Yesterday, I stopped at Walmart on my way home. I went to check out the Cricut scrapbook section and boy was I surprised…no Cricut cartridges were in sight! Luckily a sales person was working in the isle and she told me, they were marked down and in the Clearance Department located in the Garden Department! I hurried over and found the cartridges marked down from $40 to $20. I was tempting to buy several, but one was just right…”Bloom” has it all, bird cages, butterflies, flowers and garden fences. I could already see the cuts used to make my 3D birthday card and rushed home to play in the art studio.
I cut the birdcage and butterfly at 3” from my new “Bloom” cartridge and Happy Birthday was cut from the Classic Cricut Font cartridge at 2”. Ribbon and ribbon glowers add to the look on a 6”x6” canvas painted with pale blue acrylic paint. Foam dot dimensionals raise the butterfly and cage and Zip Dry Glue holds the flowers and ribbon on the canvas. Zig Two Way Glue was used for lettering. Check out your local Walmart and make a 3D card.
