Hydrangea cards - Cricut DS and Home Accents




I love hydrangeas and I've been thinking that I need to buy the Martha punch, but I can never seem to get up there before my coupon expires. I thought I'd try to just make one with cricut and I found that one of the shapes on HA works nicely (with a slight alteration). There are two styles on the file, one for big hydrangea and one for small flowers to just layer over a flourish (second card). I started with purple/blue swirly paper to simplify the coloring process. I used a gold pen for accents and put some of the flowers on pop dots for dimension. For the leaves on the larger card I wanted a more embossed look rather than layered look, so I cut both layers from the same color cardstock. File attached, thanks for looking.

Gorgeous! If you didn't mention it, I would have thought the leaves WERE embossed!

Thank you so much for so generously sharing the cutfiles for these flowers. Your cards are beautiful! I used your wonderful flowers to embellish a pop up cake I made for my mom. You can take a peek at it here:
