Welcome back and today I am sharing a large 6″ x 12 card I have just completed for a work mate of my husband who has been unwell. The brief included having a Maori theme and had to be big enough for all the staff to sign. My husband was very impressed with what I made!

I downloaded a koru image from Shutterstock and then converted the jpeg to an svg and then used my Cricut to cut it out. Because this was a masculine card I kept to a blue, green and black colour combination and the blue and green flowers are not too feminine. To finish with the New Zealand theme I added some polished paua.

I found this a challenge as it was totally outside my comfort zone but I am so pleased I managed to make this card. I hope my husband’s workmates like this card.
