Easter is just around the corner. Here's a card that cuts corners - oh, what an awful pun! Anyway, I lifted the idea for my oval card from this card at Two Peas in a Bucket by joyfulitl.
She used Close to My Heart's Cricut cartridge to cut the shape. This looks like a fantastic cartridge with lots of versatility. I've never ordered anything from CTMH but it looks like they have some very pretty products.
I used my SCAL software and my Cricut to come fairly close and add a second layer. For the flowers, I used the Upsy Daisy stamp, markers and a spritz of water before stamping to give that watercolor look. I learned the hard way that one light spritz is all it takes or your flowers look like they have been through a flood.
Thanks for visiting today!
