Gearing up for Cricut Club

at Green Tangerines... I love the white-on-white, faux embossed look. This month we will be working with chalks and stamps, along with the Wild Card Cricut cartridge. The gals will be able to make the card with their choice of one of three colors. The swap this month is thank-you cards. I'm thinkin' about gearing up here in a minute to make 3 sets myself to swap with the gals...

I tried the technique

and with some refining and practice, by george I think I got it! Here's a little card I made using scrapperlicious' extreme punching technique. I rather like how it turned out... but I'm not looking forward to cleaning up the mess -- geeeeesh, my scrap table is a HOT MESS! ;)
And... I must thank my sweet friend, Kinsey, for the idea of the circles - she did this similar technique on one of her layouts for Green Tangerines Kit Club, and I just fell in love with it - thank you, again, KinseyGirl!
I also chose to add my initials to the note card... I had been wanting to make myself a set of blank cards for a long time, and now I think I'll make this a set :)
