{ April Showers Bring May Flowers }

I wanted make a Card using the Card Feature on the Paisley cart. I searched both the Cricut Cards and the Paisley threads on the Cricut MB for posts using the Paisley Card Feature...nada.

So, here is what I did:

I found what looked like an Envelope cut on the cart. Using leftovers of my Pink Paislee 'Cupid' pp, I cut the Envelope using 'Fit To Page' on my Expression and it calculated 4.5 inches. See the back of the completed Envelope below:

Then, I then cut the Card at 4.5 inches as well (in red Bazzill Smoothie). Next, I cut a rectangle in the darling pink gingham pp and carefully glued it to the back of the front of the Card. The pink gingham has flowers on the back, so it looks nice on the inside as pictured below...and it ties in with my Sentiment:

Then, I cut the Paisley umbrella both in the striped pp and brown Bazzill at 3.5 inches. The shadow of the umbrella was SO big that it took over the whole card, so, I opted to just offset the brown umbrella (in the same size) underneath the striped one and adhered it to the Card with 3-D dots. To accent the rain boot, I cut a tiny ladybug at 1 inch in pale green and added some doodling and a button to her. I stapled some blue rick rack to the top of the boot as well. More doodling.

The Card is kind of a tri-fold with a slot in the back. I punched a 1 1/8 inch circle in the pink gingham and adhered it to the back "closure". You can see the back of the completed Card below:

Yes, I had some sort of Cricut mishap on that back piece, but I am pretending its not there!

Thanks for stopping by!!
