Cricut Circle Magazine Challenge - Use Cricut Craft Room

Wow! I cannot believe it has been 3 months since I have posted anything! I have done a few projects in that time, but haven't had the time to post them - I will try to catch up on posting them soon!  Today I have my entry for the Cricut Circle Magazine Challenge.

The Challenge: We want to encourage you to play with the Cricut Craft Room™design tool, so this month we are using it as part of our challenge! We want you to create a project of your choice with the Cricut Craft Room™design tool. 

Materials needed:
Assorted Papers
Pre-made Card Base
Pop-Up Sticker Squares
Terrifically Tacky Tape
i-Rock Gem Setter and small gems
Silver pen
Pebbles Inc. Chalk
Printer and pink ink
Cricut Cartridges: Sweethearts

I made this card for my friend's bridal shower in a week.  I started by cutting all the pieces from Sweethearts cartridge.  I had to use Craft Room (or Gypsy) to remove some of the parts from the plate areas (they have hearts in them that you need to tell it not to cut) so I had solid plats and not "Just Married" plates.

I used my Bow-Easy to make this bow and used Terrifically Tacky Tape to attach it.

I used my i-Rock gem setter to add some of the smallest gems to the plate and bumper areas to give it a little bling.  I used a silver pen to add some detail on the top of the car.

For the plate, I used my printer to add E & A (their first initials).  I then used some chalk to edge it.  I added some twine around the grey base and some gems to the top.  To attach them I used pop-up squares in between each layer.

For the lights, I used glue and made it 3D then added glitter.  They dried pretty well, but took a long time.

What do you think?
