Dahlia Cricut Cut


I was at Pottery Barn this weekend, drooling over all the pretty things there, and I came across this beautiful white pillow with green dahlia leaves embroidered on it. SO ELEGANT. Someday my kids will be past the age of spilling cocoa on the couch and I will be able to buy pretty things again, until then, I thought I better pass on the pillow and turn it into a card. This is a cricut cut file using Home Accents. The cut file was a bear to make, took me about 2 hours to get all the petals in an orientation that looked nice and would cut good on my very dull blade (gotta get a new one!). BUT, once it was finished I could quickly make a few cards which I am very happy with. I'm sure I will be using this one many times over, which makes the time spent worth it.
Hopefully, somebody else will be able to use it too!

The three samples are:

cut from white, over dark solid
cut from kraft, over patterned paper
cut from patterned, over white

Design Studio .cut file is attached below, enjoy! I will convert later today for SCAL, right now I have to feed the kids :)

You make such beautiful files!! Thank you for all you do!! I was wondering, how do you convert cut files to svg? This is something that I haven't been able to accomplish.
Thank you.
