Cricut Gratitude Leaves card

Cricut Gratitude Leaves card
quick and easy card monday
Hello, friends!

I hope you all had a great weekend! I crafted over the weekend, so I can get all of my projects done for December. That way I will have time to enjoy the holidays. Fingers crossed I pull it off this week!
Today, I have a project for the Bitten By the Bug Blog made using the Boho Graphics cartridge. This week we were asked to make a project with fall leaves. I wanted to do something different, so I looked for leaves I had not used before. This cut was perfect. It is a great cut and very unusual.

If you have a Cricut Explore, here is the file: Cricut Gratitude Leaves card

If you do not, I cut the leaves out at 4 1/2". I used the 'hide/contour' feature a ton on this card, so it will be challenging to make this card with out using at least the Cricut Craft Room.

What an interesting card/graphic leaf card.....I can see where this took a lot of time. Even with the 'hide/contour' feature, it's very intricate. The end results...very striking.

Striking! The color combo is fabulous-you have such a great eye for color. Love this cut too and it's one I've never seen before. Hope you gets lots of crafty things done this week!

Love this card. I've been experimenting with Saffron, Peacock, and Fern and loving that combo. The Goldrush adds richness to the combo.
