Paisley project #1

I will admit I was a little confused by the card/tab function key. It took me a while and I did a little searching and checking on Provo's YouTube channel to figure it out. Here is the link to the video. When you watch the video, down in the lower left corner you'll see the cards. I'll demo them in a video this week.

Here is my first project:

I cut the card/tab from page 46 of the manual at 4 1/5 in. using 6x11 inch cardstock. I used the shift key to create the striped scallop and then popped it off the front of the card with some dimensionals. I cut brown Bazzill cardstock to fit the window and adhered it to the inside of the card. It made a nice mat for the inside message.  For a little bit of an added touch, I also added some linen thread and tied a bow around the frame.

 The owl is from page 42 of the manual and is cut at 2 1/4 in. I used ivory (off white) Bazzill cardstock for the base of the owl and then pattern paper (Cosmo Cricut) for the owl's body. I then cut out all the layer 1 images and the flower from the layer 2 key. I added a little bling to the flower :)


for the inside of the card.... I added some ivory cardstock to the brown that was used over the window and added a panel to the other side as well. I then cut the flower (2 in.) using the button key on page 42.


Supplies: Cricut Expression, Paisley Cartridge, New Leaf Paper Trey Ink Cardstock, Bazzill Brown and Ivory Cardstock, Cosmo Cricut Girl Friday & Everafter Pattern Paper Pack, Recollections Bling,  Linen Thread Paper Trey Ink.
