Card using Accent Essentials

I can't believe it has been over a month since I posted anything! So much for my resolution to be more of an active blogger this year. My world has been crazy busy! My son turned two, work is work and I am taking it all one day at a time. I have been crafting but I just haven't been posting.

I follow More Than Favors and she co-hosts a Cricut Cartridge Chaos Challenge (CCCC) where every week readers get to pick a cartridge to feature for the following week. This week's cartridge is Accent Essentials. This is one of the first cartridges I bought after I purchased my Cricut and it is one of the least used, so I decided I had to play along to get some use out of this cart. Here is my card:

I cut three of these using the regular cut, the shift and the shadow. I used a neon green, turquoise and orange - all cut at 2.25". The middle one I did faux stitching around and used paprika stickles in the cut out part. I had some scrap navy card stock that I cut at 3" and used a Martha Stewart border punch (something like scallop and dots) and adhered to the middle of a 4" X 9" card base of SU whisper white. I stamped a scrappy moms saying in Cajun Craze. I also used a Martha Stewart alphabet to spell dad and used the same stickles to make the dots. Very simple card and I got to use Accent Essentials, yay!!

I want to enter more challenges just to get my creative juices flowing again, so hopefully I will post again - soon! Have a great day!
