This Storybook Cricut card
was made for my friend Heather.
I just love all the scrolls and intricate designs on the
Storybook cartridge, so I had to try this one out. The
embellishment in the middle was made using a stamp I had that said
I enhanced the stamped paper clipping by
covering it with ultra thick embossing powder and giving it a glossy
appearance with my heat gun. To see how I made this card,
