Memory is Forever Cricutless Card

Happy TGIF everyone! I'm so excited another weekend is upon us! I have a card to enter into a few challenges today before I head outside to enjoy the gorgeous weather :)
I jokingly told Diana of DL.ART that I didn't think cards could be made without using a Cricut, and I have to admit, I do have a hard time making them without using it. I've only had a Cricut for a little over two years and made tons of cards before, so I know it can be done. But wow, I'm so addicted to it! I actually was going to enter this into the My Creative Time Throwback Thursday Cricutless challenge, but just realized you were supposed to use the sketch, too and I didn't. Oops! Oh well, there's always next week... :)

For this Cricutless card, I embossed the black paper with the argyle Sizzix folder to mimic the design of the patterned paper from DCWV Glitter Stack. I inked the edges with black ink. I used McGill punches to make the flower, and the charm I had in my stash. The twine is from the Twinery and I used a Fiskars corner punch to make the tag. The gems were attached with my iRock.

I am entering the card in the following challenges:

Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday - Black/white and one other color
Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge #88 - Add a charm

Thanks so much for stopping by and the sweet comments! I truly appreciate them! Have a GREAT weekend :D

  6. That's a beautiful sentiment. You did great without your Cricut :) Can you believe I don't own a Cricut or any other cutter/embossing machine? Crazy! I know! Maybe it'll be on my Christmas/birthday list, hmmm....

  19. Lisa, this is gorgeous! The color scheme is stunning and I adore the shimmery facets. That charm is so precious and the flower is so beautifully done! (And of course the sentiment is so lovely.) I'm running out of words for you, my crafty friend! The Cricut isn't even needed by you... it simply enhances your incredible creative spirit. :o)
