Doggone Good Card with Cricut Just Because Cards


Today's card and video is from the Just Because Cards Cricut cartridge! This is a project I made a couple of years ago and it's still one of my favorites!  I just love this paper line, Max and Whiskers from Basic Grey for all those pet layouts and cards. I thought it would be a perfect match with this "doggone good" card!



Here's some info on the cuts:

Card, dog (with layers and "Doggone Good" word art: cut at 5-1/2"
Circle cut at 3-1/4" and 3-1/2"
Envelope: Used card cut at 6" (don't cut at 5-1/2", it needs room for the tab)
Little inside dog cut using Sticker Feature key at 2"

This is the envelope and card together. I decorated the envelope with another little dog and mounted him on a tag punched with a new EK Success punch. Ribbon is from Papertrey Ink. Max and Whiskers Paper from Basic Grey.

Envelope comes with score lines. If you don't like how they look, as they are large, you can remove them using the "hide selected contour" feature on the Design Studio Software, Gypsy or Cricut Craft Room. To pick an envelope for your card, check out this guide: Tips and Tricks for Just Because Cards cartridge.


Here's the video! If you can't see it, click HERE!



Don't forget about this weeks stamp giveaway. 
I will send out 10 My Creative Time stamp sets to one lucky winner!
