CP Creative Team: Quick & Cute Daisy Card

Time to share another project for The Creative Pointe Creative Team!

If you're like me, you've established that you send handmade cards.  It's expected...you can't send a *choke* store-bought card!!!  Yeah, well, if you're like me, you have a job, a house, responsibilities, etc. and you squeeze your precious crafting time inbetween your real world obligations.  I get ahead by being a crazy planner, but there's always a surprise need for a card.  That's when I love using my Cricut cartridges, or better yet, some SVG files from Diecut Designer to make quick and cute cards.

The Details:
  • For the happy daisy, I used the "Daisy in Pot" SVG and cut it small enough to use scraps of cardstock (bonus!).  Once assembled, I added a little shading using colored pencils and a smily face with a brown Le Pen.
  • This card was also great for using up pattern paper scraps.  I just layered some papers that complement each other and the daisy in both color and pattern, stamped a greeting, and added the assembled daisy with some foam tape for dimension.
Super fast, uses up your paper scraps...like I said, it's quick and cute!  Here's another tip:  it's just as easy to make two cards as it is one.  As long as you have your supplies out, the Cricut running, and paper cutter working, cut enough for two cards and help yourself avoid that next "surprise" card.

I know you'll find some inspiration at Diecut Designer, so if you haven't visited yet, be sure to check it out.  There's new stuff added all the time.  In fact, Cindy just added some super fun girly stuff and beautiful borders that I can't wait to play with!

  1. Great card! SVGs are the best for fast crafting. And the best part is that because you can place the cuts anywhere on your mat, you can use up all those scraps! Thanks for sharing and being part of the Creative Team.
