Flower Card with Brandie 5/20

Hi there friends! Brandie here with a cute flower card I made with the Shaped Card Flower 1 file. (SVG, Silhouette). This card comes together very easily and can be cut in any color to reflex the time and season.

For this card I cut the petals three times in concentric layers and the flower center twice. I then stitched through the petals for added texture and detail.


This card will defiantly brighten someone's day. Thanks for stopping by today!

Hi there and welcome to the Lori Whitlock Creative Team Blog Hop! We are so glad you are here. The hop order this month is Anita, Brandie, Michelle, Aimee, Ashley, and Corri.

Now that graduation season is here I am sharing this card I made for sweet graduate. I used the Pop Up Box Card Graduation Airplane (SVG, Silhouette) and the Pop Up Box Card Hot Air Balloons (SVG, Silhouette). I liked the sentiments on the airplane card and the hot air balloons so I took both and came up with this.

Easter House Ornament Tutorial

Hi there friends! Brandie here with a tutorial for the Easter house ornament. These little ornaments are darling hanging on spring branches but I also think they would make cute place settings for your Easter dinner table.

I used the  House Ornament Easter Bundle from Lori's shop. Each ornament is also in the Silhouette store. Easter basket, Easter lamb, Chocolate bunny, Easter chick. and Easter bunny. The paper is textured cardstock in spring colors.

I uploaded all of the houses into Cricut Design Space, attached the score lines, and flattened the d├ęcor pieces (turned them into a print and cut) to make the decorating easier.  I also color synced the white and yellow items.


Once everything was cut I folded the score lines. Most of the score lines are mountain folds except for the roof peaks. Valley folds shown below. I also inked the edges of my windows and doors.


While the house was still flat I glued the windows and doors first, then the grass. I added glue to the sides tabs then folded the house in half and tucked the tabs in to glue into place.


I then shaped the roof on the house. Folding  the top tabs down into the house and pushing the sides of the house towards the center to create the eaves.


I then added glue to the inside corners then pinched together until dry. I applied  glue to the top of house then lined up the hole in the roof with the whole in the house and held together while glue dried.


For the chimney I added glue to the outside tab and folded in half to create a box. Then added glue to remaining tabs and held down on roof until dry. (for my other houses I cut a small rectangle from scrap paper and glued to the bottom of the chimney then glued to the house.)
I then tied some decorative yarn into a loop and threaded through the whole in the roof.


I then folded the bottom tabs in adding glue to each layer to secure the bottom of the house. I then repeated the steps for the remaining houses.


I then decorated the houses with the cute characters, eggs, and flowers.




Thanks for stopping by today and  I hope you enjoy your holiday weekend!
