Adorable Card - the how to's!

This is a card that I made as invitations for a home workshop and I loved the way it turned out so I thought I would show how easy it was to make...with just a little bit of love!

Step one: cut out the chosen flowers using the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. Note: if making multiple cards, make sure to use your "fill-all" function! The size measures: 1 1/4". Cheatsheet--the cutting sizes that coordinate with the stamped image are printed on the carrier sheet of the stampset directly around the image.

Step two: Now that the shape is cut out, attach the coordinating stamp to the block and stamp the flower image onto the flower cut out. I have found it works better with an opposite color behind the cut out. For i.e. if the cut out is light in color, use a dark color paper and if it is a dark color that you are stamping on, use a light color as a background. By doing this you can better see the the cut out that you are stamping onto.

Step three: When stamping onto the flowers, stamp first generation on one of the three flowers and a second generation on the other two flowers. With the sponge dauber, lightly brush chocolate ink over the flowers.

Step four: Create the card itself. Adhere the background patterned paper (measures 2 3/4" x 5 1/2") and little squares (squares measure 1 1/2" x 1 1/2"). Stamp sentiment on the bottom right corner of the card. Ink the edges of the card itself.

Step 5: Attach flowers to the small blue patterned squares. The 1st generation goes in the center and the two 2nd generation ones go on the outside squares. Use a glue dot to attach button flower in the center of each paper flower. Adhere three mini-Mocha opaques in leading up to the sentiment.
