May Your Dreams Take Flight

My niece leaves at the end of April for 27 months in Guatemala through the Peace Corp. This is the card I made for her send off party in another week. I was very excited to get my Lori’s Garden Cricut Imagine cartridge this week and new this image would be perfect for the card.
I started with a white card stock base scored and folded to 5 1/2” X 4 1/4”. This is a portrait card. I used my imagine and the color and patterns pallets on the cartridge to bring a yellow mat and a pink patterned paper mat. The yellow mat was cut  5 1/4” 4 1/4” and I then used a small scallop border punch by EK Success to punch the bottom of the yellow mat. For the pink patterned paper mat I cut it to 5” X 3 3/4” and used the same border punch. I added a butter yellow sheer and satin ribbon to the lower part of my card. I cut the butterfly using the layers feature at 4”. I used pop dots between the layers and added the entire image to the card with pop dots as well. My sentiment says May your dreams take flight. I added some pearls to the upper right hand corner of the card. The card went together fairly quickly. Thanks for visiting.
