My Cricut Craft Room- Card Creating Tuesdays

Welcome to Funky Cards and
 Card Creating Tuesdays

Good morning and welcome back to My Cricut Craft Room Card Creating Tuesdays.  I hope to inspire you with my work today and to encourage you to try something new! As you know, each week I will be sharing with you new cards that I have designed and adding a few tips that I have learned along the way. 

Balance is important when designing projects.  For this card, I used the three flowers to balance the card.  I purposely placed one flower at the top and two flowers at the bottom so your eyes would look from the top to the bottom of the card.    

Simply Sweet Cartridge- Butterfly
Paper Flowers
Gel Pens

***Tip of the Day***
  If you missed my previous tips, you can click: 

***When you make greeting cards are you tempted to make them all situation specific?  For example, I knew that I  would be using this card as a birthday card.  Does that mean I have to put "Happy Birthday" on the card?  What happens if something else unexpectedly comes up and I need a card ASAP and I don't have time to make one?  By leaving it blank on the outside I have left myself options in case I change my mind or need to use it for something else.

I can always stamp "Happy Birthday" on the inside to personalize it just before sending it out.  Of course that doesn't mean that I do this for all cards.  I make plenty of personalized "Happy Birthday" cards.  I just like to have blank cards too that I can have on hand and personalize when I need them!  If you have any questions, please feel free to email me anytime at funkycards @ charter dot net (no spaces).
