I have a fun, albeit late little project for you today that was actually supposed to be for last week's FCCB challenge, April Showers. I got it done a few days after it was due and just decided to post it on the Wednesday Winner's post instead. I am going to go ahead and enter it into a few challenges since I've posted it now. :) I hope you enjoy it and I apologize for the crummy photos. Without the flash it looked too dull and with the flash it looks too glossy, but I will post all the pics anyways, but keep in mind, it's much cuter in person. ;) I actually made this for a friend of mine who is going through a very rough time. I'll post the deets below for those that are interested. ;)
Cricut Cartridges: April Showers, A Child's Year, and 3 Birds on Parade
Sentiment stamp is from CTMH and punched out with a Creative Memories double-punch.
Glossy Accents and Stickles
DEETS: I was super excited to use A Child's Year for the first time, for the background shape of this card. There's some great shapes on that cartridge! I used 3 Birds on Parade for the bird/umbrella/raindrops and April Showers for the clouds that I welded. I designed it all in Cricut Craft Room.
All cardstock used was from my stash and most were from scraps! For the background I really wanted it to look like rain coming down and found an awesome stamp in my collection that was perfect for this! Notice all the white swirls in the background? I don't know the stamp set off-hand, but if anyone wants to know what it is just leave a comment and I'll look it up for you. ;) I also used a CTMH stamp set that I bought online and I am in love with this set!!! I'm in bed at the moment and can't remember the name of it either, but again, am happy to look it up. ;)
I did a lot of little doodles and extras on this card with gelly rollers, ink, Glossy Accents, and Stickles. I decided the bird looked too plain so I gave him a funky little 'do and some eyelashes too. ;) I popped things up with foam dots to add some depth and there ya have it!
Thanks so much for stopping in today and since you're here, why don't ya leave a comment? I'd love to hear from you! :)
