MS All Occasions Shape Card

I love the Martha Stewart cake cartridges!! Martha just always seems to do it better. I had to have these (All Occasions and Seasonal) because I fell in love with the borders, but look at this wonderful wreath that was on All Occasions! I made it into a shape card that is just perfect for saying 'hello' to a friend.

This card is about 4.5 x 4.75. I used my Gypsy to hide the inside contours of the wreath, made two copies of that and welded them together to cut the white shape card. Then I cut the wreath in green for the vine, and did the shift cut in yellow for the flowers. I did the flowers twice so I could cut some of them out and pop them up for dimension. I think the sentiment is perfect because these yellow flowers remind me of the summer sun. I would be happy to share the cut file for this card if anybody is interested. There is a 'contact me' link on my blog, just send an email and ask for the sunshine flower cut file. In fact, if you are interested in cut files, click here for two window cards I have cut files for using  the Cindy Loo cartridge; if anybody wants them, I will be happy to email them.

Materials used in this card:
Gypsy, Cricut & Martha Stewart All Occasions Cake Art cartridge
Paper: green and yellow cardstock - Bazzill; white cardstock - Papertrey Ink
Ink: Tim Holtz distress inks for the edges of my cuts; Memento Dew Drops for the sentiment
