·       Patterned papers – My Mind’s Eye – 


Other supplies: Sentiment sticker, Covered Button, Brown ink 

Tools:
·       Cricut Expression and ‘Walk In My Garden’ cartridge, Martha Stewart/EK Success scoring board & paper trimmer, ‘Arch Scallop’ border punch, scissors, ruler, craft knife

Steps:
·       Cut card base using Cricut Expression and Walk In My Garden cartridge, set at 5”.  Score at center (using register marks) and fold in half.  Press fold.
·       Cut patterned paper base using Cricut Expression and Walk In My Garden cartridge, set at 5”.  Adhere to card base.
