Cards Won't Go To Your Hips

I DO NOT own a Cricut Cake. I WILL NOT own a Cricut Cake (famous last words, I know)! I keep reading in my Cricut circles about all the delicious and decadent cakes and cookies that are being created with this new Cricut Cake fondant cutting machine... WHO IS EATING ALL THESE CAKES AND COOKIES!?! For my own sanity and waistline, this is one gadget that this gadget girl will have to pass on. But that doesn't mean I can't enjoy those wonderful Cake images in my own way. So here is my SUPER SIMPLE "Thanks a Bunch" card that I made using my new Holiday Cakes cartridge. YES! The cake cartridges work in a regular Cricut machine just like any of my other cartridges and the Cake cartridge uploaded to my Gypsy perfectly fine.

I can't speak about all the other Cake cartridges, but this particular cartridge has some really amazing round frames (like the lace-like one that is pictured) as well as awesome borders and images. Pictured here is the pumpkin image I cut along with some bows I made to go on a Halloween card I'm making. BTW... any Halloween enthusiasts like myself will LOVE the adorable Halloween images on this cart along with "Happy Halloween" which is done in a few awesome fonts. AND if the time ever comes that I want to use any of the Cake cartridge images to cut fondant or gum paste for cake decorating, I'm just going to have to use a paper cut-out as a stencil. Better yet, why don't I just cancel the idea of cake all together and stick with super cute cards!!! They are a lot less fattening!
