Scraplifting Part II

Ok, so today I finally got around to making the other card I just loved from Everyday Cricut blog. Those girls are so talented and since my brain is not really working for itself lately, so I have scraplifted again! I made this for my friend Cindy who just had surgery. I hope she likes it, and you too!

I have decided to make my cards BIG! More room to put things on it. So I am making them by folding 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock in half. You can get the envelopes for them at Walmart so I don't have to worry about making the envelopes to fit. I made this card 100% with my Cricut Imagine using the Florals Embellished card for the bird and filling it and the papers with the beautiful Lori's Garden Imagine cartridge. I just love both of the cartridges.

This ribbon flower was made with ribbon that is prestitched and I just grabbed the string on one side and pulled. I cut about 5 or 6 inches of ribbon. I pulled the string on the same side but the other end and when I had it completely gathered I tied the ends of the strings together to secure the flower. I used a glue dot to stick the edges together then sewed it on with the button and floss.

This is yet another stamp that I have no idea where I got it. I used an olive stamp pad from stampendous that I have had for years and I also used the olive and inked heavily around the edges of the white cardstock base.

Here is the recipe for the card created with my Imagine:

  • bird and all its layers cut at 4.2"
  • Striped rectangel is the 5:7 cut at 5.0"
  • Floral square from imagine library cut at 4.5" and it's mat at 4.7"
  • Green swirly print is the 5:7 rectangle cut at 4.0" and it's mat at 4.2"
  • The bird is from Florals Embellished
  • The papers are cut and flood filled with Lori's Garden
  • Self sticking bling came from Michael's
  • Three tiny flower brads came from Oriental Trading Co.

I hope you are inspired to go out and make your friend a card!
