Botanical Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

While browsing around in Cricut Design Space, I noticed some new cards that have recently been added to the subscription. I chose one from Botanical Cards and this is my play with it! My finished card measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". Double-sided patterned papers are from K&Company.

Cricut Cartridges:
Botanical Cards - Flower Card - I used only the overlay of the card. It has flower and leaves shapes that will be cut out, but I used the Contour function to eliminate those images. The overlay is cut 4.25" wide from white Colorbok cardstock.
Anna's Flourish Cards and Embellishments - Sentiment is done with the Cricut Gemstone Blue Pen using the Write feature.
Spring Cottage - Forget Me Not flowers are cut 2.12" wide x 1.34" high. Flowers are pop-dotted on the overlay.
Gypsy Wanderings - Happy Birthday is cut 3.50" wide.

Crinkled ribbon bow is added to complete the look.

Simple card, but I think the recipient will enjoy it!
