Beautiful dreamer.....

This dreamy card was made with my latest aquisition, Art Nouveau. OMG! This cart is TO DIE FOR!!!
I can't tell you how I've wished for a cart with these kind of images on, and I have to tell you they are stunning. They are very easy to cut out and put together. I've made three cards so far with this image, and another one with a different head. Besides the heads (there are four in all)  there are four standing/sitting figures, numerous images including a dragonfly and scarab beetle, William Morris style flowers and two fonts! I have made two Christmas cards using this image and they are very easy to adapt. I'll show you those at a later date as they are for my Christmas Workshop, and my ladies get first look! I used Papermania's Rose Garden (??) papers for the card base which measures 8" x 5", and shimmer cardstock for the image. I prettied up the headdress with a Prima mini rose and some punched mini leaves. I added more punched leaves and teeny punched flowers to the circle frame. The pretty punched border is a Woodware border punch, which was embellished with pink satin ribbon and a bow with a jewelled hat pin pushed through it- I always stick a silver bugle bead on the end of the pins to make them safe to post- and a small Prima rose. 'Dream' was cut from pink shimmer cardstock, adhered to cream shimmer cardstock, then hand cut to create a shadow. It was adhered to the card with foam pads. A smattering of pearls completes the card. The Art Nouveau cart is available from craftsulove.co.uk and costs £49.99. They have sold out once and have re-stocked but I wouldn't wait too long if you want to get it as I can see it flying off the shelves again!

I love this cartridge too, Heather. All of the cuts are amazing. This is really something different for Cricut. It's not so cutesy, which I like too, but it's nice to see something very elegant. I'm anxious to get mine! I'm really excited about the Damask cartridge too! I have a few Fiskars and Martha Stewart border and corner punches, but I really like the border punches that you used. Especially on the head card with the prima flowers. I think you called the dream card. Do you know if we can get these in the U.S.? Anyway, beautiful cards! If not, I'm going to have to find some that are similar here. Once again, thank you for sharing your creative heart!

Hi Kathleen
Thank you for your lovely words. Regarding the Woodware punches, they are not available in an on-line shop, but if you put Woodware Border Punches into a search engine you may find a US stockist. Good Luck!
