finished card

It is so fun to craft and try new things. This card was made using a Cricut Joy. I wanted to experiment with Stardream card stock to see if it would cut on a smaller cutting machine.

Hi, I am Janet from Try it – Like it – Create it, and I will be sharing projects with you twice a month.  

card stock

The card stock used for this card was Stardream Metallic in Coral and Latte Tan for the card. CutCardStock has a ton of different colors of Stardream to choose from, they are all just beautiful and my favorite card stock from CutCardStock.

card stock parts

The two parts I used for the card are the folded card stock for the background, and the cut cardstock I cut on the Cricut Joy. Look at the details from that cut. The square is 3″ x 3″ and some of those flower shapes are very very small.

After gluing the card parts together, I chose to embellish the center of the flowers with gems in two sizes. These pearlized gems were bought at the Dollar Tree.
