Bloom, Tulip Easel Card Cut File

Hi Everyone, well my birthday passed and I received some wonderful gifts, a gypsy which comes with Gypsy Wandering and Gypsy Fonts and since it was an HSN bundle it came with Destinations too, plus two lite cartridges, Bloom and Lacy Labels. For this card I used the Bloom Cartridge, it's such a great cartridge I highly recommend it.

I welded two 4 7/8 shadow tulip shapes together in Design Studio, (I wanted it to be slightly smaller then the actual front tulip). After cutting it out I folded it in half, the tulips should line up. I measured from the bottom of one side 2 1/4 and folded, this is where you will attach the front full layered tulip. For the front full layer I cut out all cuts of the tulip at 5". You can find the DS cut file here

Here is a side view of the card, you can see how the finished tulip is attached to the card.

And here is the front view not opened up.

Father's Day Sailboat Folded Paper Frame

Hi everyone, tonight I made this easel card for my husband, he loves our boat so much. For the folded paper frame I followed the tutorial from Beate Johns over at Splitcoaststampers, here is the link,, I just love how she made hers.

For my card I used Life is a Beach for the sailboat, anchor, wheel and lighthouse. Storybook for the scalloped square and Plantin Schoolbook for the water.

Straight from the Nest

Hi everyone, here is a card I made using the Cricut Cartridge Straight from the Nest. I love this bird, I think it's my favorite bird cut. The corners on this cartridge look awesome too, I'll have to play around with them to see how they come out. I cut the scalloped oval and it's shadow at 4 1/4" and the bird and it's shadow at 2 1/4, the corners are 1" and the card is a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4, I make most of my cards that size.

Happy Father's Day

Hi Everyone, Here is another card from Create A Critter, I keep coming back to this cartridge, it's by far my favorite. I made this for my husband for Father's Day, I bought a pack of Fiskars Texture Plates and wanted to try the leather plate and thought the Alligator would be perfect for it. I cut all the pieces at 2" and all is from the Alligator except the water which is the accessory of the Hippo.
