Cricut Flower Card Project

dec08-009This is a card I made with the George cartridge on the Cricut Expression maachine today.

Out of Blue 12 x 12 inch card I cut 4 different size flowers ranging from 2.5, 2.75, 3, 3.25 inches for the large flower, and 5 different size flower ranging from 1, 1.25, 1.5, 1.75, 2 inches for the small flower, I then rubbed over them with a pink inkpad, and then curved them to make them look more realistic and them fastened them together with Dovecraft Fairy brads.

I glued silver rick rack ribbon to the card with art institute glue and stuck the flowers over the top of the ribbon using Pinflair glue gel to help them keep there shape.

Cut out a 1 inch Thankyou in light pink card and then the shadow background in hot pink card.Stick these together and then stick over the ribbon.

Cut the card front around the shape of the flowers, and then stick a matching piece of stripy pink paper to the inside back of the card so it shows at the front.

I made this on the cricut expression machine which does have 1/4 inch sizes but this could be done just as easily on the original cricut just increase your flower sizes by 1/2 inches instead
