Just Because!

I didn't get any new cartridges for Christmas, so I decided to go with one of my Favorite Cartridges. I just love, "Just Because Cards," because it is so easy to use. All the planning and ideas have already been done, you just need to copy the picture and you have a cute card.




I did three cards that are some of my favorites. The "Thanks a Melon" card, "Cute As A Bug" card," and "DogGone good" card. These cards are so simple.



Supplies Needed:



Just Because Cards Cricut Cartridge

Black, Red, White, and Green, Card Stock

Black and White Polk a Dot Patterned Paper

Three different sizes of Black Polk a Dot Ribbon

Adhesive and Glue Dots

Pop Dots

Ribbon Glue
