2013-05-12 Happy Mother’s Day to you!

I rarely use the Cricut electronic die cutting machine but when I saw this wonderful card on line, I had to dust off the machine and see if my cutter would cut it out. It is called a “bendy card” and I love their simple elegance. I am happy to say that my cutter did indeed cut out. However; I do think I need a new blade ;-) I didn’t really change anything except the size…I made scaled it down to fit on and 11″ piece of white card stock.

I used scotch tape and some Art Institute glitter to add color and glimmer to the leaves and flowers.

And so you can see the dimension of the card here is an angle view. Aren’t these fun?

The file was a free download SVG from Bird’s Cards Blog and can be found HERE. I just recently found this blog and look forward to going through the archives to see what other wonderful designs are there. I thank the designer for sharing the files so freely!

Fine print: In order to cut this design you must have a digital cutter, a software program (ie: make the cut or sure cuts a lot), computer and the downloaded file. Lucky for me I have all of the items thanks to my family and the gifts they have given me!

Edited to add: I made this card about 2 months ago and I am sad to say that my Cricut has since stopped cutting SVG files. :-( However; it still does cut from a cartridge so you will some some Cricut designs in the future.
