Cricut Cartridge Challenge Day 17

Today's featured cartridge is Paper Pups. I wanted to find something different on the cartridge to create these cards. Both were created using the border feature and I also used Design Studio to create these borders. The first one is a flower border, colored with Copic markers and a layer of the Spica glitter pens. The border is layered with white linen cardstock punched with Effervescent Fiskars border punch, on top of another layer of white linen cardstock, embossed with Sizzix embossing folder from the Birthday set.

The second card was made using another shape from Paper Pups with the border feature, duplicated and welded in Design Studio. I colored the border with Copic markers, layered that on top of white cardstock embossed with Cuttlebug argyle folder. Greeting stamped on scalloped oval, layered with another oval, inked edges.

I guess the title is a bit confusing. I've been working on this challenge for 17 days, but I've used 25 of my 34 cartridges. I've got 9 more cartridges left. I plan to finish this challenge by July 1. I hope you return to watch me reach my goal!

Thanks for stopping by!
