The Cricut® Flower Market Collection comes in two versions. Both contain the same images and include the same stamp sets and cardstock, but one includes a cartridge, keypad overlay and handbook while the other includes a card with a scratch off area covering a code you will input on the Cricut® website to add the cartridge to your account. When you add the cartridge to your account, it can be accessed in Cricut® Craft Room for use with the Expression 2 and older Cricut® machines and Cricut® Design Space for use with all versions of the Explore.
You should have arrived here from ***The Inky Scrapper by Haley Dyer***. If you get lost along the way, Melinda Everitt keeps a list of participants on her blog at If You Bling It.
I created a wreath for this hop using only cuts from the Cricut® Flower Market cartridge.
I used Sea Glass Re-inker to "tone down" the brightness of the embroidery hoop. I wish I had the Fern Re-inker or one of the lighter Basic colors as I think it would appear better in photographs, but in person the hoop is barely noticeable. I used my fingers to shape the Baby's Breath Branches, Holly Berry Twigs and Bow from the Holly Wreath, but it is hard to capture in a photo. The branches and twigs are only adhered at the bottom and the top while the edges were left loose.
The bow has two layers of 3-D Foam Tape in the middle and one layer on the left and right sides. The rest of the bow is left loose. I threaded the fern ribbon through the screw mechanism that holds the hoops together and tied a simple knot to create a loop. I wanted the hanger to blend into the wreath so the Ruby bow could take center stage.
