Straight From the Nest Cricut Cartridge Cards

These are a couple of cards I made a while back.  They are 5x7 white cardstock, greeting card sized.  The top paper is from a DCWV stack and the bottom one is American Crafts.  The cut is from the Straight From the Nest Cricut cartridge.  There are LOTS of layers on the second card.  There is a solid mat 4 3/4x 6 3/4, pattern paper mat 4 1/2x6 3/4.  then a solid mat 4 1/4x 5 1/2 and patterned paper 4x5 1/4.  The image from page 43 of the handbook is a corner cut at 5 1/2 with solid paper shift and the and the regular cut.  The smaller mat was mounted on pop dots as was the corner piece.  The sentiment is stamped on PTI Double Ended banner die from white cardstock.  This one is sort of time consuming but VERY pretty and interesting.  The top one was cut from a scrap.  The corners of the cut were missing, so I cut 2 flowers from the same page and covered the mistake.  Voila, an intentional mistake!  My husband calls those things "features"!
Thank you for looking at my blog!
