This is a little easter card I made using a vintage image from Twisted papers. (They have the best images I've seen!) Also, I used a stamp from OTC for the "lace". After cutting out all of the unwanted areas, it really looks like lace, I love being able to make this out of paper, because with a little inking, you can customize the "lace" to your project. The little flowers are a paper punch, embellished by my favorite little pearls. The left side of the image also got a small frame of cream colored thin ribbon.
I would show the inside, but I've already written in it, and decided against it.

Today I am posting a short tutorial that comes in handy. I cover how to GROUP, ATTACH, ARRANGE and HIDE layers and shapes to maximize the use of your paper!. Using my Cricut Explore Air 2, Design Space and a FREE File: Creative Bug Flowers, I made custom flowers that coordinate perfectly with the papers in my cards.
Cricut Explore Air 2, Creative Bug Flowers in several sizes, Flourish Card,Creative Cards, and Design Space Font: Sunday Swirls Bold, Spellbinders Dies: S4-295, and S2-077, Cardstock: Momenta. Other materials from my stash.
I hope this is useful to you, and that it answers some questions you may have! Please let me know what other types of tutorials may be helpful to you. I am happy to oblige!
Please enjoy this video, I apologize in advance for the abrupt editing, and I appreciate your feedback. I also should have mentioned that I used the fast-cut feature for some of the die cutting, and made this card very quickly. Overall, I am very pleased! Be blessed!

Today I was inspired to create a Dream catcher with existing shapes using my Cricut Explore Air 2. This was brought about after a Facebook post that got me thinking..."I can do that!"
I hope that you are also inspired to create your own. I have made a 2-part video series to show you how you can easily make your own version of dies that you love, but might not be easily accessible, or if you're anything like me, you want to be resourceful!
Please subscribe and like, and let me know your thoughts, or what you have made!!
Be blessed!- Raquel
