Hello everyone!
Im sooo excited to be part of the Scrapbookpal DT! This is the Very 1st ever DT for Scrapbookpal!!! :) Today I get to share with you my Postcard & Envelope made with the DARLING cartridge "Cindy Loo", when I received this cartridge I was soooo excited and Happy to get to work with this sweet cartridge.

Be sure to check out the Blog as the Scrapbookpal DT will have some AWESOME creations to share with you!!! HERE is a Link to the BLOG!!!
Supplies Used:

Cricut Expressions & Cindy Loo Cartridge
Cardstock: white 12x 12, black 12 x 12, dp(pick any to your liking), Dark Grey, and light Grey cardstock,green cardstock
Ribbon,flowers,stickles,Heart gems,gem butterfly,and swirl gem
Stamps(choose any)I used SU!,Our Daily Bread Designs
Adhesive-ATG700/Scotch /ATG gold transfer tape 1/2 inch
Memento Black Ink,Tim Holtz distress inks(Shabby Shutters(for branches),Vintage Photo(Cat)
Cuddlebug embossing folder-"Swiss Dots"
White Gel Pen(for Dots)
1st-cut your 12 x12 white at 5 1/2 (REAL SIZE DIAL ON) (FIT TO PAGE ON) key (FOUND ON PAGE 76 IN YOUR BOOK)this will cut the postcard and envelope for you
2nd- Cut your Dp(design paper) at 5 1/2 inch key and same features as above,this is for the inside of the envelope. Do the same for the black this will be for the back of the postcard! (WHEN YOU CUT THESE BE SURE TO LET IT CUT THE POSTCARD,THEN PUSH THE STOP BUTTON) otherwise you will have another envelope for each.
Black Cardstock cut 8 1/2 inch key (SAME AS ABOVE LET IT CUT THE POSTCARD,THEN PUSH STOP)
4th-White Cardstock cut at 7 3/4 inch for the next layer(follow steps above)
5th-White Cardstock cut at 7 inches for the next layer on the postcard! Same thing follow steps above.
Sentiment frames:
Black(for sentiment frame) cut at 4 1/2 inches
White(for the sentiment) cut at 4 inches
CAT(PAGE 58)Black cardstock cut at 3 inches (SHADOW FEATURE ON) this is for the base of the CAT (refer to page 58 in book)
Dark Grey cardstock cut at 2 3/4(SHADOW OFF) cat key
Light Grey cardstock cut at 2 3/4(LAYER BUTTON ON) cat key
White Cardstock cut at 2 3/4(LAYER BUTTON ON) cat key, this is for the inside piece to finish your cat!
Branches(PAGE 65)
Green Cardstock-(BORDER FUNCTION ON)
1st-press the tree button (for branch) cut at 1 inch(3 branches)
Now that you are done cutting your pieces you will want to emboss your 3 white frames for the postcard

I used the Swiss Dots cuttlebug embossing folder to do this. If you are wanting to add white dots to the black frames do that now,then put together you postcard as I did in picture above. If you are adding ribbon, you will want to add it, and then put the black frame on the back of your postcard! Next you can stamp your sentiment on the little white frame, and add the black frame to it.
Branches-you will want to add your stickles to them before you put your entire postcard together!
The Cat I used Vintage Photo ink to distress the cat pieces, then put the cat together. Add eyes(I used heart shaped gems for eyes, nose, and ears.
Once you are done with the Cat, Sentiment Frame, and your branches are dry, you can put your postcard together!

The envelope. I added the Design Paper Frame to the inside of the flap of the envelope. Then embellish your envelope as you would like. I really enjoyed making these! Hope you will try the cat and Postcard with Envelope too!!! Enjoy!
