Cricut Flower Greeting Card

It was certainly a busy week at my paying job.  I worked a few extra hours so I could have an extra long holiday weekend, but that took me away from my craft room until today.  I was able to sped the afternoon at my wonderful friend Norma's and I ended up casing a card I found in her stash.  Later this weekend I'll make some cards with the items she and I worked on.

Here is today's card. 
 I used my Cricut today.  I used the cartridge George Basic Shapes for the flower.  It was cut at 3 3/4" on Chocolate Chip cardstock.
 I used 3/4", 1", and 1 1/2" circle punches in Bermuda Bay, Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery, and Melon Mambo
 The piece of Melon Mambo cardstock eas run through my dot embossing folder and measures 4 1/4 x 3"
 I used a clear circle button with a 1" circle below is in Certainly Celery.  The Bermuda Bay circle is 1 1/2"
 I stamped the sentiment from the Small Script set by Stampin Up!
Here is one final look at the card.


  1. Love the embossing and how you added a button and ribbon to the flower.

  2. Oh, I LOVE this!!! What wonderful colors together and they're all so pretty and bright! Fabulous card.

  3. Bold and beautiful! The sentiment adds a nice contrast.
