Well, it doesn’t seem like a year since I was creating an anniversary card for my parents’ golden wedding but clearly it is, so it’s also time to create another one! I had in my mind a floral frame featuring dandelion silhouettes with some lettering on top. It was clearly a job for the Cricut.
I started in Design Space by adding various dandelion, floral and leaf elements and arranging and rearranging them into a square to create my background floral frame.
Next, I added two cut out sections so that my letters would stand out more and then added the text. I went for a bouncy alignment as this allowed the words to be cut as whole pieces (more or less!). I then cut out the frame and two white versions of the sentiments.
I also cut a purple version of the sentiment for the top layer.
The reason for the white layers was to build up dimension so the sentiment stood proud of the frame. I glued the two white sentiments onto the frame and then stuck the purple one on top. This was the fiddliest job of the lot!
To add some extra glitz, I went over the lettering with some sparkly glue and left it to dry. This gave some shine and a bit of sparkle whilst not overpowering the look of the card. Some rhinestones and enamel hearts finished the card and I added some dandelions and hearts cut from leftover vinyl to the envelope.
