Mexican Folk Art Skull ATC

Created this Mexican Folk Art Skull ATC using the Ole Cricut cartridge I recently bought. Buying the Ole Cricut cartridge was the reason I had to upgrade my Gypsy & Cricut since I had not done so since Fall 2011. Used bright core'dinations cardstock colors. I even used 4 of punched out pieces. I framed the Skull using paper piercing technique with the Tim Holtz ruler that has paper piercing holes to paper pierce the shiny blue cardstock.

Cricut cartridge: Ole 3" Skull

2 1/2" x 3 1/2" Base core'dinations yellow cardstock
2 3/8" x 3 3/8" metallic blue shiny cardstock
core'dinations cardstock: orange, purple, red & yellow

Tim Holtz: 
ruler with piercing holes along with a stick pin to pierce holes
