Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you,
not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.
Luke 12: 27
Welcome to Digi Desserts Fridaze in connection with Cooking with Cricut / Paper CraftingWorld! We, on the Design Team, were to create a project using a Digital File from CWC/PCW for today. I chose to use the new – and FREE this week! – file, “Flowers ‘n’ Bees” that Melin has just designed. I decided to use this digital file in creating a belated birthday card that would be appropriate for a masculine recipient – a fairly plain and simple design – A fairly quick and easy to ‘bake’ card!
Here are the Ingredients:
* Dark brown cardstock
* The digi file printed on white cardstock
* Three pieces of coordinating cardstock
* A 1/8” hole punch
* Sentiment printed on cardstock
* Zigzag scissors to trim sentiment
I cut the brown cardstock and folded it. I used my Cricut/SCAL2 to cut the ovals – one to just fit the digi file print and then three more in graduated sizes. I inked the edges of all of them. I adhered them, offsetting them to the left bottom edge. I put Glossy Accents on the wings of the bees to make them shine. I punched holes on 2 edges of the card – ½” apart – and threaded twine through them, tying the ends to the card and placing a drop of Crystal Lacquer on each to prevent them from becoming untied. I typed the sentiment in WORD, printed it and cut it with the zigzag scissors, then adhered it to the card.
Here is the file I used - There are several options included.
