Flower Design Element

Hi Everyone,

How is everyone doing on this wet July Saturday?  Yes, even here it's wet!

Today I am featuring a peek at a gift set of cards I made for my cousin.  I wanted to get them made in a hurry (as usual) - but also wanted to test out my new eClips.  I selected a middle-of-the-road doily-like embellishment to be the center point of each card.  I chose this because I knew it was something my Cricut couldn't handle...but I feared using a file any more intricate - did not want to be disappointed the first time out!  I am actually pleasantly surprised...although I used only good-sized embellishments on these cards, I did take this file down to less than 1-1/2" and still got a great cut!  Most of the paper used in this project is from Authentique's Blissful Collection.

Also, all the designs are based from sketches provided by Operation Write Home....these are great when you are in a hurry and want some basic ideas.

I am so excited....next project, UP cards for my sis.  (Lori, have a great idea for showing Neebish Island!)

Have a great week!
