Tuesday Trigger Challenge: Porch Play

Seriously, how could I resist playing along with this week's Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World? I mean, look at this gorgeousness:


That amazing mirror, the bright colors... yes, please! Not to mention another chance to play around with my Cricut. 

First, I diecut a frame and its layer out of leftover cereal box (yes, the Cricut can cut chipboard!) using the Sentimentals cartridge, then added this:


And ended up with this:


The edged cardbase is another cut from the Sentimentals cartridge. 

The best part? My DIY frame is actually a magnet!


I simply attached it to the cardfront with glue dots for easy removal.


I had SO much fun making this card. I love it so much, I might not be able to give this one away!

Card Supplies:
Stamps: American Crafts "Letterbox Small Thanks", Papertrey Ink "Polka Dot Basics", Ink: ColorBox pigment "Aqua", SEI chalk "Cumquats"; Accessories: Cricut / Sentimentals cartridge, cereal box, OPI nail polish, Ranger Glossy Accents, adhesive rhinestones, foam adhesive, adhesive magnets, glue dots
