Flowers for May

Challenge #11 at Fantabulous Cricut is Flowers for May.  Create a project using at least 3 flowers on your project.
I love walk in my garden.  All these flowers from there.  The center pink flower I used the Cricut Markers on to trace arounde the leaves and then cut it out.  I then curled each of the leaves with my fingers.  Similar techniques on the other flowers .  I LOVE flowers so this was a fun card to make.

Add in a few brads, stickles and  I looked at my card and said, this is one I would like to receive.  No sentiment inside as I haven't decided if I will send it to anyone. :0)

I'm having a little get together movie night at my house so I decided to make these little lanterns to put over the candles and give a less stark glow, but still allow people to move about and see in the darkness.  I put one in each of the bathrooms, one in the kitchen and two in the movie room (all the same fragrance, of course.)

I used white parchment paper to form the layers of paper, it  (you can buy it in the baking section and it can take the heat).  In between the two layers I put this flower vine cut from Storybook in white 3 inches 4 times.  The frames I made in George, square cut at 4.5 inches  8 times. I cut the parchment paper in one long line then scored and folded it to form the cube.

The flower cuts are done in white, but you could use any color between the layers.  Even scraps.  There are lots of fun cuts on Storybook that would make great see-through/shadow cuts.

They created a nice glow.

Join us at Fantabulous Cricut and create a project with at least 3 flowers.  I can't wait to see what you create!
