I don't know about you but I just love cute mushrooms! I borrowed my girlfriend's new cricut lite cart, "Live Simply" and it has some really cute cuts on there.

Cartridge used: Live Simply; mushrooms and flower frame cut at 2".

I inked the edges of them (SU Really Rust, Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie,More Mustard), added some gel stitching and some stickles (Cinnamon, Old Paper).

I used 2 embossing folders. For the frames in the middle of the card I used the distressed stripes folder (and inked those with SU chocolate chip). I embossed the red border at the top with the spots and dots folder and smeared Cinnamon stickles on it to give it some depth.

The paper punch used here is from SU (scallop border). The ribbon is Martha Stewart and I also added some hemp twine.
