Fancy Frame and Embossed Vellum Flowers

This sweet card has lots of elements but goes together easily. The challenge: Use any Cricut Cartridge with a Frame. I chose Elegant Edges for the looped frame and ran some super shiny paper through The Cuttlebug using Diamond Plate. Check off the Frame!

Now the flowers are made using My Creative Time Flower Petal Dies. I cut vellum envelopes up in powder blue and white. What a difference when you run them through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dot Folder. So dainty and pretty. I curled the edges with scissors and put a little pearl bead in the center. The leaves were cut from 2 shades of green envelopes using the leaves from my CuttlebuQg uilling Flowers.They are the perfect size for these layered flowers.

The sentiment is stamped from My Creative Time All Around Birthday Time using Stampin' Ups' Buckaroo Blue and stamped onto the My Creative Time Scalloped and Stitched Circles,

The background papers are from a prize I won! Echo Park 6x6 Dots and Stripes. I love that little pad and will be sad when I've used it up.

I added a few blue rhinestone bitty flowers from my stash 'cause you always need some blingage!

    1. That is very nice. I love the colors. Have you made any projects using the Sophisticated cartridge by Teresa Collins? I was looking at your site for any projects using this cartridge. I will check back later for an answer. Your site is awesome. Thanks for sharing your work with us.

    3. Gail: Did you need some cuts from Sophisticated or have a question about the cartridge?

    4. I do not need any cuts. I wanted to see if you had any layouts using this cartridge.

    5. I will look. I think I used the fonts and the keys and maybe even the frames! I think I have all of hers except for Baby Boutique and the Imagine ones since I don't have an Imagine!

    6. As you can see I love your site. What about the spellbinders/ nestabilities. I see you used the cuttlebug for todays project. I love swiss dots also. Do you use your cuttlebug for a lot? I need to use mines more.
      Thanks for all your answers.

    7. Wow, how nice...thank you! I only have a few Spellbinders. They have tulips on them of course and I think I have the round or oval nestabilities. I use the Cuttlebug ALOT. I love to emboss unusual papers like the vellum in this project.
