Shaped Cards with the Botanicals Lite cartridge

The first two cards are made with the Botanicals Lite Cricut cartridge and K&Co. double sided paper. Two pieces, easy peasy. The shaped edges are really fun. I used clear embossing powder on the bird and branch and one of the flowers.

This tulip is also two pieces. I used my new favorite clear Decorative Accents for embellishment, this time I used the Copper Ranger Alcohol Ink. The alcohol ink slid off a little bit adding a distressed texture I really liked.

There are also phrases on the cart. The two Get Well Cards were made from the same sheet of paper cut in half and put on the Cricut mat with one half of each side facing up. I used Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream cardstock to make the back of the card (so loving my ATG gun for this sort of attachment btw). When the card was closed, I traced the flower lightly with a pencil then colored to the edge with watercolor crayons.

The second one I put the flower slightly off the edge and embellished the from with dots of Antique Linen Distress Stickles.

There really is a lot that can be done with this cart, so I'm giving one away soon in a future post :D.
