Cricut Wildcard/PTI new home card and gift

Hello everyone,

Happy Friday and I hope you have good things planned for the weekend. My youngest son is moving to a new flat tomorrow so I made a New Home card using my Cricut Wildcard cartridge, based on a card I made on a workshop at Crab Apple Crafts. I added a couple of trees in planters for the sides of the door and decorated them with red dots cut with my Cropodile paper punch.

I used a little brass brad for the door knob and cut 57 out of red card as that is the number of the new flat.

 I wanted to do a letterbox for the door, so I looked through my stash to see if I had anything suitable, and found my new PTI stamp set Enjoy the Ride. I stamped the car and cut out the number plate for the letterbox and stamped 'just moved' in the centre. This is going to be such a versatile set with all the different sentiments on it.

I hope he likes it.

We went to dinner at some friends last week and rather than take some after dinner mints, I made some chocolate/almond cookies to take as a gift

I wondered how to wrap them, and found a handmade box

 which I was able to dress up with some ribbon

and a tag made with the PTI Mat Stack 1 die and a stamp from the Round and Round anniversary stamp set.

I used a Just Rite stamp for the gift sentiment and cut it out with a circle punch.

Have a great weekend.
