You are invited to share with me the Joy there is in creating Art. I mean the "I can do it" and "it's fun" and "it's beautiful" kind of art, whether it is "museum quality" or not. Here you will find some of what I like to do and, I hope, share some of your joy, too.

Welcome to my blog, Rae Ann.

Art Nouveau for Exploring Cricut and More

Hello.  Is spring finally here?  These flowery cards fit right in.

I enjoy making cards to order.  For these I was asked to make cards for a woman who loves pansies and hummingbirds. They are both A2 size cards and were made with Cricut's Art Nouveau cartridge.

I  placed a small jewel in the center of each pansy to add sparkle.   I did a little shaping to the petals to add some dimension.
In the first card, I printed the sentiment on white cardstock before I ran it through the embosser.  Some pop dots are used for depth.
 The second card uses the design as it is appears in the booklet.  A touch of distress ink around the edges makes a big difference. and produces a finished look.  I hope you like them.

Thanks for stopping by and happy creating.
