Cards Made With Cricut
I recently got back some work from publication in Cricut magazine and I wanted to share some of my projects with you. These cards don’t “fit” into a technique or category but are fun enough to share anyway.
I really do enjoy cardmaking. To me, they are little pieces of art. Scrapbooking is wonderful, but there is a pressure – I’m sure I put it on myself – to make a fabulous layout, filled with details to pertain to the story involved behind the photos. And, that stress isn’t there when I sit down to make cards. These are so freeing and easy. Plus, you know, it’s always great to have a few cards around for last minute needs. Here are several cards made with Cricut.
Happy Spring -
What a fun card! I love the colors. I used Cricut carts to cut the words, flower, grass and clouds for this card. I used Classroom Feb/March, Noah’s ABC animals, April Showers, Alphalicious and Simply Charmed to cut these elements. I popped up the word Spring, and inserted the flower for the letter “i”. I also added the background to a few mats and crumpled the clouds for some texture. I finished it with a little twine and clear button.
Happy Easter -
I just love this bunny cut, made with Folk Art Festival. The cuts in him were cut once in the pretty tan, and again in white, so that I could fit the white cuts into the tan, and chalk them for color. It’s so pretty and delicate looking. I used Flower Shoppe to cut the rolled flowers. I always use hot glue on my rolled flowers. Then added ribbon and hand cut leaves. I also added an egg from Folk Art Festival, and doubled it to fold over and make the basic card shape.
Thanks for the direction card -
How fun is this thank you card? I used Cricut Craft Room to combine a bunch of arrow cuts onto a basic rectangle mat. Once the arrows were cut. I added patterned paper and cardstock to the back of the mat. I used Birthday Bash, Arrows, and Accent Essentials to cut the arrows and star. I layered them and added the mat to the card, and printed out my journaling. It’s a masculine card with nice colors!
Miss you -
I love love this flower cut. It looks like a stamp that has been cut out. The pretty white outline really sets off those flowers and I love the bright colors of this card. I used Sophie and Phrases to cut the shapes on this card. After cutting the patterned paper and folding it into the card base, I layered strips of white cardstock and over lapped them, then used a corner punch to round the card corners.
Thanks for taking a look at my cards!
