I've had this pear cut out for months; I had a design for it in mind, but for some reason every time I went to use it I ended up making something else entirely. Today I was having some mojo trouble, so I got out my box of "pieces" and decided it was time to finally use the pear. In just a few minutes, I whipped up this card by adding a circle nestie, an embossing folder, some yummy woodgrain label tape, and a corner rounder punch. The hardest part was gluing down those little seeds!
Can I just say how much I love this pear? Of course, it makes me want to cut out all the other fab designs on that cartridge (there's a cute apple that would make another great card), but alas, my Cricut Create is deader than a doornail. I think I used it a total of ten times (maybe) before it just quit working. I've e-mailed them, done the reset thing - no go. I'm afraid the international shipping costs to send it in for repair would be outrageous; I'm considering just getting a Silhouette SD instead. I actually like their images better, and from what I've seen the cuts are cleaner, too. Plus, no more messing with cartridges - just buy the images you like. My birthday is coming up in a few months (hint, hint - just in case you happen to read this, honey!)
