Zots Adhesive dots 3/16”

Recipe: I used this great apple cardstock from DCWV the Sweet Stack available from Die Cuts R Us to make my Monogram card. I also used Green Galore, Pixie Pink, and Apricot Appeal that I cut with my Spellbinders Petite Ovals I just bought from Die Cuts R Us. The Monogram T was cut on my Cricut using the Plantin Schoolbook in a 1 3/4 size cut, on the 1st cut and on the shadow. (available with Cricut at Die Cuts R Us) I added a little bling with some pink glitter and I cut one of the apples from the DCWV card stock and I used some of the Crystal Effects. When the apple dried, I touched it with some real red ink and added a bow.


Recipe: The card base is the Doily Cut at 5 inches from the Wild Card Cricut cartridge. The three white stacks are Nesties and all have been embossed through the Cuttlebug Embossing Folder/Swiss Dots. The initial C and tulip flower are from Cricut Storybook, A ribbon and jewels have been added for additional embellishments.




Recipe: From the Downtown Collection-Coney Island and Gramercy Park Double Sided Paper from DCRU; Flowers and Acrylic Jewels-Prima; Scallop Square Punch-Fiskars; Stampin' Up grosgrain ribbon, Purely Pomegranate ink, Round Scallop Punch and rub-on; Cricut Expression with Accent Essentials Cartridge for 4" Circle; Just Rite Stampers -Damask Monogram Kit from DCRU.
