2015-04-07; Scrappling size; Cricut Lovely Floral; Flower #6 and Bird

2015/04/07

I made some cards using the Cricut so I could take them to a girlfriends house to show her some ideas of what could be made using a Cricut. Today’s sample is a Scrappling size card. I used the Cartridge Lovely Floral and cut the flourish (Flower #6) at 3.5″. The bird was cut at 1″.

The bird was cut at 1″ twice; once with “no shift” and the 2nd time “with shift”. This statement will make sense if you have the instruction manual in front of you. I textured using a stylus, added 3-d black paint for the eye and real feathers for the tail.

The flower was cut using Spellbinders Anemone. This was cut from a book page that had been painted with gesso and then dipped into distress inks. The center sentiment is by Hero Arts (mini messages) and punched out using a 3/4″ circle. I stacked 3-4 of the circles and then coated the top layer with Mod Podge. The background leaves are a Martha Stewart punch.

And one more look at the card before you go on about your day. T dots around the flourish are just a black gel pen that I added randomly. They looked a little harsh so I added some glitter glue on top to soften the look. The bottom panel was punched using a jumbo Martha Stewart punch called “embroidery,” and the top butterfly also by Martha Stewart was punched from white iridescent paper and stacked using 3-d mounting tape.

Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to let me know your opinion on the Cricut cards; keep the machine out and use it or go back to rubber stamping?

    You can get some great designs using the Cricut. My daughter has one but I’m sticking with stamping and dies. 🙂 This is a cute card though……love that little bird!
