My mom's birthday is Friday. I know Iris are one of her favorite flowers. I found this print and cut image in the Cricut Design Space under Vintage Floral. I had to buy this cartridge as it was not included with the subscription. This image is a print and cut image. I cut my image at 4"
I started with white card stock cut and folded to may a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base. I added a black mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4". I then cut a purple mat 3 7/8" X 5 1/8". I embossed the purple mat using my eBosser and the Camille Lace embossing folder. I adhered the purple mat to the black mat and adhered my image using foam tape to the purple mat. I added a sheer ribbon to the card and then attached the black mat and its layers to the white card base.
I used a Poppystamps banner die to cut my tag for my sentiment and stamped it with Memento Tuxedo black ink. I used foam tape to adhere it to the front of my card.
I think she will love it. I plan to make lunch and take it to her and I am hoping to take Aiden my grandson too. But, shhhhhhh. . . It is supposed to be a surprise.
