Summer Flower Card!


I have been playing with my Cricut's Mini Monograms cartridge. This cartridge has the capabilities to make scalloped squares and circles from 1 inch all the way to 5 1/2 inches! I really love this! The punches are great but somewhat limiting! I used Die Cuts With a View paper for the background. The polka dot paper is Doodlebug and the pink solid paper is SU! I Cuttlebugged it! (See how I made that into a verb?) I had this very old tulip stamp from SU! I colored it with my Prisma colored pencils and mineral spirits. and added some crystal lacquer and dazzling diamonds.
By the way, I have been asked to be a part of a Design Team for Regina Easter, from Hand to Paper! She is the expert at using the Cricut and was looking for people to help create projects using this amazing machine! So check out her new blog entitled" Bitten by the Bug!" I will be creating for this really soon!

This card is so cute! Congrats on teh design team, you definitely deserve it! I've been trying not to be interested in a Cricut, but what you said about the scallops is really awesome, and now if you'll be showing more and more stuff being on this design team... uh oh, I'm in trouble... :-)
