Exploring Cricut Daily Project -Sweet Cherries

Good Morning! Today is my day to share at Exploring Cricut. I decided to make a larger card than normal and am glad I did. Sometimes you just need a little more room:) I used Lyrical Letters for the cherries and while I love this cartridge there are no layers for the cuts. So, Gypsy to the rescue. I duplicated and hid certain pieces that I would not need to make the cherries.

For the green leaf, I positioned it on the mat so only the leaf in green would cut and I wasn't wasting paper. This can also be done if you have Design Studio or the new Craft Room. I find it really helps to get the most out of my cartridges when I can manipulate the cuts.

I hand cut the white paper to put the sentiment on and created the paisley paper using my Cuttlebug and chalks. I chalked around the sentiment as well.

5 x 7 base
Cherries - Lyrical Letters 3.47"

Really sweet card & sentiment!! I love being able to not waste paper too- although it makes me keep EVERY scrap- and then you have drawers full of scraps (at least I do) :)Amy

I forget there is more on Lyrical Letters than just letters! Love the sentiment with the cherries!
