Today's Wonderful Wednesday Craft with Cutters challenge theme is Easter.

I don't have any Easter themed cartridges for my Cricut, so I decided to design my card using other cartridges.

Using the Cricut Class Room, I set up my bottom layer then added other elements in layers to design the card.

The scalloped border across the card was done by  joining scalloped borders together (Plantin Schoolbook) and cutting them. I punched holes in the top layer to thread the ribbon through.

For the words, I used the frame from Accent Essentials and added the words using the letters from the Songbird cartridge. I really need to use this one more often as it welds together beautifully. I welded one set of the letters together and added it to the frame, then made another set to cut in a different colour to highlight the words.

To finish it all off, I punched the corners of the bottom layer using a dragonfly corner punch, then added it to the card base. I added sparkle to the words using Kindi Glitz.

Please join us this week for our Easter Challenge over at My Paper Crafting.

Wow Janet, how cool that you made such an awesome Easter card from other carts! I love how clever you were at pulling this beautiful card together! I love the ribbon work, that looks so amazing on the shape you made, the punched fireflies look great in each corner and I love your Happy Easter in that shape, great color choices too! Hugs!!
