flower Soft... have you heard of these yet??

I was at Frozen in Time (maize rd) on saturday browsing around and saw these awesome cards that had a 3d effect....  I was in Awe and also broke...  so...  I just asked a lot of questions and drooled a bit over the awesome colors.  (can you imagine that huh??  lol)

well... the flower soft is also the name of the company.  It is a "flock" style look.  There is a glue that you put on the area of interest and you put this 'flower soft' stuff on it and it gives it an awesome awesome look!!  

They had as an example a tree (autum look) and used colors of fall on these branches.  it was AWESOME...

let me know if you have used it or will try it..  :)  curious....   I someday hope to have these lil containers....

Have a fantastic 1st day of Spring tomorrow!

pss.....  check out for the cool AWESOME new cartridges.  that I WANT... NEED... (ya know how that goes...)

happy birthday card made by RosemaryUsing Wild Card cricut cartridge

Using the Wild Card Cartridge this 9in long x 6.25in wide with the real dial size on.  The envelope that matches the card also used the real dial size.  When doing the layers.don't use the real dial size. make sure it is turned off but is same size as the card.  You can measure the layers with the card on the gypsy before you cut them.

the variety of colors are awesome in making this card for the men in our lives!
This is the envelope.  the sizes and details for cutting this is above.  Isn't this a pretty card!
