A Pretty Card

Everywhere you look you see stuff made with the Lori's Garden cricut cartridge. I was never that interested in (or so I thought). I didn't think I would be able to get it so I tried not to obsess over it like I usually do. Well what do you know, they put it up for sale on cricut.com of all places and at an affordable price, so I looked at the handbook and I fell in love. This cartridge is really pretty. Not only is the artwork beautiful, but so are the paper patterns that go with it. I am determined to use my cartridges as I get them and not just collect them. This is the card I made with my new Lori's Garden cartridge.


I love the colors and the patterns of this cartridge. I chose this grey background with the scipt and cut it using the 5x7 rectangle image that is on the Imagine itself. Then I cut this birdcage image. I love how it looks like a birdcage and a chandelier combined. I popped it up off the yellow patterned top not shape and added some pearls. Then I cut a border from the Martha Stewart Elegant Cakes cartridge and filled it with the salmony pink color on the cartridge. I added some sheer brown ribbon and fed it through the sentiment. I added some pearls to the sentiment as well. This a different look for me becuase my style is usally very cutesy, but I just love the look of this cartridge. I know my pal Sheri would love this one. It's got her name written all over it.
