Would You Guess Wednesday

Hello!! And welcome to another installment of Would You Guess Wednesday over at My Cricut Craft Room!! We, as the Design Team, use this day to focus on the feature buttons on the your Cricut overlays! There are a few other ways to do WYGW, but I think this is my favorite! I love using the feature keys & using my Cricut carts to their full advantage!! :) Here are some other ways of doing WYGW:

Would you guess… Wednesdays- On this day, there are 4 ways to do this day.

1. We use ONLY the features on the cartridges, this applies to all three ways to do this day
What this means is when you look at the handbook, you cannot use the main image on the left side of the page. But you can use ALL of the other features or layers.
2. Also you can use a CAKE cartridge to make a Paper creation.
3 On certain days we can use the same paper and see what everyone does with the same paper collection
4. You may also pick a 'partner'... Basically we partner up and use the same cartridge with the same pages, sizes and cuts.

So when you go to My Cricut Craft Room, you may see some of these other examples listed above! But I chose to use only the feature keys!

Today I decided to use Beyond Birthdays & make a "Congrats" card! Here is a pic of the handbook page I used & the 2 function keys I used are circled.
And here is the finished card...
The inside...

**When I first started cutting the "Congrats" part of this card, I had a brain hiccup & was cutting the "Shadow & Blackout Shadow" instead of the "framed image". Could not figure out why it wouldn't cut right! I had set my Cricut at "fit to page" to cut the card base which cut it at 9 1/2", so then I cut the "Congrats" at 9 1/2" and got this HUGE piece!! WHAT?? I tired to scale it down and cut it like 4 times before I realized my mistake!! DUH!! Need less to say I had tons of scraps flying around & actually used some them on the finished card!**

I used Stampin Up paper: Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi & Whisper White. I also used Beyond the Garden DSP from Stampin Up. I used and 8 1/2" x 11" and used "fit to page" to cut my card base. I cut the card base in Wild Wasabi & one sheet of DSP. Then cut off the front frame and adhered that onto the Wild Wasabi card. I cut the "Congrats" frame in Whisper White & Wild Wasabi. I used the Whisper White words & the Wild Wasabi frame. Out of the extra scraps from above (UGH!!) I used a Melon Mambo piece for a mat behind the words. Then cut the star (shift/framed) in Wild Wasabi. I added some opal bling to the corners that I got from Martha Stewart (The Birthstone Collection) 

Now after I finished this card & was putting away my mess, I found some pieces that I had cut while trying to figure out the "Congrats" fiasco earlier! I had actually cut one perfect for inside of the frame so here is another pic with the extra image!
So even out of disasters come new ways to do the card!  Remember: There are no mistakes in crafting...only room for embellishments!! :)

I hope you enjoyed this Wold You Guess Wednesday! Head on over to My Cricut Craft Room to see what some of the other DT members have designed for you today!
