Tuesday Trigger Challenge: A Burst of Blooms

I've been trying to use my Cricut more; I've got an idea list a mile long, but I just haven't had a chance to implement much of it. Then I saw this week's Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World:


And I knew I had to make this:


 I used the Don Juan Cricut cartridge's "Stitched" option to create my own "sewing card." The initial holes were WAY too small, so I went back over them using a paper piercer and foam mat. After that it was just a matter of stitching up the design (while watching a couple of episodes of How I Met Your Mother). It was a little more time-consuming than the cards I usually make, but I really enjoyed making it - there's just something so relaxing about working with a needle and thread!

Card Supplies:
Ink: Ranger Distress Ink (Antique Linen); Accessories: Cricut / Don Juan cartridge, Cuttlebug / Distressed Stripes embossing folder, corner rounder punch, embroidery floss, foam tape
