Floral Cricut Card


I came across this sweet card while looking for inspiration to make a simple “all occasion” card. I didn't have the die used on the original card, so I created a file in Design Space using images from the Flower Market Cricut cartridge. Here is a link to the DS file.


I embossed the sentiment (from a retired stamp set called A Bunch of Love) with Versamark ink and  White embossing powder. I ended up giving the card to my mom for Mother’s Day. It’s not as cute as the original card, but my mom loved it, so that’s what counts. Right?
