Card Needs Help

This card is one of the first complete cards I made using my Cricut Expression 2.  A friend came over one weekend and we experimented with different cartridges.  This frame is cut using the Fancy Frames cartridge.  The stamp is from a collection by ________.  Part of the proceeds from this collection go to the Operation Write Home program.

This is a really clean and simple card, and really, I think it's kind of lame.  I made the mistake of stamping the fence over the house without using a mask so I ended up stamping it again then cutting it out and using pop dots to position it over the original stamping.  I like the fence part of the stamp but the overall card needs something more.  Maybe some grass, I dunno.

The stamped image was colored in using Copic pens.


  1. Hey Paula you did a great job. Wonderful frame card. All very nice! Oh and thanks for you sweet email and I just became a follower!

  2. I think the fence looks great. Adding some grass would "ground" the house a bit more. Maybe add a tree/flower to the left side or under the fence. Don't give up you're doing just fine!
