Simple Peony Card-Picturesque and Smiley Face

This is a way simple and easy card to make. I created it with my Gypsy, Cricut Picturesque cart, George and Basic Shapes cart and digital Smiley Face cart. The card is cut at 4.75 inches. It is from the Smiley Face cart. I cut the card from a beautiful pearlescent paper from a K & Co. stack. It is double sided. I thought it may be hard to write a message on, so I cut the card a second time on a less "slick" paper. I cut it on my Gypsy and when I did this time I used the "hide contour feature" to hide the circle. Then I used the George cart to cut a bigger circle. The reason for this is so that this paper can't be seen from the front. I only used the bottom half of the card inside because I really liked the double sided paper that was already there for the top.
The peony is from Picturesque and is cut using the framework feature. This is one of the very reasons I wanted this cart. It is amazing! The truth is, I always thought this cut was a rose, until I read the booklet, then I found out it is truly a Anywho, it is cut at 2.75 inches. Then I used the basic cut for the background and glued the framework and basic cut together. I put it on pop dots and put it in the center of the card. I added some ribbon around the bottom and is done! TFL!
