The Everything ABC Blog Hop- Letter V

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter V.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever  the crafter has chosen as their V element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you are at the beginning!

V is for Vase and my vase came from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, in fact it is from the letter V page!
I cut the vase and flowers out of a scrap of the Brushed paper and the sentiment is the retired Buttercup paper backed with Sky (retired but very similar to Glacier).  The base of the card is Garden Green, retired, and the insert is Indian Corn Blue. The base was cut from our new Artfully Sent Cartridge  on page 30 Using the Sleeve feature and and shift Envelope 1 and cut at a height of 7 and width of 10.

Basically the entire card except the base was made from scraps!  Designing the card started in Cricut Craft Room to get the right sizing of the vase and flowers for the opening on the card front.  Then I found the with Sympathy Sentiment on The Artfully Sent Cartridge on page 16 and you use the icon key and y for the With Sympathy.

It took me longer to figure out what I wanted to do than to actually do it!  It was so quick and easy and a great way to use scraps!

  1. Very beautiful card! I need to make a Sympathy card for a friend and I didn't even realize Cricut had this sentiment available! Great use of the letter "V" ... I would have struggled coming up with something, LOL. TFS!

  2. A beautifully pieced together sympathy card- the colours work well together too. I love the Cricut!

  3. Pretty card! Love our cartridges.
