Good morning! It's Friday, which means it's time for another challenge over at Cricut 360! Make sure and hop over to see who won last week's prize, and who the top 3 picks for the week are. Our new challenge for the week is all about...you guessed it - Back to School! Can't believe it is that time already! I homeschool both of my girls, and I really don't feel ready for the summer to be over yet - but I don't know if I ever would feel that way! So...here is my card to celebrate that it is almost here!
I used Give a Hoot to cut out the apple, added some inking and stitching with my white gel pen, and used some Glossy Accents and Martha Stewart chunky glitter in the center of the apple. The background is just a rectangle of paper that I punched the edge on with an EK success punch and ran through my Cuttlebug. The tag was cut from Once Upon a Princess, and the sentiment is from Unity Stamps.
Added some more inking and stitching around the edges of the card, some bling with my Jolee's Heat Set tool, and some buttons and jute cord. Also pop-dotted the apple when attaching it to the card!
Hope you enjoyed looking - now head on over to the Cricut 360 blog to see what the rest of the Design Team whipped out, and to link up your own creation for a chance to win this weeks prize! Can't wait to see what you come up with!!!
I am also entering this in three challenges - this weeks Cricut Cardz Challenge - back to school with the 3 R's - ribbon, rhinestones, and the color red (the jute cord counts as ribbon, right?), and this weeks challenge over at Bitten By the Bug 2 - make a project using the Cricut, a stamp, and the color red. The last challenge is the Unity Stamp Company Challenge, Back to School. And one last one - the Learning Curve Challenge over at Paper Issues.
