cricutcardzchallenges

                                                  happy wednesday! 
this week over at CCC  our theme is
              mothers day card, using the card feature from any cartridge AND  
                             add an image of a flower, from any cart.   
so..what i did was used a childs year heart for on the top of my card. (its the card feature on page 30. ) ill be honest i have no idea how to size these dang cuts to make an actual A2 card out of them.if you know..let me know please! ;)
for the flower i made carnations, my moms favorite flower.i used accent essentials accent 6. i cut 3 at 1 inch and 2 at 3/4 inches.crumple them up then unfold them. i used a piercer to make a hole through the centers, added a tiny brad to hold them together. then i took each layer starting from the top one, and twisted it, the second layer twisted around the first etc. then just played with them until i had the desired effect. it takes about a minute is all. i then added spun sugar distress stickles to them.
the vase and stems are from walk in my garden cart.mom is from beyond birthdays.
extras:colorbox fluid chalk,  liquid pearls,ms butterfly punch, SU cardstock and memorybox paper
thank you so much for visiting ,your sweet words always warm my heart. have a super fine rest of day :)xxxshelly
