Cricut No Worries card

Cricut No Worries card
Quick and Easy card

Hello, friends!


Today's challenge over at Bitten By the Bug, called for something made using trees. Well, since it is summer time and I wish I was somewhere tropical, I did palm trees!

I used the Artbooking and Summer Love cartridges for this one. I thought it would be fun to make it look a little like a post card. To do this, I glued all of the pieces together before I added it to the card. I added it to the A2 size card front at a jaunty angle. Then, trimmed off the parts that went over the edge. 

As embellishments, I used some stickers from the Seaside Compliments sheets.
If you have a Cricut Explore, here is the file: Cricut No Worries card

If you do not have an Explore, here are the sizes: palm trees (Summer Love) - 4 1/4"
sun (Artbooking) - 1 3/4"
frame (Artbooking) - 5 1/4"
waves (Artbooking) - 1"
