MCT Throwback Thursday: Happy Birthday Flowers

by Veronica

It's another Throwback Thursday over at My Creative Time, and this week's challenge is to create a project using a Cricut cartridge with a frame.

For my project, I made a beautiful card for my Grandma who's birthday, May 1st, is just the day after mine! After creating my card base (5.5" square), I adhered my flower patterned paper (from Echo Park's This & That 6x6 pad) and then cut another sheet of the same patterned paper into strips and popped them up over the first layer.

My frame was created using the Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge and was popped up onto my card. I stamped the flower bunch from Bloom Where You Are Planted and colored it with my Copics. The "Happy Birthday" is from Floral Sentiments - I just LOVE that font!

Of course, I used plenty of pop dots to bring my card to life and I added some Stampin' Up! Baker's Twine for a little extra pizzazz.
