Crafts With Cutters Challenge #121

Happy Wednesday!  Today is challenge day at and we have made cards for our teammate Madison's "I Feel the Love" Project.  This month cards are being collected to bring a smile to a 21 year old who lost everything in Hurricane Sandy.  For more info on Alana and/or the IFTL Project please visit Madison's website.

So this little card is made completely from scraps -- that's right . . . every last piece of it is from my scrap stash!  And I even had enough left over to make a second card.

Here is the card for Alana:

And here is the second card:

Here's the recipe:

  • Green gingham border -- Cricut Essentials cartridge, cut at 4 1/4" wide.
  • Orange and Hot Pink squares -- Cricut Lacy Labels cartridge, cut at 2 1/2" wide.
  • White circle -- Cricut George & Basic Shapes cartridge, cut at 1 3/4"
  • The "Sending You Sunshine" was created using Microsoft Publisher.

  • The cards are 5 1/2" tall by 4 1/4" wide.
  • Some ribbon and a little bit of bling finish off these cheerful cards!
