2013-03-06 Fancy monogram card


I started out trying to cut out a free web designed scalable vector graphic (SVG) with my Cricut. It’s been cutting things just fine, but today it decided to poop out and told me that my software/firmware was out of date. Some people maybe able to fix it, but I’m not one of them. In order to see if my Cricut would still cut from a cartridge (Tie the Knot) I cut out some monograms. That worked fine so I decided to make lemonade out of lemons. Be happy with what I have and move along.

Here is the monogram card I made using ready made flowers from my glass jar, Scrapbook papers, an old office folder (card base and some layers) and die cuts (Memory Box & Nestabilities)

I pulled this flower out of the glass jar I keep on my table. I can usually find a flower that will work (color-wise) on my projects and make a card quickly. The little cream flowers are plastic and were purchased on a stem with lots of them, made to look like babies breath.

The monogram was cut from the Cricut Cartridge, Tie the Knot. I’ve cut this before and I love the swirls.

This card was quite quick to make, I put it all together from start to finish before I left for work this morning. Not only did I put it together, but I photographed it and wrote a blog post. How’s that for quick?

I also added this to my entry for Flutter by Wednesday challenge. My 2nd Ever!

    This turned out very pretty. You did a very good job and in not much time either. Way to go!

    Back when I used to get up and go to work I always got up two hours or more before I had to leave and I still always felt like I just made it out the door in time! LOL!! So, I’m very impressed that you could make this whole card before you left for work. I might manage getting the already made flower out of the jar, but every thing else would have to wait until I got home! 🙂 That monogram letter is so pretty!

    Oh and since we just “talked” about the Cricut programs I’m so sorry to hear that they go out of date! What a drag!

    Lovely card and oh so elegant with the swirls and flowers. I bet your free SVG file was created after the SCAL/Cricut settlement date so the SVG file has an embedded filter/cookie that verifies your Cricut software is also updated with a date subsequent to the SCAL/Cricut settlement. Bummer.
