I am a volunteer for an organization that sends birthday cards to their employees and boards. They had been printing them on a computer and I thought that they looked cheap, so I volunteered to make the cards for each month. I was going to keep them simple and quick to make! I can make them all alike for each month, which makes them quicker.
I thought the fall theme for Exploring Cricut would be perfect for November Birthdays. By using my wonderful Cricut Explore, I cut out a cornucopia from the cartridge Celebrate wit Flourish. There are 4 layers to it and I used Close to My Heart Paper purchased from Katie's Corner for most of it.
The flower pot is from the cartridge Freshly Picked. I cut off the flowers that were on it. Cut it out of light brown paper and then colored with CTMH Sunset marker to get the color I wanted. The stems of the flowers are from Mother's Day 2010 also from CTMH. The blooms are from the cartridge Mother's Day Bouquet. I cut two for each flower. Then after putting three on the eraser end of a pencil and folding down the petals, I placed one on each unfolded bloom that had a spot of glue in the center. The wording came from Text on the Cricut Explore.
I haven't put a verse inside yet as I am not sure just what I am going to say, but I plan on putting it on a pumpkin and gluing it to the inside.
I'm also sending this to Bitten by the Bug 2 where the theme is Cricut cuts!
