As August march's forward toward September and Fall, I just wanted to make a card to celebrate summer.
I started with a white card base cut and scored to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base. I added a green mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4 and then the bright yellow polka dot mat cut at 3 7/8" X 5 1/8".
Using the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge and my Cricut Explore I cut the mat for my image at 3 3/4". I ran the white layer through the 3 dots Sizzix embossing folder. My Violets are from a Memory Box die. I cut the stems and leaves out of the same green as the mat. The flowers themselves were die cut from mid purple colored card stock I used my Wink of Stella clear been to give the flowers some shimmer and used some Cantaloupe Liquid Pearls to add the center to my flowers. The flowers are glued directly to the mat and the mat is attached with foam tape to the card base.
