Celebrate Today card made using the NEW Fancy Frames cartridge and Build a Flower cartridges

Hello, friends!

I hope you all had a great weekend. It was a fun one for me because I got to do several things that I wanted to do instead of a bunch of things that I HAD to do. Love that!

Today's card is made using two of my favorite cartridges from the latest release (Fancy Frames and Flower Shoppe). I think they are kind of like peanut butter and jelly. They compliment each other perfectly!

I have noticed many people are confused at to if these new project cards are compatible with the Expression. Absolutely they are! So if you had any reservations due to that question, now you know. Which means you can purchase away *wink*

I used My Mind's Eye paper.
The frame is cut out at 2 1/4".
The flower is cut out at 2" and the leaves are cut out at 1".
The stamps used are from Papertrey Ink
Thanks for stopping by to see me. Make sure you leave a comment on Thursday's post, so you can be in the drawing for the Car Decals cartridge. Click here to check that out ==> Car Decals GIVEAWAY

Have a MAGICAL Monday!

These colors are so pretty together! Hm-m-m-m . . . I know it's early (or late) but how about for Mother's Day or her birthday? (Just so happens, both are in May.) Love it!

This card is absolutely beautiful! The colors compliment each other so well. You give me such inspiration! Thanks!

Those are 2 of my favorites of the new releases also. I would love to see a video of how the flowers come together.
Also, I would love to comment on Everyday Cricut but can't, it never loads the page??? Any ideas?

Brenda Hugar said...

Lovely card, love the flower and the depth.

mlharrell54 said...

When Build A Flower came out, I thought, there's a cartridge I don't need. I already have carts that have flowers on them!
Your flower, with all the depth on it, convinced me otherwise.
I love how it stands up in the middle, without using a squirt bottle and molding.
