It's time to look those ole winter blues straight in the eye and make something out of them ! That's the theme this week at SweetSassyDiva ... make any type project that uses the Cricut and blue as the main color.
I pulled out an old favorite and two new cartridges for this card. The card base is from Wild Card and is cut at 4.75. I set it up on my Gypsy so I could hide the score marks.
I added dots and accented the swirl cuts with my white gel pen.
The rosette is from Ribbon and Rosettes, sized at 1.5". I welded 3 together and then 2 together. I probably could have used two cuts of the 3 welded pieces to make it just a bit fuller. I will try that next time. I punched a 1" circle from the Ballet Blue and one of the flowers from the Baja Punch from Stampin Up added a tiny flower brad to the center and hot glued it to the rosette. I cut a strip of white .75" x 11" to make the band and glued the rosette to the center.
To recap the supplies need for this card:
Cricut cartridges - Wild Card, Ribbon and Rosettes and Paper Trimmings.
Card stock - Ballet Blue - Stampin Up , White - Walmart, Patterned - DCWV
Punches - Stampin Up - 1" Circle, Baja Flowers
Birthday Stamp - Stampin UP
Ballet Blue Ink - Stampin Up
White Gel Pen - Sakura
I hope you don't let the winter blues get you down, but instead inspire you to be creative!!!
Happy Crafting !
