Lovely Red Rose Cricut Birthday Card

It’s so much fun to make cards on my Cricut Explore! All the different cartridge choices make it even more fun, not to mention what they have available in Design Space. One cartridge I’ve bought was Anna’s Lovely Layered Cards. Simple and easy cards are fantastic to have available, but I also like to make cards with multiple layers and depth, like I did with the Lovely Daisy Cricut Birthday Card using that cartridge. For this Lovely Red Rose Cricut Birthday Card, I chose the rose design and decided to go with a red rose instead of the pink used in the example. Heck, that what’s so amazing about making your own cards–you can use any colors you want. I love that! Let’s get started.

Whew! So many layers! That’s okay, though, the final result is definitely worth it. I love all of the beautiful layered cards on this Anna’s lovely layered Cards cartridge and this Lovely Red Rose Cricut Birthday Card is no exception. You can easily swap out the colors to make the rose your recipient’s favorite color. One tip I will pass on to you is to use as thin a paper and cardstock as you can find because those layers add up fast! This will definitely take more than one stamp, too, lol.
