Hello everyone. I mentioned on Monday that I would be sharing a birthday card I made last weekend. The card is for my friend Ruth. I will be giving the card to Ruth today when she, my mom, and I have lunch.
Ruth would probably have preferred a card with a stamped bear. This card is a bit fussy for Ruth. But I have wanted to make this card for sometime, so like it not, this is Ruth's Birthday card.
I used Anna Griffin's Garden Cards and Embellishments cartridge to make this card. Actually there is a cut file for the card in the Design Space Cards section. I did have to add the banner pieces and the inside section to the card, but otherwise it was already designed for me.
I used a cream print Anna Griffin card stock for the base card and the additional flower bloom cuts. The additional peachy/pink and green card stock were made by Close To My Heart.
One of the things I am really learning to love about my Cricut Explore is it's writing capabilities. I love that I can select a font, size, and color and Explore does all of the work. It makes for quick personalized messages in cards. Above is my inside sentiment. On the back of the card I added the phrase - This is not just a card, it is also a hug! Again, it is super easy to add text with the Cricut Explore.
Do not forget that we have a Design Team call going at Bitten by the Bug 2. My friend Melanie Brown and I are sharing the team leader responsibilities and would love to have you join us. Bitten By the Bug 2 is the original Cricut challenge blog. We have a wonderful team of designers that we value greatly. To try out, send your three best projects to email@example.com.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope to be back later in the week with another project to share.
