Card - Grandmother - Flowers Have Sun

I remember seeing this saying somewhere a few months back and thought it was a nice sentiment. I can't recall if it was actually for a Grandmother or not, but that's how I opted to use it. It was also helpful that I had photos of flowers from the flower beds over the past year and the new Cricut with an also new Alphalicious cartridge. I took some Astrobrights paper and just let it cut various flowers from fully covered mat boards for an afternoon and just divided them by size into clear containers until time to create the card last night. It allowed the process to go a lot faster.

Supplies list:
  • Cricut - George cart - flowers (1", 1.25", 1.5")
  • Cricut - Alphalicious cart - lettering (1")
  • Paper trimmer for square background papers (1.5")
  • Marvy Clever Level Craft Punch LV-SJCP42 Square for photos (2" diagonal cut)
  • Card base - 8.5x11 - Royal Crafts Sonburn II Cover Stock Earthtones collection

  • Brads (only used on two front cut flowers)
  • Making Memories Mini Square Tropic Item #26112 key lime
