Hibiscus birthday card made using the Tie the Knot Cricut cartridge.

Hello, friends!

Today's post is a quick one. I have one more exam to study for and need to get cracking before I totally lose interest.

This card is made using the Tie The Knot Cricut cartridge. I know that it is intended to be used for Wedding things, but some of these images can be used for lots of different things. These flowers are a great example of that. They could even be used for a tropical vacation.
The paper I used is printed out with my Imagine and the Lori's Garden cartridge.
I cut the flowers out at 3 1/2".
The stamp is from Papertrey Ink and the banner is a die from Spellbinders that I cut out using my CUTTLEBUG.
The lace is from Melissa Frances and Close To My Heart.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I will see you cool cats back here tomorrow!!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!!

I've seen this banner in something you have used before. Would you mind sharing the name of it? I would love to order it, but couldn't find it on their site. I love the tie the knot cart. Great card! Thanks1

Beautiful. That's one of my favorite flowers and I didn't remember that it was on Tie the Knot. I love it when I find these treasures in my own supplies. Thanks for the daily posts.

Thanks for the pretty card idea with Tie the Knot.I don't use this as much as I could; maybe now I will.
Good luck with exams. I know what you're going through. I have been a non-traditional student with a family.

Joyce said...

Always love how you take images off of carts that are labeled for something specific and use them in a different way. My goal this year is to try to find the time to spend a few days on each of the carts I have and craft for different purposes. Thanks for the information and creative input! Now can you find me the time to do that?!!! :)
