CCP Challenge #49 - Use Something New

This weeks Challenge on Crazy Card Party is....

To use something new.... so I decided to finally break out my new Cricut Explore machine and created this in Cricut Design Space and cut it on my New Cricut Machine!  Let me say it was so easy to figure out!  I even used a cricut cartridge Love you Latte that I have never used and owned for like forever so I consider it new too!

Here is my card to wish you some Warm Wishes during this cold week!

As you can see I could not resist adding dimension to the steam coming from cup  I used Pop dots to do this.

Here also I managed a little dimension with the word cafe and the hearts!

  1. Using Cricut Design Space size the coffee cup from the Love you a Latte to fit the card canvas.
  2. Ungroup all the shapes and copy the main base  2 times.
  3. Copy the heart one time.
  4. Group your cuts together so they cut on the same mat that you need them to be.
  5. Cut all the cuts out on the Cricut Expore
  6. Using a Sticker maker add brown glitter to the top of the brown cuts.
  7. Ink all the edges of the cuts and add some glitter to the steam shapes.
  8. Attach all the pieces together.
