Paper Playtime Challenge #45

The challenge this week over at Paper Playtime is to make a tall card with an optional Cricut Cut if you have a cricut. Here is what I came up with for you.20110430_23 I started with a piece of white card stock at to 8” x 9” and scored it at 4” so I ended up with a card base 4” X 9”. Using my Gypsy, Cricut Imagine and the Better Together cartridges I laid out all the elements for my card. I used the George and Basic Shapes cartridge to create the colored rectangles. I sized both rectangles to 8” and flooded one with the solid red from the Better Together cartridge and the other with this flower print also from the Better Together Imagine cartridge.  I cut the image of the lady with the presents at 6” using the layers feature.  I inked the edges of all the cuts with some brown chalk ink and adhered the two mats together and added a blue ribbon to the lower part of the card. Using the same brown chalk ink I stamped my Happy Birthday sentiment and adhered the mats to my card base with my ATG gun.  I used pop dots to adhere the individual presents to the main image cut and the pop dotted the entire image to the patterned paper. To give the card a little more bling I used Yellow stickles on the flowers on the middle package, Glam Pink on the ribbon on the small top package. In addition to these two stickle colors I also used Tutti Fruiti and True Blue on the dots of the larges package. One final touch was to add Tutti Fruiti stickles the pink flowers on the background paper along with Star Dust stickles to the blue and white flowers. This added some glitter and glitz to the card. Thanks for visiting and I hope you join in the challenge at Paper Playtime.
