We're A Pear Card

Hello! I have been having fun breaking in my new cartridges! For this card I used the pear from Preserves and the "we're a pear" phrase from Just Because Cards. I figured out that having the Gypsy will be helpful with the "just because" cards cartridge if you want to use the cuts for something other than with the specific card they go with. The cricut cuts them proportionately, so if you cut something at 3 inches it is TINY because it is supposed to fit on a 3 inch card. Get it? I think that made sense, LOL.
I cut the pear at 2.75 inches from Coredinations "Nostalgia" cardstock and the greens in that stack are PERFECT for the pear! I used my Gypsy to size the word art and it came out to be cut at 4.36 inches. The patterned paper is from the Nook and Pantry collection by Basic Grey. The ribbon and button twine are from papertreyink.com. LOVE their stuff!

I hope you're having a FABULOUS day! I am super excited for TV tonight...THE RETURN OF GLEE!!!! I don't know about you all, but I am a total GLEEK!!!!!! ;o)

HUGS!!! Nikki
