I am so excited to be joining you for my first Challenge Me Monday as part of the Design Team at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. I have been a follower of FCCB for awhile now and love their challenges, tips and tutorials. This week the challenge is "Let's Be Friends." I knew right away I wanted to use this cut from A Child's Year as it is one of my go to carts.
I also wanted to use this stamp
Friends are the Family we choose ourselves.
Please join in with the challenge this week and post your project at FCCB. I would love to see your creations.
Once it is scored fold it accordian style with the 1 1/4 inch fold to front.
The paper stack I used was the Whimsy Stack from DCWV.
I used Elegant Edges to cut the Scalloped circle and shadow for the frame at 4 inches.
The girls from A Child's Year were cut at 2 1/2 inches.
The border was also from Elegant edges cut at a 5 1/2 inches width to fit the card using my Gypsy which made it 1.07 inches tall. I also cut the shadows for the border.
I cut pieces to cover each fold front and back so you need 2 each of 2 1/4 x 5 1/4, 1 1/2 x 5 1/4, 1 x 5 1/4
The ACY girls were pop dotted to make them stand out. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the buterflies, added ribbon, stamp, and a little Diamond Stickles to accent some of the flowers.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my project and are inspired to join in the challenge this week. Happy craftin!
