Cricut Creative Holiday Spring Tulip card.



Today I have a card made using the Creative Holiday Cards. You guys know how much I love flowers and somehow I must have missed this beauty when this cartridge came out a year or so ago. Anyway, as with any of these types of cartridges it is super simple to make something very cute, very quickly. I did have to add my own flair though!

Again I used patterned paper and cardstock from the Ariana paper pack. Someone needs to stop me. I just love this one so much!

For the sentiment I just made a little banner by cutting a narrow strip of white cardstock. Then, I stamped in the center using Juniper ink and the Hoppy Easter stamp set. Next, I scored the paper on either side of the stamped sentiment folded it back and then forward again to make the banner shape. You can made the little duck tail ends with scissors or a square punch.

 Have a TERRIFIC Tuesday!
