First E2 Card - Birthday Card & Weekly Circle Challenge

I made this card Saturday night using my new E2...woo hoo!!!  Ok, first of all let me tell you that I think I am in love!  No seriously, I do think I am really going to enjoy this machine.  There is definitely a learning curve, considering I just took it out of the box and started using it.  I think having the Imagine helps some but there were a lot of icons that I did not know how to use and things that I wanted to do that I could not quite figure out.  I was able to complete my project but I know once I read the manual and watch a few tutorials, things will go much faster.  Just a matter of learning what the different icons are for.

Ok, so I used two of the preloaded carts - Just A Note and American American Alphabet.  I cut the trifold card from Just A Note at 5 1/2".  I then created my own layers for the inside.  I added a little hand detail with the stitches and of course, blinged it up with Stickles....

I am also entering this card in the Circle Weekly Challenge which is to use "your creative Gift Card and Money Holder ideas. Using your Cricut create a gift card or money holder."   

I have quickly scanned through the new cart booklets and I really like these carts.  I will keep you guys posted as I play a little more.  If you have an E2, leave me a comment letting me know so I can definitely check out what your doing with your E2 as well.

Would love to hear what you think, so leave me a comment. 

Happy Monday....
