Lovin' Spring Holiday Cards

I really wasn't sure about this cartridge when I first bought it, but I have all the seasonal mini's since they first came out, so I didn't want to not buy it. Well I'm really enjoying the simplicity of this cartridge and I just love the stain glass look I use on these cuts. Here are two more cards I created, very simple, very quick, with packaging acrylic/acetate and markers. I cut the acrylic, glued it on the back and color with permanent markers, (I used bic mark it's, you have to color quickly), on the backside of the acrylic.

I welded and used hide contour with my gypsy a cut from the Just Because Cards cartridge and the luck of the irish cut.

I used the hide contour again to get rid of the corner cuts and the card outline and then welded to combine the cut.


  1. oooohhh...these are really pretty! I have to admit, I bought that cart also (so I wouldn't regret it later) and have I used it yet? Nooooo...gonna have to break it out now, you have inspired me!

  2. Those are really cute! I don't have that particular cartridge but you sure gave me a good idea to use some cuts off a couple that I do own!
