Krafty Girls Challenge #2: Feelin' Lucky

Hello Crafty Friends!


Here is my submission for the
Krafty Girls Challenge #2:  Feelin' Lucky

The base of this card is 7"x8" green cardstock.  I used the Cricut Craft Room (woop woop!) for the first time, ever, and it was amazing (since I do not own a Gypsy -- yet!).  So, for the word "feelin'" I used the Lyrical Letters cartridge in 'Loop Dee Loo' font, and was able to weld it together in the CCR. :-)  Both the word "Lucky" (phrase feature) and "Pot of Gold" were from the Create A Critter cartridge.  The "pot" is actually the TURTLE shell (layer 2 feature), upside down.  Cool, huh? And, I used foam squares to make it "pop".  I made the "gold" using the Cricut Craft Room Basics by welding and reshaping the scalloped circle and oval shapes.  The rainbow was made using Creative Memories Circle Patterns.  The card is framed in sparkly ribbon from my stash.  Gold rhinestones give the final accents.  The words "Feelin' Lucky" and the "Gold" are embellished with Stickles.

I am also linking up this project to:

  1. I love this card! So shiny and pretty! I haven't used the Cricut Craft Room yet but want to try it out soon. Thanks for playing along at Krafty Girls! :)


  2. I'm totally addicted to the Cricut Craft Room (I guess because I don't have a Gypsy and now can WELD things -- been dying to do that, lol). It's so easy and nice to just sit back and design on a full screen. The hardest part was having my husband look for the cable that would work. LOL.

    Thanks for your support!
