Throwback Thursday Challenge with My Creative Time!


For this week's My Creative Time Throwback Thursday Challenge, Emma asked us to create something using the Just Because Cards or Wild Card Cricut cartridges AND to include some embossing. I used Just Because Cards for mine. I began with a brown 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card base, but I trimmed 1/4" off of the front flap of the card and adhered a 5 1/2" green scallop behind it, to add a little interest. The cloud patterned paper is cut at 3 1/2" x 5 1/2".


This pick-up truck is one of my favorite cuts from Just Because Cards. I cut it at 5 1/2" and the embossed flowers at 8".


The cloud cut is from Create a Critter. I cut it at 2", making it just the perfect size for my stamp from the My Creative Time Turn That Frown Upside Down stamp set. This is a Throwback Thursday Challenge that you will want to enter by July 20th! Emma will be randomly selecting a winner who will receive all four of her new stamps sets that will be released on July 22nd! If you don't own Just Because Cards or Wild Card, don't worry. You can use any older cartridge!
