Yep, I used the Cricut for these! The pear cuts are from Joys Of The Season and I think they really set off the images nicely.
I went with some K & Company Wild Saffron paper for the cards. *okie uses a very sad voice* I think I have almost used up the last of that pack, actually I had bought two of the packs a few years ago. I even bought a third to do a giveaway on my blog long ago.
I used borders from my border stash and inked the them with some Chestnut Roan.
On the vintage label for this one I went over part of the lettering with Diamond Stickles. I like how it makes the lettering stand out more. I double matted the labels. I used the Perfect Layers 1/8" edge to make the mats. OMG! I SO LOVE PERFECT LAYERS!!
You can also see where I did do the faux stitching on the pear and leaf. I wasn't going to use the shadow cut but after trying it on the card I thought it made the pear stand out more.
This label was a little larger and I do like the pears on there, but they are more the color of oranges to me. On some of the lettering on this label I used a Sakura Stardust Glitter clear pen. If you haven't tried some of these you really should! They come in a pack of two and I think they are only maybe about $2.
These Graphic 45 cards are super simple guys, so if you have a chance to pick up a sheet of this paper I highly recommend it!
