My First Card Using Suburbia!

My Suburbia cartridge arrived almost a month ago and I've been waiting for it to be included in an update for Design Studio so that I could use it.  I never use my Expression without Design Studio and have pretty much forgotten how to use it unless I do use Design Studio.

The software provides a virtual Cricut mat and I know exactly how large the image is going to be, how it will fit onto an A2 card front,  and how many I can squeeze onto a single sheet of cardstock.  Truly, I do not know how anyone can use their Cricut cutters without it!

The fan is on page 60 in the Suburbia handbook.  It was cut at 3 1/2" and pop dotted for dimension.
The sentiment I used is sort of lame but it's all I could come up with since I was in such a hurry to play with the cartridge!

Now that I'm certain the cartridge works well in Design Studio, I'll spend some more time selecting images and make some more cards!

Neat card. Love the black,gray & orange color combo. I think your sentiment is cute with the image! (guess I like 'lame'?) Anyway, a very pretty card, and TFS.
