Ever have ONE-OF-THOSE-CARDS! ... you know the ones where everything that could go wrong did!!!...well this is one of those!!.... first I was wanting a wonderful idea...something very special for Vicki's wedding card... that just never came to me... today she is getting married so I had to be sure and make her this one ... and if another one comes to me she will have two... the cut I wanted to use would not cut out of the black paper that I have...the kind that is more like construction paper than cardstock... I wish I could find some wonderful black paper!!.. so I had to decide on something completely different... then I printed the names...not quite centered.. then I embossed the second try and the paper slipped and I had to reprint and then re-emboss.....then I left words out of my circle text...didn't notice until card was completely put fixing it I smudged the stickles..had to remove the bells and do those over not to mention some of the other things that went wrong!!...good thing the wedding was too far for me to attend there is no telling what I would have done to mess that up... Vicki's dress is red so I wanted the red accents!!!.... I hope her day has been perfect all it has done here is rain!

Jeannie I think your card is perfect. Sometimes when we want to do something so special it just doesn't happen, but I think you this is adorable and I'm sure Vicki will be over the moon with it.

Sometimes simple is all that is needed! And I would love this card from you. I deserves a special place in her scrapbook.

Have you tried the black cardstock from the office supply isle at Walmart. I think it is less than $4 for 50 sheets of 8.5 x 11. I use their white which is 150 sheets for just over $5. And the card looks great!

Hi Jeannie!

This is Tammy from CHRISTMAS WITH THE CRICUT... I was just browsing your blog (you are SO talented!). I especially love your brilliant idea of computer printing a sentiment/name, scoring on each side... then embossing it! Pure genious!! You really should teach this technique in November! Oh, and I also use the white and black cardstock from Walmart. You can't beat the price and it is great to do practice cuts with too! But for a true beautiful black 12x12 cardstock, the NIGHTFALL from Core'dinations is a must have. JMO!


PS: GD announcements going out tonight!
