More and More Cut out Cricut Cards

Lots and lots and lots of cut out cards from my recently purchased Cricut cartridges. They are fun to create, ....a simple task of loading the cartridge, loading the paper and mat, select and cut...and then sit while it creates right in front of your eyes. The little side nick allows the perfect score mark to fold the card.  Then one has the choice of leaving the front of the card an open weave-work or placing a same-sized white (or color) backing. And most of the time I add a folded piece of white stationery paper for messaging. I usually emboss the front of each card which gives it a little texture.  Usually I add a little die cut to give the card a little bump up. These cards are fun and most of all allow me to use up the stacks and stashes, piles and shelves full of paper paper paper.  I am on a quest to whittle that down.  I may be 100 but I have a quest.  Please wish me well on the endeavor.
