FCCB #292 - Something New Card and VIDEO!

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #292-Something New
Make a project using a new technique, cartridge, embellishment, etc.

This Weeks Sponsor

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

Any project that doesn't use a Cricut element will be deleted.

For my project this week I created a pretty watercoloured background card featuring NEW to me Happy Toaster Cutting Files from our awesome sponsor, Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons! I used Cricut Basic Shapes to cut a scalloped circle from a striped black 6x6" paper and layered it on a floral print paper cut to fit my kraft card base.

I've been playing with some NEW Tattered Angels mists and used them to create this great watercoloured background! (check out the video below to see how I did it!) 

This cute stamp from Pretty Cute Stamps Snack Time fit perfectly into the banner cut from the Cricut CTMH Artistry cartridge. For the finishing touch I added sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps!

Inside, a sentiment from that cute Snack Time set I mentioned above.

Here's a process video showing you how I created this cute card - click HERE or watch below:
