I needed a graduation card for a dear friend of mine Brittney… and NannaDonna from the Cricut Message board ask me to join her sketch challenge this week… sketch challenges are really hard for me .. So I was excited when I made this one work out… I so hope Donna is proud of this!!…thank you so so much for looking!!… I love your comments they mean the world to me… Hugs, Jeannie

Walk in My Garden
Flowers (I cut 2 per flower and layered them.. See video) cut @ w 1.11 x h 1.07 … I cut 16 of these total… on the Cricut I would cut these @ 1 ¼ inches.
Give a Hoot
Leaves cut @ w 1.09 x h .69 .. I didn’t use them all … on the Cricut I would cut these @ ¾ an inch.
Pooh and Friends
Bee and its layers cut @ w 1.51 x h 1.43...on the Cricut I would cut these at 1 ½ inches.
Tag cut @ w 2 10 x h 3.93.. You will have to unlink the width and height to get this size….using the Cricut I would hand cut this @ a tad bit larger than 2 inches wide and then I would cut it at 4 inches tall.
Circles for flower centers cut @ w o.36 x h 0.32.…on the Cricut I would cut these 1/4 and inch… I also put one of these circles in the tag to make the hole… Do not weld this to the tag just group.
Rectangle for pocket of card cut @ w 0.36 x h 1.39... You will have to unlink the width and height for this shape....using the Cricut I would cut this with my paper cutter 3 1/2 inches wide and just between 2 1/4 and 2 1/2 inches tall and use a hole punch for the whole in the tag.
Flourish cut @ w 3.74 x h 1.39.. You will have to ungroup the width and height for this cut… I cut two of these…one I welded to the rectangle…..using the Cricut I would have to guess at this cut… I worked with it on my Gypsy and I think you can cut it at 1 inch and that will work.

Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful and inspirational work! I can always pick out your cards when I'm scrolling down the pictures of my blog updates, and am always excited, knowing I'm in for a treat! Would you mind showing how you do the backs of your cards sometime? Is it a stamp? It looks so professional. Thanks again!
