Elegant thank you card made using the NEW Mother's Day Bouquet mini.

Hello, everyone!!

I had such a great little blog vacation, but I am so glad to be back posting projects for you guys today!! I hope you all had a wonderful and safe holiday! It is still so hard to believe it is 2011. I made well over 300 projects last year with my cricut and I would imagine I will make that plus some this year, so stay tuned. Joy and I have some great things up our sleeves for this next year. You are not going to want to miss it!

The beginning of a new year means the start of a diet for me. I have been mentally getting prepared for it for a few weeks now. Fingers crossed it goes well. I am very determined!

On to the flower card....It have to tell you that the Mother's Day Bouquet mini is just one of the best mini's so far! I just love flowers and this cartridge has no shortage of beautiful ones! You can just layer these cuts so many ways and make yourself a paper flower garden that is so beautiful to look at and fun to make!


I cut the flowers the layers out at 3 1/2", 3", and 1". The leaf is cut at 2".
This stamp and paper are from Papertrey Ink.


Photobucket
I added a button in the middle to add just a little more sweetness to the card.
I got the yummy ribbon from a quaint little shop in Waxahachie, TX.

Thanks so much for dropping by today! Make sure to stop by tomorrow and check out the fabulous project Joy has for you! I just love everything she makes!

Make sure you stop by my blog today too because I have a card posted made using the NEW Best of Pixar cartridge. I just love that cartridge!! click here ==> Courtney Lane Designs

Have a wonderful week!!
 

Be sure and check out Joy's and Melanie's personal blogs for more creative goodness at Obsessed with Scrapbooking and Courtney Lane Designs! Have a great day!

I am a new cricut user (just got mine a few days ago). I was searching around for things to create with my new cricut and came across this blog.. I love the fact that the cards you make with the cricut are not the plain old cards you buy in the stores.. They are so much more.. This is really a beautiful card.. I can't wait to try it myself.. Thank you so much for sharing this..

dianne said...

Very Pretty! I would not have thought to use those papers for a flower(different colors, same design) love it :)
I've followed you ladies(Joy, Melanie & Tammy) since the beginning of "Christmas with the Cricut". I'm so thankful that you all have shared your Talents with me. May God bless each one of you in 2011 :-)
