Vacation Time card - DT Project

One of the requirements for being on the Obsessed with Scrapbooking Design Team right now is that we use the Traveler Cartridge. I really love the cuts on this cartridge. While at first there seems to be just beach theme cuts there are some wonderful cuts that go with other vacation themes, some of which I will use on my next project that will post later this week.

I made this card with a few people in mind. As you know the information for the next Cricut Cruise has been released and I have a few friends from last time that are going to be on the boat as well as a few new sailors. I thought I would send my friends this card about a month before the cruise just to let them know it was almost vacation time and that I am looking forward to spending the time with them.

Supplies Used:
- Cricut Expression
- Creative Memories Cricut Traveler Cartridge
- Patterned paper - Creative Imaginations
- Doodlebug glitter cardstock
- Various cardstock
- Signo UM 153 Gel Pen
- Mounting foam
- Cat Eye Chalk Ink
- Heat set gems
- twine

I loved the postage stamp cut on the cartridge and decided to use it to mat the flip flop cuts on. My friend Karen is gonna go GAGA over this cut as she is a lover of flip flops. In the summer it is rare to see her in any other kind of shoe and I think that is what she wore on the cruise unless we were going to the dining room. Oh anyhow back to the flip flops, I used a 5mm heat set gem for a little added bling. The strap was cut from Doodlebug glitter paper. I thought the twine just added a little more accent and went well with the tropical theme of the card.

This phrase was readily available on the cartridge and just seems perfect for the occasion in which I will be sending the card. While I might have been better off choosing a different color I am still over all pleased with the card.

If you would like to order the Creative Memories Traveler Cartridge you can order it from Joy at her CREATIVE MEMORIES WEBSITE.
