Friends Card, using Cricut!

Hello Everyone!

Happy Monday and thank you for stopping by. My card today was inspired by the Concord and 9th peek through patterns die sets. So I got on my Cricut Design studio and created this friend's card. 

I made a 7x10in rectangle and cut out a section in the bottom half of the card. I attached a score line and added that along the 5in mark. I found the word friends in the image bank for the Cricut Design Space and added it to the section I cut out and welded it all together. This is what it looks like in the Cricut design space.

I then stamped and die cut out the flowers and leaves from the My Favorite Things More Rustic Wildflowers stamp set. Unfortunately, this set is no longer available. I used Gina K and Hero Arts assorted inks to stamp the flowers (see below for the colors). I stamped the sentiments on the front of the cards from My Favorite Things More Essential Sentiments using Gina. K ink in Peach Bellini and then stamped it again using Versamark ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. 

I added clear acetate cardstock on the inside to give the card some stability and stamped a pretty flower pattern on the inside using the Close to My Heart Border Medley stamp in Gina. K ink in peach bellini. I also stamped a sentiment on the inside of the card, using the same My Favorite Things More Essential Sentiments set. I also added shimmer to the word friends, using a Close to My Heart clear shimmer marker.

This card was a lot of work, but well worth it in the end. I was very pleased with how this turned out. See below for a list of the materials used in this card, including links to buy any of the products. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
