Cricut Lite Botanicals Cards

I love this cart! So since I was lucky enough to be sent as part of a Giveaway on Everyday Cricut, how better to thank Joy and Melanie than with cards made with it :D.

The first card I made using the the butterfly card and the third flower cut in the fourth row. I used Diamond Stickles in the flower centers and Antique Linen Distress Stickles on the butterfly. 

The second card I made to have a bit of a "reveal" when it opened, a little faux stitching with a micron pigma 01 and some Diamond Stickles. I really need to get a flower frog to photograph closed cards lol.

Both card bases were made from Papertrey Ink cardstock, and are a little smaller than a regular A2 because they were cut out with the Cricut. The "You Inspire Me" sentiment comes from Papertrey Ink's  Embellishments stamps set released last month, and the "Thank you" comes from Papertrey Ink's Year of Flowers: Lily of the Valley stamp set.

ok. I gotta ask.... what in the heck is a flower frog? Nice cards....

Ohhh Snap said...

A flower frog is one of flat circular things with lots of thin spikes sticking out of it. They could also be made of glass with holes in them, but that sort won't hold a card lol. Their original purpose was to help a flower arrangement keep it's form.

But now they have floral foam, the floral frogs (at least the sort with the spikes) has become a valuable asset to people who want to photograph their cards in a closed position lol.

Thanks for asking :D
