Bonjour! This is day three of "Berry Week" here at Busy with the Cricky. Today's card is going to make all of you non-Cricut Circle members wish that you too had joined the Circle! I used two cartridges to create this card, Preserves for the raspberries, and French Manor, the first Cricut Circle exclusive cartridge, for the base card and lattice cuts.
French Manor has a lot of lovely European decor cuts, but also a wonderful selection of cards. I really liked the lattice cut (above in medium pink) and was thrilled to discover that there is a lattice cut card! I cut the base card in black and gray diamond print cardstock. I then cut the lattice in medium pink and the lattice border in a pink print. Using glue, I layered the pieces together.
As I stated above, the raspberries were cut using Preserves (which is perfect for Berry Week). I cut the base layer in a hot pink cardstock, then used Copic markers to color the stems. I cut the leaves in a lime green and again used Copics to add detail to the leaves. And the berry tops were cut in this great pink-on-pink print. I used a cat's eye ink around the edges of the berries before placing them on the card with pop dots.
The bonjour tag was created by layering an adhesive backed cardstock sticker to a circle of printed cardstock. I used a hole punch and added ribbon to finish the tag.
I thought you might like to see the side view of the card. I lined the inside of the card with white cardstock. If I were to make this same card again, I would probably choose a light pink to line the inside of the card.
I hope you will be back tomorrow for another berry project!
