Butterfly Kisses Card

For my project today, I made this card for my friend who just had a baby girl.  She is not a girly girl and did not want the nursery in girly colors, so I added brown ribbon and mushrooms. 

I dusted off my Cricut Imagine for this project!   I took some plain vellum and printed a pink mushroom pattern on it.  

I used Nursery Tails for the mushroom border and the butterfly kisses image.  My Gypsy and Imagine do not play nice and I have not really mastered Cricut Craft Room, so I had to guess on the sizes of the images.  I felt like I was crafting blind!

I also try to print and cut out several items so I don't waste paper.  The duck scene is for my kid's bathroom!

Next I selected a 5x7 rectangle and flood filled it with the pink mushroom paper background.  This worked as I did not know the exact size card base I would need.  I could not use the Print Paper option as it will print a 12x12 paper and my vellum is 8 1/2 x 11.

I printed the vellum and let it dry, then trimmed it to fit my card.

I adhered the brown crinkle ribbon on the front of the card.  Next I covered the ribbon with the mushroom border.

I put a strip of adhesive on the top of the border (where the tied ribbon would cover) and put adhesive where the butterfly kisses image would cover and glued the vellum on.  

I put a tiny bit of adhesive on the top corners as well.  I adhered the butterfly kisses on the vellum.  I tied the bow and used a glue dot to hold the bow in place.

I have not used vellum in a long time as I have (still) not found an adhesive that doesn't show through.   I would love to know if you have found an adhesive that doesn't show through!!

Very nice card. I'm trying to use my Imagine more as well. I love that cartridge too. I think it was the first cartridge I bought for the Imagine.
