Mother's Day Bouquet Seasonal Cricut Cartridge
Woo hooooo!

Alright, time to kick off all the inspiration by sharing my project...{don't forget to leave me some "love too" pretty please} :

I made this adorable Tri-Fold Gift Card Holder to give a Mom so she has a little extra little spending money...who wouldn't love that !   

I used my new E2 and the two exclusive Just a Note and Cricut Alphabet Cartridges to create the tri-fold card.  I cut the card at 5.50 inches.

I added the word "Mom" to the inside of the card with the Cricut American Alphabet cartridge
and outlined the lettering with a white ink pen.

 On the inside of the card, I added a pocket and placed the gift card in the pocket. I added a tab so Mom knows to pull the gift card out. I also cut out the "I HEART You" with the Cricut American Alphabet cartridge. Again, outlining with white gel pen.

Now the card is ready for a signature and to make Mom very happy !
