No Cricut?? No Problem!!

I needed to make some Congrats cards for the winners of my blog candy, since my Daughter's Birthday Party is tonight I needed to make the quickly! 

I think when the Cricut (which I love) is taken out of the equation the cards are much easier to make. I used 100% scraps for all my paper and supplies that have been laying around! Yippee!
Cards are 3X3

Flowers from Micheals

  2. Super cute cards Carri. I agree that the Cricut can make things more complicated and time consuming.

    Happy birthday to your daughter! It's a great time of year to have a birthday (mine's tomorrow)!!!

  9. I agree, the Cricut does take a little longer.. I try to use my scraps, which I have plenty of, but usually the piece I need isn 't bigger enough. BEAUTIFUL cards Carrie...

  30. LOVE all your cards. These seem to be the perfect way to use all your scraps. I should make a bunch just for "thanks yous". Do you make the envelopes for this size or buy them? Or not even worry about it since they are going it to package?

    Hope the party was a success! I'll text you later!

  52. Hey Carrie, I love these cards, it's so nice to see some cards made without the Cricut for a change. I love my Cricut, but sometimes more trouble than it's worth. I like to try and cut double when I am making it hard so I have things ready in a pinch! These are all beautiful, and happy birthday to your daughter! Karen♥
