May Cricut Class

Happy Spring! The weather has finally warmed up and the trees and flowers are blooming, so lets make some springy cards!

This month we are making get well cards.  I recently got the new Cricut Explore machine and had a lot of fun learning how to use the design software while designing these cards. There are still some things to learn, but I think I've got the basics down. 

Our first card is a pretty daffodil on a lattice background.  The daffodil is from the Walk In My Garden cartridge and the background is from Artbooking.

Want to send flowers to someone? This pot of posies will brighten their day. The flower pot is from Walk in My Garden and the flowers and leaves are from Plantin Schoolbook.

On the lighter side is a trio of bandages from Everyday Pop Up Cards. I couldn't resist using them on a card. The blue background was cut from the Elegant Edges Cartridge.

Sometimes you just need a silly card to cheer someone up. This get whale soon card will do just that. It is from the Just Because Cards cartridge. The waves are from Artbooking.

Our last card doesn't really look like a card, but it will fold up and fit in an A2 size envelope. This type of box card has been very popular on the internet lately and I had to make one (or two, or three). The flowers are from Walk in My Garden and the pink shape is from Elegant Edges. After I finished this card, I found a couple of other options for the get well sentiment, so that may change.
