I've heard that you can cut out the bracket shape to fit the frame from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, but I simply traced the frame (inside and out) onto the back side of the patterned paper. Sometimes I think it's easier to just hand cut rather than figure out all the calculations to cut on the Cricut.
Here's the page from the Artiste handbook that shows the 4 different 3D flowers you can cut. I love how it's color-coded so you can see that the green spiral flower on the right (the one I used) will turn into the green finished flower in the upper left corner.
This is what the bracket frame looks like when you first get it. A bright white blank canvas just waiting for you to get creative!
Along with their wedding bracket frame, we gave Lisa and Benny a gift card, so I made an elegant, yet quick gift card holder for them.
Artiste handbook (be patient, this is a large PDF to open). Don't you love how the bracket shape matches the bracket frame?! The holder is very simple to fold up, then I used a glue pen to attach "Bride & Groom," which is on page 61. Then I tied it up with some black tulle ribbon to match the frame, which I had cut down to 1" wide. Easy peasy!
Here are the handbook pages for the gift card holder. Again, color-coded, so you know what the finished cut will look like once it's assembled.
