Exploring Cricut Challenge

Happy Monday everyone!  It is challenge day over at Exploring Cricut.  Today Diane challenged us to make a project using 2 cricut cuts and a Monogram.  This was a tricky one for me to be honest.  I thought long and hard before I came up with something I liked.  Here is the project I made:

At first glance, this may seem like I cheated, but I didn't :)  I used my Gypsy girl to magically weld 2 cuts into one.  The flower is from A Child's Year and the frame it is welded to, is from Lyrical Letters.  The monogram "T" is from Quarter Note.  You can't really tell in the pictures, but I inked around the edges with some color.  The flower is inked with pink and the stem and leaves are inked with green.  These are 4x4 cards.  I am loving that size, they a perfect for note cards.

Here is the set I made - they are going to be a simple back to school gift for my daughter's teacher.  I hope she likes them!

Hop on over to Exploring Cricut, see what the amazing DT came up with to inspire you, and be sure to play along with us.  There might even be a prize :)  Also, you should stop by Exploring Cricut every day, the DT members have daily inspiration for you!!
