade with markers instead of stamping a sentiment.

Supplies used: 

cards stock from my stash,
DP - Provo Craft
 Stamps - Stampin' Up!, Inkadinkado
Cricut Cartridges - George & Basic Shapes, Christmas, Joys of the Season, Indie Art
