BBTB2 - Vacation

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It is time for another fun challenge at BBTB2! Our talented Carole is hostess for this challenge and she chose Vacation. Use any Cricut cartridge to feature a vacation/holiday. Starting today with this challenge, each challenge will run for only one week.

I have not taken a vacation yet this year, but I wanted to play along with my newest Cricut cartridge. Recently Michael's had Cricut cartridges on sale and my nearest store had only one of the Wild Card 2 cartridges. I spent a Christmas gift card for the purchase. Would you believe that I have held a gift card that long!

Cricut Cartridge:
Wild Card 2 - Page 54 - Camper is cut 4.25" using the card feature and shadow. Main cuts and the layer feature were also cut at the same size. Using papers from my scrap stash, the plaid makes a fun little camper.

For the inside of the card, I used Phrase and Phrase layer features cut at 2". Home Is Where You Are! 
Cuttlebug: Distressed Stripes
Other supplies include Versa Magic gingerbread inking, white Gelly Roll pen and gold stickles.

Working in the Cricut Craft Room, I was unable to hide the cut marks for the fold lines. These are simple folds and really do not need a cut mark. Maybe CCR can work this out soon.

Visit BBTB2 to see all the fun and creative projects by the design team. For more information about a project, visit the individual blogs!  We love your visits and comments!
Now it is your turn to play along with us! Remember this is a Cricut challenge and the theme image must be cut with the Cricut. Please mention in your blogpost which cartridge you used. 
Just a reminder - You have a week left to enter our elephant challenge if you have not done so!
We look forward to see what you create!
