Best Wishes from Exploring Cricut

Hello Crafty Friends,
 
Welcome back!
I am glad you are stopping by today on this super Saturday. I hope you have plans to make this a wonderful weekend. I worked on my Word Wall yesterday for most of the day, and now I am ready to do something fun. I was thinking about looking into a day at Sea World. It has been a couple years and teachers use to get a pass, so I am going to research if that offer is still available. 
 
Today is my day at Exploring Cricut.
I really like how this came card out. I have been wanting to do a bird cage for quite some time and finally found the right cut. All the edges were inked in brown to add an antique feel.
 This cut from April Showers is two layers, so your bird can be any color you want. I choose to use the center of the flower as my accent color. 
I found this package of flowers at the Scrapbook Expo in a dollar bin, but they look they are worth much more.  
Materials:
April Showers Cricut cartridge ~ bird cage cut at 2 3/4"
kraft paper
other pattern papers from scrap box
brown flowers with green leaves ($1 at Scrapbook Expo)
blue craft thread
Spellbinders ~ Lacey Circles
Best Wishes stamp
brown and turquoise ink
 
Challenges:
 
 Hope you enjoy your weekend and find some time to craft! Be sure to come back on Monday for the new Exploring Cricut challenge.
 
Stay Creative,
Georgiana

  1. Your card is precious so love your flowers and all of your color choices. There is something so special about a birdie cage and a sweet little bird and you sure did a great job creating this. I do have this cartridge and never realized it had this cut. Great job!
