Mother’s Day and Flower Cricut Cards

Once again I am posting the free cuts in the Cricut Craft Room.  I should have gotten to these earlier since it says they are only on from May 1-8th of 2013.  They are titled Mother’s Day cards, so I am not really sure which cartridge you would have to buy to get these cuts.  I think they could be used for many occasions.  If you haven’t already loaded the Cricut Craft Room to your computer…do it now and let’s get busy making some free cards!

This is the first card we will cut.  First you open the Cricut Craft Room and go to my cartridges and the free cuts for the week will show up.  Then since this card has layers, I first chose the size for the main card.  You also had the option to make the envelope, but since I am a former Postal employee, I didn’t want my card to fit in an odd size envelope and be subject to a surcharge in postage.  I made my card to fit into a 4 1/2 x 6″ envelope.

You will size the card (orange) and then hit the plus sign by the layer tab.  This will give you a new layer , yellow in this case.  Now size the liner to fit your card.  Next you can add another layer and size in the flower pieces.

Now you will need to move the flower layers to different areas on your mat so that they will cut separate.

Now this is the really cool part. You can cut do all the cuts in one layer at the same time.  Just position the different card stock where your cuts should be according to the layer.

Now hit cut and choose the layer you what to cut from the top drop down box on the cut screen.

I used a hammer and this tool (not sure what you call it) to put the hole in the center of the flower so I could add some “bling”.

Do the same method for the rest of the cards.  Place the main card and then add the layers to fit the size you picked.

I added three flowers to the card.

I cut one set of tulips out of patterned paper and one out of plain and made a little snip on the top layer to look more like tulip petals.

Now don’t throw away the scraps from your projects.  This is what I did with the scraps.  The center of the card cuts will be used inside a future card.  The outline of the Mother can be cut down and the corners rounded to use again.  The extra tulip petals looked like Easter eggs and went into my Easter drawer.

I hope you have enjoyed these cards and the cuts were free.  You can use these free cuts on any machine.  You don’t have to buy anything to use the Cricut Craft Room. Happy Mother’s Day!!

  1. Okay, I’m downloading Cricut Craft Room today. I’ve been wanting to weld letters together for titles. My kids at Starlight do better attaching one word rather than each individual letter.
