Dear followers, friends, bloggers and all who stop by to my work...
I started the Wild Card Series with Lisa back on January 1st, 2010 with the Scallop Card.
Lisa contacted me after I made a comment on her blog asking if we can do a series together and that is how all started. Lisa couldn't finish all the cards because personal reasons but we together did most of them, one by one.
I contacted Lisa last week for the Finale of the series to see if she was up to one more but she is not going to be able to. I was looking forward to her response because I think it would have been nice if she could have joined me on this last one, which happens to be the envelopes but this would have given us a free will to make any card we wanted.

At the end of this month my term with Robyn aka My Pink Stamper as one of her designers,
will come to an end.
It was my first Designer Team experience and I learned a lot from it and I am very grateful to Robyn for giving me the opportunity to be one of the first ones on her first Design Team. It was an honor and I had lots of fun. Check the above MPS link to know the requirements to apply to be an MPS designer.
Good Luck and have fun.

So...I am done with the Wild Card series and done with Robyn almost at the same time. Ironic? or Coincidence? or a new window of opportunities? I do not know. I take one day at a time. I still have some projects to do as a MPSDT designer and then I will hopefully have a bit of extra time for my blog and maybe do some fun things with you guys. Let's see!

Now...I will introduce my last card and envelope from the Wild Card cartridge Series...

My Envelope
9.25W by 6-1/8"H
and the card I made for the envelope.
I used a Martha Stewart punch for the envelope. 
It is a big envelope...It needed to be big for the Grand Finale, LOL.
I used  the same paper I used for the card background. 

My Card
8-3/4W by 6"H
 The fire truck is from the Independence Day Summer Collection seasonal cartridge and using my Gypsy and Expression I cut it at 4.50"H by 8.75"W and the layer came out to be 4.5"H by 8.44"W. I welded the I heart USA onto the ladder and I used very fine glitter to cover the heart. I also draw some doodles dots.That little blue star you see on the flag it was not supposed to be there...it is from when I did the corners and I punched it with a star punch. I did not realized when I took the photos it was there, lol.

On this photo you can see the small compartments on the fire truck opening up and you also can see the tires centers had been popped-up and a rhinestone added. You also can see an MPS clear stamp "Celebrate Today" from the Sweet Occasions set stamped with a Colorbox pigment ink. The card base is no other than a white textured American Crafts cardstock. the edges have been distressed on it and inked as I inked the truck too.

This word is from the same Independence Seasonal cart and I made a shadow layer in red but it's hard to see. The cart does not have a layer for this word. I cut this at 1.75"H and the width came out to be 4.41". I had to play a bit with it to get the shadow the right size. 

I hope you enjoyed our series and like I said I am planning to do some fun things with you/for you guys.

Thanks for being there with me all the way and I know I inspired some of you because I read all of your  comments and that does makes me happy.

to all.

NOTE: I joined the Cricut Circle (Agnes is covering her ears, lol)

    to do to the doodle dots and slashes.

  7. Wow Agnes! What a GRAND finale to your fabulous series. Your patriotic card is wonderful and so full of details. Would love if you chose another cart and did the same thing. (I could use a bit of inspirations of the many I've recently bought and haven't touched yet. LOL) Can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve. (P.S. I did too :D ) xxD

  8. Love the card. Thanks for the inspiration. Can't wait to see what you have in store for us.

  10. Agnes, Thank you and Lisa for doing the wild card series. It was fun to see what you came up with. I can't wait to see what you take on next. How about Just because cards?

  11. Wow Agnes This is perfect for your grand finale! Love the colors as always, my fav red. Love all the little compartments and what a grand size it is! Can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve next, I'm sure it will be something exciting, and congrats on joining the circle, if I had the extra cash I might have also, I just wish it was a little more affordable. I would love to have the first cart, looks grand! Who knows there's still a couple of weeks, maybe I can win the lottery by then! Heck I'd pay for a couple of people then! LOL ((Hugs)) and take care! Theresa
