yep finally used my cricut! For this cartridge.
I had not updated for a while and the latest updates sucked so waited before updating as for the life of me I cannot (ok I can but I prefer ) use the cricut without gypsy . Also when you have other toys you have got to play with them especially when you can be a bit lazy and print and cut and match and not use your paper stash! That's why I got an Imagine but that dang thing needs updates too and lol updating that is a nightmare!
But Sigh one has to use their paper stash or so my friends tell me and after a long time I splurged and got some cartridges and Ribbons and Rosettes was one of them. Now I like this cartridge for borders but the Rosettes are a bit PIA. It is a bit of trial and error as you do not know how many pieces you have to cut. I cut mine at 2.5 but wish I had cut at 2 or 1.5. I hacked off about 3/4" and I initially cut just 1 piece though I could see that it would not be enough but since it was G I could reload the paper and place a 2 or 3 more in the uncut regions of the paper .
so if the size is about 2 " cut 3 or preferable 4 pieces to form the Rosette. And I think the centers are not automatically sized as mine cut a bit too big. Have to cut more to make sure of this
The frame is Ornamental Iron 2. I am a sucker for these iron designs.
Paper is from K & Company - Wild Saffron. As I felt there was not much contrast I used a maroon cardstock to layer.
I did not cut the tulip or whatever flower for Rosette center but instead used a turkey from My community I think.
I think enough of rambling and let me put on the pictures
The inside of the card I used the large turkey I had cut with the rosette instead of throwing it away. Since I did not know the size I wanted for center I cut it about 1" and 1.5 " and I used the smaller one for the envelope
So there is my first cricut card after a long time and using the Ribbons & Rosettes and Ornamental Iron 2 cartridge. The card base is from Plantin . I hid the holes using hide contour.
