Spring Card, Using Freshly Picked Cricut Cartridge

Here is another card I did today for the Creating Keepsakes Community challenge. Yes, this is one of my new cartridges from cricut Love those those deals when I can find them. Wahoo!! This card I am going to save and give to someone who has a birthday coming up.

Supplies Needed;

Cricut Cartridge Freshly Picked

Printed Paper, Cardstock



Clear Glue, Adhesive Squares

Cricut Cutting Machine

Blade 5, Pressure med or high, Speed low or med

Cut the following with your Cricut Cutting Machine.

Cut 1- 2 in hat 1, cut 1- 2 hat 1 shift, cut 1- 2 in hat 1 layers, cut 1- 2 in hat 1 layers shift, cut 1- 2 in hat 1 layers 2.

Cut 1- 1 1/2 in word bloom flower 6, and cut 1- 1 1/2 in word bloom flower 6.

Assemble the hat with all the pieces and then chalk specific areas of the hat that you would like. Chalk around the entire edges of the mat and card. Assemble the the word bloom then glue to a mat. I used my decorative corner rounder for the four corners.

The mat for the card base is a piece that I did not measure. I just eyed it.

Add gems where the photo shows.

I loved the colors and the gems. May have to purchase more gems, they add a bit of fun sparkle.
