Neglected Cartridge Challenge - Fantabulous Cricut

The challenge is to use a cartridge that you have not used in the last 6 months. I decided to make an envelope album using one of the envelopes from the Wild Card cartridge. I used the envelope on page 63 and cut 8 of them to fit to page (12 X 12).

I then manually cut two pieces of paper to make the outside cover. I glued them together with a ribbon running between them, so the album could be tied shut.

The hinges were cut from Fabulous Finds, another neglected cartridge of mine. I distressed them with Tim Holtz distress inks. I also inked around the edges of the envelopes and cover with gold ink.

Finally, I embellished the album with a few gem stones, some stickers and stamped it with gold ink.
