The black arrow piece on the card was punched. Then because the sizing of my borders was a little off I used the same punch to "fringe" the bottom of the black layer!
Making a one of a kind card is always fun, giving it away to someone is even better. Today is my nephew Phillip's birthday & this card was for him! Happy Birthday Phillip!

If you have a Cricut Explore the image number is #M3EC3C, from the CTMH Artiste cartridge.The boxes you see here were cut 8" tall so I got just one box from each sheet of cardstock. If you'd like to get 2 boxes per 12 x 12 piece of cardstock cut the boxes 6.75 inches tall. Your machine will tell you that 1 box fits on a sheet. BUT! load your mat, cut the 1st box, unload the mat, turn it around and put it in the machine the other direction and the 2nd box will cut just fine! It's that easy!

Here is what inspired me...
And the roses really are really easy to craft!
To start I cut a 10" ring for the wreath base. Then I cut a dozen 8" flowers using the image on the CTMH Cricut Artiste cartridge. You can find this image on page 54 of the Artiste handbook or if you have a Cricut Explore the cutting code is #M441CA.I rolled the flowers and varied the shape and size of each flower as I glued them. There are 3 CTMH tools that will make this task very easy, the Quilling tool, the All Purpose silicone mat, and Liquid Glass. When you finish rolling each flower, use the Liquid Glass to secure it and hold the shape in place in your hand for a few seconds. Then place the rose on the mat to dry, it won't stick & any excess glue just wipes right off the mat!

The base page is a sheet for Whisper CS, then I added the zip strip from one of the B&T papers. I did some stamping, added some banner shaped pieces for color and shimmer trim for sparkle! The black photo mount is sized for a 4x6 photo.
My journaling block will be shaped like the banner pieces and placed under the photo.
The font on the banner is cut with the new CTMH Artistry cartridge.
Here's the Nevermore paper pack...
