A Hybrid Card



It's not often that I whip out my Cricut to do cards anymore. Not that I don't love my Cricut but it seems I have taken on a new obsession with stamping. Every card I do anymore centers around some sort of stamping technique and particularly Copics. So for this post I decided to force myself to do some sort of hybrid card, blending my new love stamping with my old love, the Cricut. I wanted something with a fall theme since I had just recently purchased this Willow image from Whiff of Joy. I couldn't wait to color it and put it on a card. The die cuts are from the Straight from the Nest cartridge and seemed to work really well. I think you can have two loves, right? My Cricut and my stamps... Until next time have a wonderful day!
