Cricut Machine or access to one such as in a scrapbooking store
Cartridge - Give A Hoot
Cardstock paper in five colors [green, yellow, orange, purple, blue]
Bazzill Basics Paper Cardstock Strips - Cloverleaf
Martha Stewart's stamp ink - Lilac
Start with making the base of your card by cutting out a rectangle that measures 8 inches by 4 inches with a ruler and scissors. Fold this in half using a bone folder. To start making the front, using your Give A Hoot cartridge, cut out one Hmmngbrd in yellow that is 2 1/2 inches. Then, cut out one layer Hmngbd-s that is also 2 1/2 inches in orange. Next, cut out one layer Hmngdb in purple (2 1/2 inches). Glue these together. Because your stem on your flower will still be yellow, I used some paper from the Bazzill Basics Paper Cardstock Strips - Cloverleaf to glue over that part and then cut out. I used the remaining Cloverleaf Cardstock Strips to decorate the outside edges.
On the inside I used Martha Stewart's ink (color = lilac) and a simple stamp to finish my card. I also stamped the back in the same color with my "homemade by danielle" logo.
