Cricut Expression SC212

Hi :-)

I mentioned earlier that my hubby and kids gave me a Cricut Expression for Christmas, and I LOVE it!  I used the Home Decor Cartridge and the sketch SC212 for this card:

Mom's Here for You SC212 (Large)

This DP is from SU!’s Parisian Summer DP pack.  I really love the colors.  I used Bravo Burgundy and Very Vanilla with it.  The flowers and dragonfly were cut using my Cricut.  I thought they needed more detail, so I paper pierced some details in each of them (it’s hard to see on the dark card stock in this picture).  It really looks good in real life because you can see the vanilla CS through each piercing hole.  I placed the flowers and dragonfly on dimensionals.

I struggled with the dotted strip.  First I had ribbon, then two ribbons, then DP…  I had to leave it, sleep on it, and try again the next day.  I ended up running a strip of vanilla CS through my Swiss Dots CB folder then inking up my brayer and very lightly rolling it over the dotted CS.  I loved the result.  I think it ties in really well with the dots on the DP underneath it.

The sentiment is form Verve Visual’s Here for You stamp set.  I stamped it on vanilla, cut it with my oval punch and placed it on a bravo burgundy designer label.  I paper pierced the rounded parts of the designer label, but again it’s hard to see in this picture.  The sentiment is raised with dimensionals.  To finish it off, I added two Taylor Tots to the bottom left corner.

Thanks for looking!
