My Cricut Craftroom Card Creating Tuesday













Hi everyone!



This week the challenge was for me to create a mothers day card. My Mom loves gardening so it was a piece of cake.



I pulled out Freshly Picked, Contemporary Nature and used Cricut Craftroom basics.



The watering can and gloves are from Freshly picked and they were done in layers. You will find the watering Can on page 66 of your booklet. I cut it at 3 inches.



The gloves are on page 56 and they were also cut at 3 inches



I do use cricut craftroom on my projects so After I had my layers laid out on the mat on my screen I then used Cricut Imagine Cartridge Contemporary Nature to flood each layer with color.



I used craftroom basics for the word mom and layered those also. The colors are also from Contemporary Nature and were cut at 1.50 inches.



I used a deep purple card base then I cut a piece of pink card stock about a 1/2 inch smaller all the way around. I then embossed it with my cuttlebug. I distressed the edges of it all the way around and used sage green ink on the distressed edge. Then glued it down to my base.



The borders are from Contemporary Nature and were cut at 8 inches I used my glue runner to attach them to the top and bottom of my card.



I used 3D pop dots to attach the gloves and watering can and liquid glue to attach my lettering.



If you haven't tried Cricut Craftroom yet I highly recommend it. If you have the Imagine machine also and a few Imagine Cartridges it makes card making so easy.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my project today! To see more great cards please go back to:
