  2. I like this card and your choice of colors too! I think you'll find a person to give it to before too long. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us. I am looking to make some of the #2 cards for a gift set of cards for my sisters...

  5. I love what you did with the card, the colors and all. I don't like the idea of it though. I would never send this card to someone who was in a pickle because it is usually not a good thing if you are in a pickle. I would feel like you were laughing at them saying In A Pickle? HEHEHE, almost rubbing it in. That's just my opinion though.

  6. Thanks Christina. It is an odd type of card. I was thinking I could use it for someone who is pregnant of course without the words!

  7. Love the colors of your card. Not sure when this card would be appropriate, but it's cute nonetheless!

  8. I too agree, Christina. I don't like the card but you made it cute nonetheless. The pickle paper is very pretty! And the extra layer really added to it. As usual your color combinations work so well. I think there will be more than one challenge on this cartridge!
    Thanks so much for sharing yourself with us!

  16. Wait until canning season to use the card. When a garden giveth, it sometimes gives too much. A person could be canning pickles -a lot of pickles. Then you could send them the card. LOL!

  21. Cute card--even though you didn't like it--sounds like the most of us did! Thanks for this series--just got the cartridge!

  22. Well I'm not sure I would send this card to anyone that is in a pickle unless they have a great sense of humor.
    thank you

  23. I love the paper you chose for the pickle. If you had a college age child it would be a great card to send them money in. Then maybe they would get the message that not budgeting their money gets them in to a pickle. I don't know if it would work but it might make the parent feel better. LOL

  24. I love the paper and the stitching, but maybe it's the words that put me off. Oh well, now you're prepared!

  25. Too funny that no one likes this pickle card ... I bought the cart BECAUSE of the pickle! My sister is obsessed with pickles ... pickle xmas ornaments even! So I will make many pickle things just for her. What can I say, she's a kook!

  27. Oh my gracious, that pickle card is just way too cute... not sure how I would use it either, but you certainly make it look like a fun card. Thank you!!!

  28. As always, great video, and it makes me really want a gypsy - hey we all have to challenge ourselves from time to time, right? I appreciate your honesty about this not being your favorite - we don't always love everything. TFS!

  29. Christina, this would be soooo cute to give to someone who just found out they were having a baby. You know ( I need pickles) Corney but cute. jeansaporito@yahoo.com

  30. I had a french Canadian friend a few years back. She told me a story about needing a 'pickle' ornament for her christmas tree. I can't remember what the story was but it took her quite a while to find one. This pickle card would have been perfect for her! lol
    But I agree, it definately needs a particular reason.

  31. I found the pickle ornament in a Christmas shop in Stoneharbor, NJ. The tradition is to hide the ornament in the branches of the xmas tree & the first child to find the ornament (hard, because it's green!) receives an extra gift. Can't remember the country of origin or why a pickle, but that's the story ;)

  34. i have a friend considering 2 job offers right now and this card would be perfect, i might include a favourite box of tea to go along with it =, with the inside of card reading ...maybe a soothing cup of tea may help! or a gardener with a bumper crop of pickles, happens all the time with new gardeners, so include a gift of pickling spices and a favourite recipe!!!

  35. I'm with you on this one I have no clue who I would give a card like this.

    Though I must say it does look pretty cute!

  36. I LOVE your cricut cartridge series! thank you so very much for doing them! I recently received the Wild Card and Just Because Cards and am so excited to have your tips!
    I like the idea someone else showed - punching out shapes from the base layer (in this card - the pink card stock) where it's covered by the top layer, so you at least get some more use out of the part of the paper that's never seen because it's sandwiched between the card and the top layer. Just a tip I bet you know about but thought I would share anyway!
    Thanks for your great website!!
