Here is my first project:
I cut the card/tab from page 46 of the manual at 4 1/5 in. using 6x11 inch cardstock. I used the shift key to create the striped scallop and then popped it off the front of the card with some dimensionals. I cut brown Bazzill cardstock to fit the window and adhered it to the inside of the card. It made a nice mat for the inside message. For a little bit of an added touch, I also added some linen thread and tied a bow around the frame.
The owl is from page 42 of the manual and is cut at 2 1/4 in. I used ivory (off white) Bazzill cardstock for the base of the owl and then pattern paper (Cosmo Cricut) for the owl's body. I then cut out all the layer 1 images and the flower from the layer 2 key. I added a little bling to the flower :)
for the inside of the card.... I added some ivory cardstock to the brown that was used over the window and added a panel to the other side as well. I then cut the flower (2 in.) using the button key on page 42.
