This card is for my card class!!!...and I am so excited...they voted on a Valentine card for Monday.... this is what I came up with... it is one of my all time favorite cards ever...I love the bright colors... it just made me happy...and I love the idea of peeking inside the tree and seeing the special treat awaiting inside... I hope that you love this card too!!!... and I really really hope that my wonderful group of sweet sweet ladies love it!!!...I really think they are going to be excited!

Tree and its layers cut @ h3.73 inches... the width will be right if  you set the height... on the Cricut I would cut this @ 3 3/4 inches.
Bird nest and its layers cut @ h 1.31 inches the width will be right on all layers if you set the height...I cut 3 sets of layers one in brown for the in blue for the layer for the wings..and one in black for the hat......on the Cricut I would cut this at 1 1/4 inches.
My Community
Fence cut @ w 1.49 x h 0.86... I put 4 of these on the mat...flipping the last one from side to side.... I overlapped them...grouped them and welded them... overlap them so they will fit in your background square....on the Cricut I would cut these @ 1 inch..and overlap them to make the fence the length I needed.
Doodle Charms
Sun cut @ h 2.79 inches...on the Cricut  I would cut this at 2 3/4 inches.
Circle cut @ h 1.53 inches... do not weld it... place this in the tree where you you want your birds and nest so that you will have a "hole" in your tree.

OH Jeannie,
This card is unbelieveably adorable. I am sure that your card class loved you to pieces for doing this card.

Maybe my bf will get 2 Valentine's Day cards. This year is very unique because Valentine's falls on Chinese New Years too =) So I was thinking of putting the two themes together =)

Thank you so much for sharing such an amazing card!

Thank you for the inspiration that you continually provide.

Jeannie, the card is super and the birdies in the nest are super cute but what attracted me was the tiny two hearts "carved" on the tree trunk :) Love that detail!!!

Cindy said...

I have a love-hate relationship with virtual memory because of the way prices are always dropping. I absolutely hate buying SDs for my R4 / R4i at (what seems to be) a bargain price only to see it become a whole lot cheaper a few weeks later.

1st - Congrats on your Chirp Mention!! 2nd - I LOVE your work!! You have such wonderful talent. I've really let my card making slide. I'm inspired to put more effort into it after seeing your terrific work!

I see you're in Southside, AL. I grew up in B'ham. Got married in Highlands Methodist (the church at the fountain). IDK, how you could have 2 kids and one go to AU and the other AL!! LOL!! It was tough enough when I went to UAB and my younger brother years later graduated from AU. We grew up AL fans. IDK how he could cheer for AU now, LOL!!

Best Wishes!

You're amazing and definitely blessed!!

I LOVE this card!! I teach classes at my local scrapbook store. Would it be alright if I did this card as a class?? I promise to give you proper credit! I may not even use the same carts. Your card has sparked an inspiration for me using another cart.

I saw this in the Cricut Chirp and fell in love with it. (I remember commenting on the MB at the time.) I've had the idea in my mind since then and have wanted to do something with it. I finally did! I posted the card on my blog if you are interested to see. It's not quite as detailed as yours, but I'm happy with it. However, I wanted to thank YOU for the inspiration. I've always admired your work. Thank you Jeannie!!
