Cricut Cardz Challenge #42

Hi everyone! How are you all on this fine day? If this is your first time visiting HELLO. If you've been here before welcome back. My girls you know who you are. HEHE.
Here is the card that I made for the challenge over at Cricut Cardz Challenge I am lovin' being a part of the DT, the ladies over there are soooo creative. Please go take a look around and play along with us this week.
I am almost done making all of the Halloween invites for my baby's birthday in a few weeks. YES! So this challenge fit in nicely with what is going on at our house.

Okay SOOOOO.... I have a tip for today.
If you are cutting something that is really intricate like this fence then change your speed down. I had my speed at 3 and my pressure at 5 because I was cutting through Stampin Up Cardstock and it's really thick. But, if you have thinner cardstock that can be lower as well. And my dial on the actual blade was at 4. I hope this helps some of you. :)

Here's a list of What was used:
Cricut-Beyond Birthdays for the card feature. Mini Monsters for the Fence. (I didn't realize how many cute images were on Mini Monsters.) and Paper Doll Dress Up for the Crow.
Embellishments-Some Bling from Michaels
Extras- White gel pen and black writing marker
Paper- Stampin Up retired yellow and purple and the black is basic black.


  1. Raven your DT card is sooooo cute for this week's challenge. Great tips on cutting intricate designs.

  2. The fence is awesome! I love the added bling. Tfs and have a great day. :)

  3. I agree with Star! I love the bling on the fence - I think it really makes the card. TFS :)

  4. Love this card! I have been "eyeing" that fence for a while, but was afraid it wouldn't cut nicely. Thanks so much for the tip. I will have to go and cut it now...hehe. Great job! Hugs, Kimmy
