Get well hugs card made using the Cricut Essentials cartridge from the E2.

Hello, friends!

Today I have a card that I made using the Cricut Essentials cartridge that is included on the NEW E2 machine. These flowers made me think of tropical flowers and the weather has been so terrible lately that I thought we all could use something tropical!

I used DCWV glitter cardstock.
I cut the flowers at 2" and 1". The leaves were cut out at 3".
The stamp is from My Creative Time Stamps and the set is called 'Pain Pain Go Away'


Thanks so much for stopping by!! I will see you all back here tomorrow!!

Have a TERRIFIC Tuesday!!
