Hello My Fellow Crafters,
This card was sooo much fun to make because I used my old favorite the Cricut Expression added with my new favorite Zentangle and look what I created?
I used the Cricut Expression with the Wild Card Cartridge to cut out the Phrase Happy Fathers Day on white cardstock.
Then I started having a lot of fun just Zentangling each letter with a black 01 Micron marker from Sakura. Used some pop dots for the 3D look on the back of the phrase and then just layered with black and blue cardstock.
I am really happy how this card came out. Why don’t you try to incorporate some of your old and new favorite crafts together and see what cool things you can create 🙂

Ya gotta love the Cricut Expression machine. I had to make a birthday card for my niece. I knew that she was making a dollhouse with her mom, so I wanted to make this handmade greeting card special. After finding out her colors that they were painting the dollhouse, I decided to use the same colors for the handmade card.
Using my Cricut Expression and the Wild Card Cricut Cartridge was the perfect choice for my cricut card idea. All of the samples showed this Wild Card Cricut Cartridge being used for moving/change of address, but I decided to make it a dollhouse instead.
I set my Cricut Expression to cut the card at 7″ and it was a great size since I wanted to embellish this handmade greeting card with some cute card and scrapbooking embellishments that I have.
I used a pink rhinestone for the door handle, I had a 3D EK Success sticker of a white picket fence that I cut down to size and also some fun stickers of palm trees to accent the front door. I finished it with a pink butterfly 3D sticker again from EK Success.
For the inside I went trough all of the rubber stamps that I have (and that’s a lot of rubber stamps, good thing that I have my rubber stamping supplies organized in containers that are labeled) but what I decided was to make the inside of this handmade greeting card very simple and just used a rubber stamp that said Happy Birthday.
I love the way that it turned out.
Wishing Riley a Very Happy Birthday!
Make it a Great Day and don’t forget to leave time to Craft!
Using the Wild Card Cricut Cartridge
I needed to make a Graduation Card. I looked through all my cartridges and decided to use the Wild Card since it had the best graduation cap. The only thing that I added was making some fringe cuts on the tassel to look like a “real tassel”.
Then after I cut the envelope, I just added the graduates name to the front
The card was cut at 6 inches, and the envelope at 6 ½ inches only because I did not want the tassel to get messed up.
How cool is this card and envelope?
