Flower Market Hello card

Hello, friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day holiday. I really didn't do much myself besides try to heal. 

There is a good chance that you have seen this card before. Yes, it was posted briefly yesterday. I forgot that yesterday was not Sunday, so I did not get the post together. My apologies, but hopefully it set some anticipation for this one!

For this card, I used the Flower Market cartridge and one of our new dies. This is another one of those times that I cut the flowers very large and just trimmed them down. I love the impact of this technique!

If you have a Cricut Explore, here is the file: Flower Market Hello card

If you do not, here are the sizes: 

flowers - 3 1/2", 2 1/2", and 2 1/4"
leaves - 1 3/4" and 1 1/2"

Dramatic card Melanie....using such large flowers as a background is perfect for the 'hello' thin cut sentiment....great creative idea! Trimming them is something I wouldn't have thought to do...but looks great! Take care of yourself...sending healing thoughts your way!
