I used the BRAND NEW Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 (TBBM2) Cricut cartridge to make this card.
I live the curved effect of the card, VERY different! I love it!


The card opens on the swirl line. The tags was also cut from TBBM2 at 2 1/2" the card was cut at 6 1/2"
The XOXO was cut at 1". I used echo park, yours truly paper collection.
The ribbon was actually Christmas ribbon and i used the Tim Holtz old paper distress ink to tone the white on the ribbon down to a creamy shade.
The coolest thing on my card (I think) is the XXXXXXXX pattern all over. I used the sew stamper while the ink was wet I sprinkled embossing powder and heat set it and now I have red, instead of the solid black that comes in the sew stamper. I used large 3-D glue dots to hold the silk ribbon on the card. I used the imaginisce ribbon sealer and cutter. It works like butter.
I used the K. Andrew designs Its Valentines stamp collect (if you comment here you can win a set of those stamps.)  I embossed it with silver metallic embossing powder.
This entire card was made with TBBM2. GREAT cartridge!
I have it in my store for only $35!!!

I have many cartridges for only $22, and I have 18 cartridges for $18, they are in the "On Sale and Special" category in my store.

Beautiful card, I just got the ribbon cutter and love it! I've been wanting the stitching stamps but didn't like the black only option, thanks for the tip. The TBBM2 is on my wish list, can't wait to get it.
