With Spring just around the corner and Passover and Easter coming I made a card that you can use for either holiday.
You can also make and send this card for a birthday or even Mother’s Day. This easy to make layered card that can be cut out using your Cricut, and has an embossed layer.
Use your flower shaping tools and mat to give the flowers on the front of this card some shape so that they don’t lay flat. Homemade cards are always great to give and receive for any occasion.

Cutting Out the Spring Flowers Card
Unzip the download file.
Then open up Design Space and start a new project.
Click Upload and find where you saved the unzipped version of the downloaded files for this project.

and click on
Then click on the Make It button
The prepare screen will appear
Now if everything looks correct on it, click on the continue button
The next screen will be where you will select the type of card stock you are using. If you do not see the material in your material favorites, click on "browse all materials" to find the weight of cardstock that you are using. For example the green Cardstock I used is medium weight, you will need to select "Medium Weight"..
Once you have Design Space set, you are now ready to prepare your mat. I used a brayer when placing the Cardstock on the mat, this helps in making sure that the paper is adhered to the mat and will help in keeping the paper from ripping or moving when it is being cut.
