Ericas Craft Room Theme Thursday
It seems like everyone on the design team signed up for today's post. The theme is Peachy Keen where we could have used our stamps on our projects or we could choose to use the Simply Charmed Cricut cartridge. Well guess what???? I used BOTH!!!
I needed to make a birthday card for my great nephew Jaylon. His birthday is tomorrow March 2nd. As I paged through the cartridge booklet, the little fish with the fishing pole caught me eye. I remembered that I had a Pink By Design stamp that would be perfect with that cut. To create the card, I cut my base at 5" x 5". I had some cute little fishy paper from the Target dollar spot that I bought quite some time ago. I used it to decide the colors for my card. I began by cutting the background shape from Art Philosophy. I cut it at 4.00" and then cut the white inside shape slightly smaller.
Next, I cut the pole and fish at 3 inches. I used a Peachy Keen set to put the face on the fishy. I also used some orange and white twine to make the fishing line on the pole. Last, I used my PBD set called Simply Everything that I bought from Erica's online store. The sentiment says "Fishing You A Happy Birthday". I also used a Stampin Up Cuttlebug folder to emboss the fish's body.
Hope you liked my card today. Please check Erica's blog to see all the projects by my design team sisters. There should be tons of great things to see today!! http://mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com/
