1st French Manor Card


My Cricut Circle box finally arrived today! I really wasn't sure about the French Manor cartridge, but I was excited to see the exact chair from my parents' dining room set. I immediately cut it out, but then had no idea what to do with it. Luckily, I finally came up with something! Because of the size of the chair, I ended up making a pretty big card (7 3/4" x 5 1/2") that fits in an old unused Christmas card envelope.

Recipe:
(all materials Papertrey Ink, unless otherwise specified)

Cricut Cartridges: French Manor (table and chair), Walk in My Garden (vase and tulips), and A Child's Year (teacup)
Cardstock: Stamper's Select White, Vintage Cream, Dark Chocolate, New Leaf, and Plum Pudding
Patterned Paper: scraps from various DCWV stacks
Ink: Chai, Dark Chocolate, and Plum Pudding
Stamp Set: Tea for Two
Recollections Brads
Tea for Two Collection Die
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder for the beadboard

Here is a picture of the inside and a close-up of the front:
