Tulip thank you card made using the *NEW* Freshly Picked Cricut cartridge

Hello, friends! This is Melanie and today I have a card I made using the *NEW* Freshly Picked cartridge and Bella BLVD paper. I just love this cartridge!! It has some really great gardening images on it and if I was not always crafting I would garden. Maybe with this cartridge I can do it vicariously through paper.

On this card, I did not cut one of the regular cuts. Instead I cut one of the layers and just cut it big. I cut it at 6 1/2" to be exact. This tulip head is supposed to go with the tulip and bulb cut, but I like it all by itself. I also cut the leaves which are the base/shift cut at 3". Then I just assembled the tulip how I wanted it on the card.


Ok this is a 5" x 5" card. I used a Martha Stewart punch around the page punch for the focal point.


I used Papertrey Ink stamps and ribbon.




Here is the tulip and bulb cut I was talking about. I cut it at 1 3/4". I thought it would be perfect for the inside of the card.


Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are enjoying all of the projects this week made with the new cartridges!

P.S don't forget about our fantastic giveaway this week! We are giving away 4 of the new cartridges to ONE lucky winner!

What a great card! I must say though, the tulip on the inside of the card looks like its a little alien plant walking away in the card hahahaha :):) its either that or my imagination has gone wild again :)
