Laugh, Love, Learn, Live...

Hi guys!  I am so excited to share my card with you today! 
Do you see that background and the popped-up embellishment!?  I made those and I am just in love with them!  I will say that the background is very delicate and though it cuts perfectly with my Silhouette Cameo, I do not think Cricut will be able to handle the delicate areas.  You also have to use great care when removing it from the Cameo mat.

Here are my designs:
 I sized the Circle and frame to 2"  to work perfectly with the PSA Stamps :)

You can get the Circle Label the background design HERE

I used my Xyron 2" Cheetah Runner to place adhesive on my background.  This adhesive goes on in small dots and since it rolls so smoothly, it is perfect for delicate cuts!  I use the adhesive runner on my Ranger craft mat so I can easily remove any excess glue.

Once I have my background covered, I simply add it to a 5-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base.

To adhere my ribbon, I used my 1.5" Xyron Create-a-Sticker "X" machine!   

 I love how easy this machine makes adhering my ribbons...I just pull it off the sticker sheet and apply!

I am so excited to see that your Cameo was able to cut your background. I know my cricut would have made shreds out of it!! Your card is just beautiful and the background sets off the other elements just perfectly.
