Sunflower Cardmaking Workshop

This cardmaking workshop was inspired by my love for Sunflowers, they just make my smile.  I hope they make you smile too! You will need the following CTMH Cricut cartridges to complete this project and the Cricut EXPLORE machine to access the cutting files.
  • Art Philosophy
  • Artiste
You will also need the following cardstock:
  • White Daisy (QTY7)
  • Kraft (QTY4)
  • Cocoa (QTY2)
  • Honey(QTY2)
The CDS(Cricut Design Space) file includes 5 cards, three 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 c/w envelopes and two 6x6 cards.  The envelopes for these cards are made using the CTMH score board, please see the how-to tutorial HERE.

The entire ready to go project will take you approximately 30 minutes to cut. Each card is saved individually, otherwise the entire project is simply to large to cut.

Please see my tutorial for the Sunflowers HERE. I recommend a using an older Cricut Mat some of the cut images are very delicate a used mat makes it easier to pull them off without tearing .

I so wish these files came in CCR! I just can't justify buying another cutting machine 😯 (I already have a Cricut and Silhouette)
