My Favorite Cricut Card Ideas from 2010

I have had so much fun this year making and sharing the cards that I have made with my Cricut Expression Machine with all of you.  I can’t believe all the Cricut Card Ideas that you can have with just one cartridge, then when you have alot of cricut cartridges the possibilities are endless.

But looking though all of the posts that I have made, I think that my favorite  Cricut Card is….drum roll


This was the card that I made for Mother’s Day.  I used the Sweethearts Cricut cartridge for this and some flowers from Walk in my Garden cartridge.  Our Mom’s loved it I think because they were able to see our faces on a card.

My second place favorite Cricut Card is….


I made this birthday card for my brother-in-law after he ran the New York City marathon.  I used the Paisley Cricut cartridge for the sneaker and for the background was a city border from Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.  I put his running number on the back along with the same medallion that he received on the side of the sneaker. It looked like a subway token.

I have always said that making handmade greeting cards is like you are giving a present too!

Another Great Cricut Card Idea For Mother’s Day, Using the Sweethearts Cricut Cartridge

This year I wanted to make our Mother’s Day cards using my Cricut Expression machine.  I recently purchased the Sweethearts Cricut cartridge and really took a look at all the great images that were on  this cartridge.  I can see many fun Cricut card ideas coming from this one cartridge.

The bicycle built for two would be perfect.  Since the cards are from my husband and myself this would work out great.  I filled the basket with some flowers from the Walk In My Garden Cricut cartridge, along with a small Prima flower with a rhinestone in the middle.  For the center of the wheels I used a flower punch and added a rhinestone again for that added bling.   I wanted to put two people on the bicycle seats, so again from the Sweethearts cartridge there is an  image of the couple sitting at the cafe table would work, since they were sitting on a chair and now would be on the seat of this bicycle.  All I needed to do was snip there hands apart.  This Sweethearts cartridge is really fun!  I can’t wait to make more cricut cards with it.

When I was done with these cards they looked adorable, and with our own saying inside that I printed with my computer would really make our Moms happy.

When I showed them to my husband, he thought they were cute but he had an idea.  To cut our faces out of a picture and put them on the bodies of the couple.  During Christmas you see that they have “elf yourself” on the computer, well we just did that on our card.  What a great cricut card idea that was.  Hope you enjoy the card, I had so much fun making them.

Wishing our Moms a Fantastic Mother’s Day, because they only deserve the Best!
