Want to Share a Cruise Card!

I am on the Design Team at  Obsessed with Scrapbooking and many of you are probably familiar with Joy who owns the website. She was one of the instructors on last year's cruise and had a fabulous layout for us to do in her class, which was posted on this blog sometime ago.  Anyway for my project I wanted to make a card to send to some of my friends who will be going on the Cricut Cruise this year. I will be sending this card out about a month before the cruise just to let them know it is almost vacation time and that I am looking forward to spending the time with them.

Supplies Used:
- Cricut Expression
- Creative Memories Cricut Traveler Cartridge
- Patterned paper - Creative Imaginations
- Doodlebug glitter cardstock
- Various cardstock
- Signo UM 153 Gel Pen
- Mounting foam
- Cat Eye Chalk Ink
- Heat set gems
- twine

I loved the postage stamp cut on the cartridge and decided to use it to mat the flip flop cuts on. My friend Karen is gonna go GAGA over this cut as she is a lover of flip flops. In the summer it is rare to see her in any other kind of shoe and I think that is what she wore on the cruise unless we were going to the dining room. Oh anyhow back to the flip flops, I used a 5mm heat set gem for a little added bling. The strap was cut from Doodlebug glitter paper. I thought the twine just added a little more accent and went well with the tropical theme of the card.

This phrase was readily available on the cartridge and just seems perfect for the occasion in which I will be sending the card. While I might have been better off choosing a different color I am still over all pleased with the card.

If you would like to order the Creative Memories Traveler Cartridge you can order it from Joy at her CREATIVE MEMORIES WEBSIT
