There are actually two cartridges to cover from the Martha Stewart Cake Art line from Cricut. I've been able to do a lot more with the Seasonal Cake Art cartridge so if you have completed projects with the Martha Stewart Elegant Cake Art, then please feel free to share your creations. With Christmas just around the corner, these two cartridges will make great gifts for the crafter in your life.
Cricut Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art
Happy Mother's Day
For this fun Mother's Day card we used the Flower Shoppe Cricut cartridge for the flower. The largest flower petals were cut out from Cricut cardstock at 3 inches and then decreased in size by 0.25 inches to 1.5 inches. The center was cut out at 2 inches and I used a Megan Elizabeth Sparkle Lightz for the center of the flower.
"Happy Mother's Day" is from the Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art cartridge at 1.5 inches. The overall size of the card is 5x7 inches, but with the flower being so large and bulky it won’t fit in an envelope. This is a card that you definitely want to be able to hand-deliver.
One wasn't enough, so I came up with another Mother's Day card. The one above is probably more geared towards a grandmother, whereas this one to the left is a little "louder" and maybe for a younger Mother. Each card definitely has its own personality.
I cut out the borders at 1 inch and "Happy Mother's Day" cut out at 1 inch as well.
The overall size of this card is 4 x 6 and was super easy and quick card to make. I love the way Cricut machines make these projects so quick and convenient.
This is such a fun cartridge to make quick cards, scrapbook layouts or even home decor and of course cut out fondant if you have a Cricut Cake Machine.
Various Seasonal Cake Art Cards
This first one was cut out at 6" for just the two layers. I did use the gypsy to weld the back image together to make a fun shape card, and stamped Easter Joy. Super easy and quick card.
This card is a 4 x 6 card. the grass is cut out at 2" and the chick with her egg is 2" as well. Happy Easter is 1.5 inches. The phrases on this cartridge is great, I didn't have a problem with it being to thin and ripping coming off the mat. And it has Happy Easter in a couple of different designs.
This card I made as a Mother's Day card. The overall size of this card is 4 x 5.5" ( not a standard size). The flower bouquet was cut out at 5". I cut each of the images out twice. That way I could have green stems and a red ribbon with pink and purple flowers. Inside each of the flowers is a Girls Best Friend Sparkle Light.
The overall size of the card is 4” x 6”. The fence was cut out at 2.5” (this does make it longer than 6”) but I just trimmed it down to fit the size.
I was more looking for the height. The pumpkins are just starbursts (cut out at 1.25”). Add some cute faces and a little ribbon for stems, and those starbursts will look like pumpkins!
Please share your creations because this is the only one I've made with this awesome cartridge. Show me what you came up with! Make the most out of your Cricut cartridges and save with CraftDirect. You can never have too many fresh Cricut blades and replacement Cricut cutting mats.
