Playing With My Christmas Gift

I got a Cricut Expressions for Christmas - an electronic die cutting machine- totally unexpected. The machine works with cartridges and can cut anywhere from 1/4 inch to 24 inches. I am not totally new to the machine as Hollie (Hollie's House of Hugs) has one and I have spent time playing with hers both for card/scrapbooking and for bulletin board stuff at school.

Now on to the card above. See that wagon. I used a piece of medium chipboard/cardboard leftover from some packaging and cut it out using the Paper Doll cartridge. After it was cut out, I inked it up with Riding Hood Red ink and popped it on the card using stampin' dimensionals.

Happy Creating!
