Rose Squares Mother’s Day Card

This Rose Squares Mother’s Day Card is a remake of a birthday card I did last year.  Cricut has come a long way with drawing pictures and I took advantage of that to make this card.  The concentric frames on the front create a unique effect and look fabulous.

I love the rose drawing on this card and it is a great improvement.  Mom will love this card.

You will need:
        • Heavy cardstock for the base
        • Foam Tape (optional)
        • Pen
        • Glue
        • Download File
Paper Selection
Patterned paper really won’t work on this card because of all lf the drawings.  And the paper needs to be somewhat heavy (about 100 lb. wt) to stay stiff enough.  The base card also needs to be two sided because you do see both sides.
Cutting the card

Cut the card base and the cricut will do the writing. Did you know that you can use any pen in your cricut?  See the trick here.  This is a simple card to make but takes a while on the machine to draw all these roses.  

As an added little bonus, the cutout frames leave a nice decorated remnant that I plan to use in a scrapbook page as a frame sometime.

This project uses a font called Antiqueline and you can get it for free at Dafont.com.

Assembly

I didn’t add any foam tape to this Rose Squares Mother’s Day Card but that would be a lovely variation.  You could make either the inside square the tallest or the outside square the tallest.  I did the old card that way.  It adds a bit of dimension to the card as you can see below.  That card design and tutorial are available here.

To make this Rose Squares Mother’s Day Card, first glue each square to the front of the card in a concentric pattern.  The hardest part of this is making sure that you have the squares right side up.  You can see the design as you go.  Make sure to keep them all right side up.

Then you can glue the flower to the inside.

As a side note, save the cut outs between the squares.  They make nice patterned frames in a future project you might do.

And your Rose Squares Mother’s Day Card is done!  It fits in an A7 envelope for mailing.
