A Song Of Spring

 "Hello" Today I'm sharing a Cricut-Stamping fusion card that was published in Cricut magazine in March. There are a few key elements I used making this card that you can add to your technique arsenal. Lets start with a the imagined barrier that seems to loom over stampers, Cricut gurus and scrapbookers alike, and that is that  the three papercrafting styles don't mix. Its way past time to put that myth to rest, mixing a scrapbook title with a stamped sentiment is not only doable, its downright fabulous!
 How about using a Cricut designed frame as a card base? Those intricate lacy cuts in yellow are gorgeous, and would be stunning cut at 11" to create a layout background! Concentric cut shapes layered and framed create a nesting look that is super fast for stamped images, cards, and scrapbook pages as well.

If you love paper, {and I know you do} than push away any crosscropping stigmas you have about mixing styles,. Stampers, scrapbookers, and 3 dimensional artists all have a common bond. Paper, beautiful, thick, delicate, scrumptious paper!  If you want to expand your world beyond the limits, say "hello" to mixing, mashing, and making the most of all papercrafting supplies! Break a few rules, have a little fun, be a rebel and do it all!
