I wanted to post this since yesterday but my son is keeping me so busy and away from my computer. Cricut Cardz Challenge posted this week's challenge on Wednesday. It is to make a thank you card using the colors yellow, blue and white with a border cut from a cricut cartridge. You are allowed to use any cartridge you want. This is what I made:
scrappy moms stamp from A Charmed Life, "Sew Thoughtful!" It was my inspiration for making this card. I wanted an image that would go with this phrase so I found a sewing machine on Heritage using my Gypsy. It is such a great tool for finding what you want to cut without having to go through all the handbooks. I cut the sewing machine from Heritage at 1.75" and it is popped up. Card base is an A2 sized card (4.25" X 5.5'), the matte is DCWV from the Citrus Stack cut at 4" X 5.25". The oval is 3.5" from Plantin Schoolbook and I punched one inch circles and glued them behind to make the scalloped border. I learned this trick from Kristina Werner aka Star of May on you tube. I cut the scallop border on the tall ball function from Plantin Schoolbook as well at 1" which made it 6" in length so I just cut it down to match the matte. I faux stitched the oval and the border in a blue sakura souffle pen and the sewing machine with a white sakura pen to go with the sewing theme of the stamp. I also put a dot in each of the scallops bordering the oval. This is the second card that I made with no stickles! Next card, I will have to bling it up to even it out, LOL.
So that's my card. Thank you for looking! Have a great and crafty weekend!
