Handy Cards

Happy Friday Friends.   Today is reveal day for the SOUS Die Cut team.  We were challenged to use a Die cut Gate.   I created several cards to keep in my stack of go to cards when I need em'.  
I love that these can be used as sympathy, encouragement, or for a thinking of you.   For the Gate I turned to Cricut Cartridge Picturesque, and for the Bird - Artiste.   The tulips are from a Cricut Lite - Botanicals.   I also embossed the gate giving it a woodgrain feel.  And again, I am finding that the six by six paper pads are a fabulous go to.  Everything corridinates, and I dont feel like I am waisting paper.  Just love that.

Yes I know there are so many options out there for die cutting, but for now my Cricut and my investment still meet my needs.   I just know that I have not used all my cartridges to their fullest potential and will continue to do so until I cant any longer... or .. until I cave to the newest in electronic cutting. 

Be sure to check out the SOUS blog for inspiration where you will find that we all use different tools and seem to all create an everlasting memory.


  1. Your cards are just beautiful Kimi! I love the beautiful papers and images you used! I love that gate too, don't have this cart. Your bows are so pretty on the cards as well, these will make great cards for your stash! Hugs!

  2. Gorgeous cards! I like wood grain look you gave the fence. I agree the 6x6 pads are the best for making cards. Not as much waste.

  3. Hi Kimi, Your cards are gorgeous! I really like this gate cut from Picturesque:)Love all the layers! Like You, I still really love my cricut. I have lots of cartridges that I don't think I've used to their fullest potential. So many people are changing but I am happy......
    Thank you so much for your kind words too, so nice of you:)
