I have the cartridge Give a Hoot and wasn't sure I liked it. I kept looking at the cuts on it and thinking there were some cute cuts but just wasn't having that "lovin it" feeling. Then I started looking at the cuts on a more individual basis rather than what is suppose to go together and guess what! I am now having that "LOVIN IT" feeling!!
BFF Karen and I decided to make a card and I wanted to use some of the word paper I got at the GASC. I looked through one of my CARDS magazines and decided on layout for a card. The cut file for FRIENDS is set to cut 4 at a time.
The following supplies were used:
Cricut Carts - Give a Hoot, Alphalicious, Storybook
Patterned Paper - K & Company, Little Yellow Bicycle
Cardstock - Coredinations, Stardream
Stickles - Cinnamon
Cat Eye Chalk Ink - Chestnut Roan
I cut off the f on the word friends from Give a Hoot and replaced it with a larger F from Alphalicious. The chipboard F was cut with the shadow feature as was the blue cardstock and top layer from patterned paper. I dotted Stickles along one side because.....well I just like bling! *okie thinks everyone should know by now that she has a serious bling addiction* And of course I pop dotted the F.
Karen did the inking on some of the cards. She kept telling me "I CAN DO STUFF" when I told her she wasn't allowed to sew on the cards.
I pounced the ink pad on the top layer of 'riends' so it would show up better. The paper I used looked a bit washed out before I did the pouncing.
The flower is cut at 1", 1.5" and 1.75" for a layered look. I used Coredinations Vintage for the bottom and top layer and Stardream for the middle layer. I crumpled the flowers and then sanded the Vintage for a more distressed look. A yellow brad finished off the flower quite nicely.
Maybe BFF Karen and I can make something again today! But maybe the pool is calling us....guess we will just have to see! *okie looks down at her arms and admires her kickin tan* Yep, the pool might win out!
Awesome card!!! Love that big huge 'F'. Really pops the card!!! :)ReplyDelete

Well, what an awesome little card this is. At first it has a simply gorgeous appearance, but on further examination it has some difficult and expertly done extras. Your colors and layers are awesome. Still learning so much from you!!!!!!ReplyDelete
