Cricut Cardz Challenge #26 - Brads or Eyelets

Well, Shelly (thanks for becoming a follower!) pointed me in the direction of The Cricut Cardz Challenges last night in the Wine Glass Thank You Post. She thought I should enter it over at Cricut Cardz Challenge. Little did she know I was creating a new one just for that challenge while she was writing that!

Last night I made three cards with envelopes that I can't wait to share with you! The theme of all three is chandeliers. I just recently got the Embossing Folders Love is in the Air Set™ (which inevitably has me doing the Samba every time I use one of the embossing folders - reference to the movie Dirty Dancing). But I digress. I love the chandelier in this set and since I recently got the Summer in Paris Cartridge™ and there is a 3D chandelier on that too - I just had to try them all.

This card was made with the 3D chandelier. There is one slit on the top of the first piece and another on the bottom of the second piece so that the two pieces can go together - I really should have taken a picture of this - so I simply cut off the top of the piece that had the slit on the top and glued it on top of the piece that had the slit on the bottom thusly hiding both slits and getting one solid chandelier. I hope that makes sense.

The card shape and envelope were cut from the Sentimentals Cartridge™ at 4.5". - I believe it was the lock button. I used scraps from the edge of the paper after I cut out the card for the inside of the envelope. I love using scraps! I used my Crop-a-Dile to take care of the eyelets.

Enjoy and I'll be posting one of my embossed chandelier cards tomorrow!
