It only took me about 30 minutes to put together. It turned out really well, my new Cricut Explore cuts amazingly. I also love the writing feature, I know the Expression 2 does this as well, but I have never tried it.
The card itself is 4.75 inches square, that I purchased at Hobby Lobby. It is a pack of 12 note cards and envelopes by Paper Studio.
Here is a list of the cartridges and images I used. The number following the image is the image number in Design Space. I added this, hoping in the future we are allowed to search on this number. Right now you have to search on the type of image or particular cartridge.
Cricut Artbooking - Scalloped square #M40F7A cut at 4.25 inches. Any scalloped square will do, even one from a Spellbinders die. That’s all I ever used for my scallops until I got my Explore, as you can see, perfect scallops.
Quilted Ornaments - Heart #M44DC7 cut at 3.75 inches. I only cut the top decorative layer.
Sweethearts Cartridge - Mr & Mrs #M4154D cut at 2 inches. I cut two Mr&Mrs to give it more thickness so I could attach it with foam tape. I cut the shadow layer and selected to write the top layer. I used the silver pen that came with my machine.
The silver layer is a square cut at 4.5”, no cartridge needed for this cut.
I embossed the white scallop square with the Anna Griffith Poppy embossing folder, just to add a little more elegance to the card. After cutting out the heart I had all these little flourish pieces that I hated to waste. They cut so beautifully, I decided to add a little extra to the card.
I dressed it up with a few pearls and it was finished. Simple and elegant. I hope you like it.
