I have had the E2 since they came out with it. I just couldn't resist and bought it right away. In getting that one I got four pre-loaded cartridges. I have used something on all of those cartridges, except Just a Note. I always thought the little critters on there were cute, but just never used one on a project. So, now I am going to play around Just a Note and see what it has to offer. :) Here is my first creation with this cute little cartridge.
The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4." I used a light green cardstock for the card base. I cut some brown cardstock at 5"x3 3/4" and then some polka dotted turquoise blue cardstock at 4 3/4"x3 1/2." I added a strip of brown cardstock cut at 3 1/2"x2" and a strip of light green cardstock at 3 1/2"x1 3/4." I ran the green cardstock through the Cuttlebug with the Polka Dots embossing folder. I only glued down the two sides and bottom...you'll see why in a bit. ;) The squirrel is cut from Just a Note at 3 1/2." I used foam tape to adhere it to the card. I covered all the pink with cotton candy Stickles and used Glossy Accents on his nose and eyes. I used Accent Essentials to cut the "sun." It is cut at 3" and the inner layer is a circle cut at 2 1/2." I used the sun to create a hidden tag for a sentiment on the front of my card. That is why I didn't adhere the strip all the around. I used a Scrappy Moms Stamp to stamp the sentiment on my sun tag. I finished off the front of the card with three orange buttons, one of which was tied with light pink floss.
For the inside I cut some brown cardstock at 5 1/4"x4" and the polka dotted turquoise cardstock at 5"x3 3/4." I added a strip of brown cardstock, cut at 3 3/4"x1 1/4" and light green cardstock cut at 3 3/4"x1." I used a Fiskars stamp for this sentiment. The lollipop is cut from Just a Note at 2." I added cotton candy Stickles to the pink swirl of the lollipop.
I made this for the following challenges:
