Cricut Cardz Challenge #65


20110313_2The challenge this week over at the Cricut Cardz Challenge Blog is to make a a tall card (4 X 9”). For my card I stared with a piece of Kraft card stock cut to 8” X 9” and scored and folded it at 4”. I then used my Imagine and the 1:2 proportional rectangle in the stock images on the Imagine. I sized the rectangle to 4.5” and flooded with the darkest green on the Nursery Tales cartridge. I then printed and cut the striped Icon on page 31 of the handbook at 2”. I also used the new Mother’s Day Bouquet Seasonal Mini cartridge to cut my flowers. I cut three layers at 2.5”, 2.3” and 1.3” and chose several different flowers. I flooded the first layer of one flower with the darkest blue on the Nursery Tales cartridge and the other two with a dark orange from the Nursery Tales cartridge. The second layer was flooded with either an orange or blue pattern from the Nursery Tales Imagine cartridge. For the final layer I flooded all three flowers with the lightest green from the cartridge color pallet. I sprayed this layer with some Honey Dew Mist Glimmer Mist. I attached the flower layers together gluing only in the very center of the flowers. This allows the flower petals to curl slightly and add some dimension to my card. I added a small button to the center of each flower and attached the flowers with some foam tape. To finish off the card, I added some faux stitching to the top and bottom of the card and some doodle dots to some of the flower petals. Thanks for visiting.
