Yarn Flower card :)

Have you been drooling over all of the new CHA releases? One of my favorites is Jillibean Soup. They have so many cute embellishments! One of which are these "bean blossoms".

I thought I would give it ago and try to make some myself :) I really like the result!


The challenge at Fantabulous Cricut was to use a "neglected" cartridge. Well dusted off Plantin Schoolbook to cut my circle bases for this flower. This one is cut at 2 1/2" which was the perfect size.


I used scraps of Basic Grey's "Green at Heart" (one of my all time favorites from Basic Grey) and added a white border with my Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch. The "If friends were flowers, I'd pick you" sentiment was printed on my computer.

Thanks for looking! Let me know if you try it :)
