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 It’s been cutting things just fine, but today it decided to poop out and told me that my software/firmware was out of date.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.
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!
