Cricut's New "Creative Cards"

Today, I used the new Cricut cartridge, "Creative Cards".  I made the first card on the cartridge which is the birdcage card.  I didn't realize it was a tri-fold card - what a great surprise!!

Here is the front of the card, cut at 5 1/4 inches or just press "fit to page" feature on your expression and it will automatically cut at 5 1/4 inches. 
here is the inside flap.  You can add a small sentiment below so it will not be seen when the card is closed.
and here is the card totally open for you to write.  You can cut two of the mats and mount it to the right side also if you wanted to :). 

I watched a youtube video on someone that made this into a swing card.  I believe she did this in the Cricut Craftroom or possibly with her gypsy.  She widened the opening and made the birdcage a little smaller and hung it with a brad so it swung through the opening.  Very cute version.   You could cut the birdcage out in black to make it look like a wrought iron cage also. 

All in all I think it came out cute.  The cartridge also has a coordinating envelope to cut for this card.

Hope you like it.
