Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! I’m making a Floral Heart Bridal Shower Card for my niece-to-be.
Above is a screenshot of Cricut Design Space 3 – still in Beta – I love designing cards in Design Space because I can see what it’s going to look like. I can move elements around, resize them, play with color combinations, and add text.
Here is the inspiration for my card. What I usually do first when designing a card is go on Pinterest and search a topic. Even though I use these cards for inspiration, they rarely look like the original – you’ll see what I’m talking about when you see the finished card . . .
Here are the cut out pieces – I used my awesome Cricut Explore to cut them out. The cardstock is from Close To My Heart and is from the White Daisy and Lagoon paper.
I misted the word and the floral heart with Perfect Pearls Mists – one of my favorite ways to embellish card pieces.
I used the PC Swiss Dots embossing folder on the White Daisy layer.
I have a photo box from Michaels for storing the embossing folders, and folders with labels and a sample of the embossed design. I put a large sample of the embossed design on the folder so I can see the overall design.
I glued the White Daisy embossed layer onto the Lagoon card base.
Then I added the floral heart inside the cutout heart.
Next came the “Congratulations” on the White Daisy layer.
Here is the finished card. The envelope was made from the CTMH Lagoon cardstock using my We R Memory Keepers 1-2-3 Punch Board.
I find myself using the 1-2-3 Punch Board all the time now because I can make longer score lines with the extension arm, and the corner rounder is easier to use.
Hey, if you’d like to see some of my other projects, check out my Instagram and Pinterest board, and I would LOVE it if you would follow me.
As always, I’m Livin’ the Moments . . .
