Stadium Flower Garden - A Card with Anna Griffin Flowers (Cricut canvas # by follower request) WINNER WINNER WINNER

The card I have for you today is a true beauty - IMHO

(NOTE::  The best part is, this card was a winning entry over at Anna Griffin's Facebook page on 1 April (and it was no April Fools!!!)).  See below for the wounder full box of goodies Anna sent to me.

 The card base is my design (see below); But all the beautiful embellishments are from various Anna Griffin products (see below).
I call it a stadium card because it looks like bleachers (but stadium sounds nicer). Just look at all those lovely layers!

Yes, It folds flat for mailing (well - almost flat). Fits in an Envelope for a 5x7 card.
I welded the base in Cricut Design Space with some basic shapes.
Note: I did the the straight stabilizer pieces in graduating stair-step size, but I found that is not necessary depending on the embellishments.  The white piece goes on back for sentiment and signing.   Yellow is patterned paper and pink is solid.     You could also do this with straight lines and not use a cutting machine at all. 

Here are the shapes I used:
you could use any shapes you like for a different look or find similar ones that are free with access.

When I finished the template in design space - I cut out about twenty for future card use.

NOTE:  If you would like the file/canvas number - please become a follower and post a comment/ request - I will PM you the canvas number. 
PLEASE NOTE:  You will need to own  Close to my Heart's -  Artiste and Close to my Heart's  Art Philosophy carts to use this file.  But you could use any shapes you like for a different look or find similar ones that are free with access.
