Whimsical Floral Thank you card



Before I get going today, I wanted to let you guys know that it looks like everything is back up and working properly. Also, I did not go anywhere, so scroll down and see the things I have been making. Yesterday's post was not the first post I had done in a while. It was one of many!

Today, I have a project I made using a cheap SVG from online (doodle flowers) and a cut from the Artiste cartridge (the little banner that coordinates with the stamp set). What I really want you guys to notice is how thin the doodle part of the flowers are. My Explore cut it like a dream without issue! This is a huge improvement, because there is not way the old machine would have been able to cut that! The only hard part is getting it off of the mat with out it tearing, so be very careful if you try this at home!

That's a gorgeous card! You are right, the Cricut EXpression that I have would not be able to cut those tiny items. I'm still on the fence about the Explore but the more I see, the more I am leaning towards getting one.

Adorable card, Melanie. Would love to win this cartridge.

Vickie ODell said...

I love your card! I agree that the explore can cut with more detail. It also hasn't torn up my mat after LOTS of cutting. Thanks for all you share.

Kat said...

What lovely flowers.
Oodles of Doodles is on my wish list. :)

Coelle said...

Just a GREAT card...so fun...and CUTE! Would love to know how you got the wording on "Thanks Oodles" to be darker than the scribble background (would think all would be the same color/shade).

Vanessa said...

What a cute card! I'm really impressed with the delicate lines of the flowers and how well the Explore cut them. Thanks for sharing!

Sue D said...

Very pretty colors and patterns and I like the embossed background.
