Cartridge Exploration- Plantin Schoolbook and George

Over at the Chirper Challenge we were given the task to explore cartridges that most people would have, the 1st ones up were Plantin Schoolbook, George and Basic shapes and Don Juan. Here is what I came up with....

This "thanks" card is strictly from George. I cut the flowers at two different sizes (1 and 1 1/2) on cream cardstock and the THANKS is cut at 1 1/4 with the shadow feature in blue. I inked the edges with CTMH- star spangled blue, added some cute yellow rhinestone bling from Kaiser Crafts and called it done. I think this was a super easy card and just wanted to show that you don't need a bunch of different cartridges to make a quick project or card.Here is another view so you can see the rhinestones "sparkle" :)

This project was entirely from Plantin Schoolbook. I decided to go with the round bag cut on the tall ball feature. This was cute at 10 on some cute paper from Costco. I also used the same paper to cute the tag at 2 and the "4" and "U" at 1. Then I flipped the tag around to use the solid side of the paper and made stitch marks with my white Uniball pen. I tied on some sheer light blue and solid white ribbon and I used pop dots under the 4 and U. (sorry this picture is a bit blurry)
here is another view and a better picture too. Enjoy!
