Cricut: The Official Blog
Tuesday, April 12, 2011
Greetings, everyone!  Today, I am excited to get to show you the latest project by Nana Susan, "Elegant Cards".  She has been working on this one for a while now, and I just think it is the most GORGEOUS set of cards I have ever seen!  Not to mention the bustier gift box - how amazing is that???  This is a kit, and it's also a class for those of you in the Northern California.  The class date is May 3rd from 6-10pm, and then kits will be ready to ship out shortly after - probably around May 10th.  To order, email me at moniquegriffith@yahoo.com.  Include the name of the kit you'd like, your state, and preferred payment method (PayPal or check).  See below for all of the details and pics.



And don't forget to leave a comment today for Nana Susan, and that will also enter you for a chance to win this week's blog candy - 5 bottle of Liquid Pearls and 5 bottles of Stickles!



This chic and elegant card set and gift box uses the Summer in Paris cartridge.  Ooh-la-la!  The kit will include the pre-cut box (so you won't have to have the Tags, Bags, Boxes cart and long mat), plus you'll get all of the beautiful patterned papers, ribbons, flowers, pearls, and envelopes for your cards.  You'll also get directions with Cricut Cut Chart, easy to follow written instructions and plenty of color photographs.



To complete this project as shown, you will need the following supplies:  Cricut Expression and mat, Summer in Paris cartridge, distressing ink (black or dark purple or dark blue will do), decorative border punch (optional), scoring bone and ruler, hole punch, stapler, 3D pop dots, plus basic tools and adhesive.



This complete kit is $25, or you can always purchase just the directions for $10.  If you do order just the directions, keep in mind that you'll need the Tags, Bags, Boxes cart and a 12x24 mat in addition to the supplies listed above.  Shipping is available, and ranges from $5 in California to $6-$9 in the rest of the US, depending on location, and we're happy to combine shipping if you're purchasing other kits.



If you are in the Northern California area, we'd love to have you sign up for this class on May 3rd.  It will be here at my home in Rocklin from 6-10pm, and you'll get a fun night out plus hands-on help with your project.  The class is already half full, even before anyone has seen this project, so I'm guessing it'll fill up quickly. 



To order, just email me at moniquegriffith@yahoo.com.  Include the name of the kit you'd like to order, your state, and preferred payment method (PayPal or check).  You might even want to order 2.  I can't tell you how many people tell me that they buy a cute "gift" project like this, but then can't stand to give it away, LOL!



Have a wonderful day!!
