Orange Sweet Vine Bird Cricut Card
I cut the leaf frame using the Design Studio and my cricut expression. I then used a green marker to outline all the edges, as I used white core textured card and to create veins on the leaves. It seemed to take forever, but it was worth it to give some depth.
I glued the frame to some patterned card and then added the flowers and bird using foam dots. I rarely make anything using orange and this turned out to be more fun than I expected.
The flowers are made using EK Success whale punches and a glass nugget designed for using in a vase of flowers or fish tanks. It was clear and I coloured it using permanent whispers markers.
The bird is from Kaisercraft Flora and Fauna clear stamps sets. It is stamped and then embossed with black gloss embossing powder onto patterned card. This is a great way to use up scraps of paper and to save time on colouring images in.
