Hand Crafted Flower Pot Birthday Card using Cricut Expression
My husband bought me a Cricut Expression Machine for Christmas last year. I was and still am really stoked about it, although I haven’t really gotten into using it..yet. 🙂 I am still learning so I’m starting off small with projects like greeting cards.
I wanted to share with you a quick card that I made for my mom’s birthday.
I used the Stretch your Imagination cartridge and chose the “flower pot” shape.
I then used the card function and just really let it do everything for me.
I used yellow paper folded in half for the main card (I’ve been leaving my cards blank inside and just simply writing my message on them.
I then cut out the card on purple paper and glued that on top of the yellow.
It’s been a while since I made this one so I can’t exactly remember how I did the pink part around the flower, but I believe it was just a simple layer that I cut at the same size so it would fit nicely over top.
Finally, I used the Simply Sweet cartridge for the letters (all lowercase). I cut them individually on yellow paper and glued them on as you can see below. And Voila! Here is the finished product:
And as you can read by my post, it’s all about me…I…I…I… 🙂
