I don't know about you, but I really love Anna Griffin designs. I love her artwork and what she draws. If you are a fan of Anna Griffin like me, then you will be super happy this month. Today is the first two of Anna Griffin cartridges being released this month, and both of these cartridges have some super beautiful images on them. Save on both cartridges with our exclusive Anna's Cards cartridge bundle that includes a 3-piece tool kit.
Cricut included everything really you would expect from an Anna Griffin cartridge. They both also have some great phrases included with them, so if you have the Cricut Explore machine you can have it write them out. Honestly, this is my favorite feature of Explore machines. I don't like to write on my cards, I want it to look neat and professional. Stamps often just don't say enough, so I really enjoy the fact that my Cricut machine will write it for me.
Making this Flower Card
So for all the details of this card. When I was looking at Anna's Garden Cards & Embellishments Cricut cartridge, I kept thinking I just want to have the machine draw the image on it. With the black pen set, I used the Explore to draw my images. You will want to attach your image to a patterned cardstock rectangle. Mine was 4.25" x 5.5" so that I have enough room to control where the image sits on the card.
Then I just used my markers and pencils to color in the image to make it fun and colorful. It really didn't take much time and I love how it turned out. It looks like the image was drawn by hand, giving the card that little something extra - simultaneously professional but hand-made.
Here is the inside of the card it says; "Life is a journey, and love is what makes that journey worthwhile."
