This is a card I made for my friend Kelly. It's a large card, 5"x7" ... I wanted lots of room for that flower. I used the Kate's ABCs Cricut cartridge for the flower. I cut the layers at 3.5", 3", 2.5", 2" and 1.5", spritzed them all with Juneberry Wine Glimmer Mist and then scrunched them up a bit. There's a pop dot between each layer, so the flower has a lot of dimension. I added a self-adhesive pearl and finished it with leaves made using a Martha Stewart punch. The flower is layered over a a Bo Bunny chipboard swirl, a doily (inked with with Tim Holtz Antique Linen distress ink and Stampin' Up Champagne Mist shimmer ink), and a little pearl trim.
On the inside, I used a Verve sentiment stamp, added a Bo Bunny chipboard flower and a self-adhesive pearl, and layered this over the little extra piece of doily that I used on the front of the card.
I'm very happy with this one ... it's perfect for Kelly! Hope you like it too.
I live in a small town in central Missouri with my husband and three dogs. When I'm not at work, I can usually be found in my craft room working on a project or in front of my computer looking for ideas for my next project. While I've been crafting for years, I didn't start making cards until after I received my Cricut Expression as a Christmas gift in 2008. Since then, cardmaking has become my passion (some would say obsession)! Anyway you look at it, it's been wonderful. Thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment ... I'd love to hear from you.
