Tuesday Tutorial- Sponge Savers!

Just really quick moneysaving tip today! 
 Our sponges are $1.25 so a great deal to start with! But I make my dollar stretch be this simple trick!

 I use our Non-stick Microtip Scissors and cut the sponge in half!  I then cut that into as many pieces as I desire!  I usually get 8 triangles from each sponge!
 I ink up my sponge with whatever ink I desire to distress in, which in this case is black!
 I am trying to be sure the petals of this flower cut using the Artiste Cricut Cartridge from Yuletide Carol paper pop off the card!
 As you can see it is pretty subtle and you can adjust your inking to your taste or the needs of the project!
Pretty awesome how the flower pops!
And here is my finished card!  I added a stamp from the Noel Holiday stamp (C1598) and the Gold Bling Gem from the Bling Gems Assortment Gold!
