Exploring Cricut

It's time for our second challenge at Exploring Cricut. We are using the Celebrations Cartridge for this challenge. The candy on page 111 to be exact. I decided to use the card feature for my card. Just use the fill the page feature on your Expression and it will make it as big as it can. It's not quite a 6x6 card when folded, but almost. And the corners are already rounded!! I seperated my candy using my Gyspy Girl so I could have them all different colors. I also seperated the center design, by using the hide contour feature. I cut each of the bigger pieces twice at 3 1/2 inches and the smaller ones once at 2 1/2 inches. I used glossy accents on one each of the bigger pieces and the small pieces. The bg paper is from American Crafts-halloween. The sentiment is from a wooden stamp. I used the back of the bg paper and then used scissors on the ends and added tiny faux black half pearls. The twine is Mandarin from The Twinery. I felt it needed something else, so I added the spiders on the outside and the web on the inside. They are from Hobby Lobby. A really cute new set of bling they have out. And there is a prize! Go visit and check out the details! Now it is your turn to create something using the candy from page 111 on the Celebrations Cartidge and if you don't have that cart, the candy on the Christmas Cheer cart is a close second! You have until 9 pm EST, Saturday, October 29th. Can't wait to see what ya'll create!!! Don't forget to check out what my DT Sisters have created for you viewing pleasure. Awesomeness for sure!! Hope ya'll like my card! :)

I love that you decorate the inside of your cards, Sharon. I never think to do that, but it makes a big difference!
