Welcome back card

Yesterday I received the Damask Decor cartridge as part of a bundle from Cricutmachine. Actually I was expecting a different cartridge and to be completely honest, I didn't want this cartridge at all. I couldn't be more wrong about it! Now I am delighted with it!... It has great cards and envelopes that are really easy to cut!!!!!! and the best thing is that with two cuts you have a wonderful card done!!!! I haven't imagine my self saying this, but I think this cart will became one of my favorites.
I made this card today in a rush... the most time consuming thing was to select the papers I wanted to use.
I cut this at 3.80 with my gypsy. A wonderful thing about this cartridge is that once you choose the size of the card, both layers will fit perfectly and so does the envelope!!! You don't have to figure out your envelope size once you have the size of your card. (another reason why I am loving this cart)
I made a small trick on this card because I wanted the background white and I only had 81/2" x 11" white card stock, and I had the front already cut when I realize that, so I had to modify the card base with my Gypsy girl. I welded two "Layer 1" with the internal shapes hidden (easy!)
The tag is from Home Accents cut twice with the shadow and the blackout features. The generated the sentiment with my computer and printed it over the white layer.
I cut the envelope at the same size (3.80 with my Gypsy) and you can cut the damask design with the silhouette feature to decorate the envelope, but I was out of time so I used the negative of the front cut to decorate the envelope. (I think it came out OK)

I hope you like this one.
If you feel like you want to make me happier, do not hesitate in leave me a comment... I LOVE comments!
