Intricate Card with Cricut

Thank you for joining me! I recently ran into Olga Diretorenko on YouTube. I can't even begin to explain how much she has inspired me to do what I love, as I most enjoy doing it. I love intricate small designs, and absolutely love texture. This is what I enjoy about paper arts, and Olga reminded me of this. She used a die in her Spring Spirit pocket letter #2 that inspired this card. If you run by her channel, you will see what I mean! I hope you enjoy my take on this card, and THANK YOU to Olga for your inspiration!! My Cricut Explore Air 2 : A Child's year, Ornamental Iron 2, Bloom, and Anna's Flourish Cards and Embellishments.

Cricut Explore Air 2, and My new FAVORITE Card!!

Thank you for joining me!! Y'all, I am sooo excited to show you this card! Reason being that sometimes you get to crafting and things don't look as you envision them, but since I received my Cricut Explore Air 2 , I am so pleased!! This machine takes ordinary paper and makes beautiful designs out of it! On this card I used : Anna's Garden Cards and Embellishments . To begin,  I selected the images I wanted, sized them to the background of my card, and attached them to let my Cricut know where to write. The rest was easy peasy! I also traced along the edge of the Flourish Icon with my Gelly Roll pen and added Viva Pearls to the centers of flowers. I also added Ranger Distress Ink to the edges of dies in Mermaid Lagoon . I fussy Cut around the Flower Decorative element and added it to the envelope for an extra decorative touch. Paper: Recollections, and gems from stash. I hope you enjoy this and that you leave me a comment letting me

Cricut Explore Air Tea Cup Card

Thank you for joining me!  Today I am sharing a cute card I made with my Cricut Explore Air 2 .  This was a quick and easy card, with intricate layers that cut out perfectly, and I was very pleased with the result. To personalize it, I added a sentiment by easily typing into Design Space a Bible verse that I then attached to the background paper image, then selected Write. My Explore Air 2 took it from there! So easy! Please let me know your thoughts!
