I am getting close to the end of the Scraps Card Series with only 1 card left. Very hard to believe but it got rid of a lot of my scraps. I guess I'm a scrap-horder! My new card series will begin next week with a Masculine card theme. I am planning on making 10 masculine adult cards and 10 male children's cards.
My card base measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" and was cut from White Cardstock. The blue mat was from my scraps and was cut at 5 1/4" x 4". The blue & white argyle mat was also from my scrap stash and measures 5" x 3 3/4". I also cut a strip of brown measuring 5" x 1".
For this card I used the following Cricut Cartridges: Paper Doll Dress Up, Everyday Paper Dolls and Create a Critter. I used scraps for all of my cuts.
The fence was cut from white cardstock from Paper Doll Dress Up at 1 1/2". This is found on p. 78 of the manual. The raindrops were cut at 2 1/2" from the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge. The cut is found on p. 42.
The umbrella, duck, rain cloud, pond and boots were all cut from the Create a Critter cartridge. Most of these cuts are found on p. 31 and the cloud and pond are found on page 52. The cloud was cut at 1 1/2" from grey, and the pond (water) was cut at 1" and 1/2" from blue cardstock.
The duck & boots were cut at 2 3/4" and the Umbrella was cut at 2".
I used my Cuttlebug: Divine Swirls embossing folder on the clouds and chalked around the edges of the cloud and all cuts. I also added Glossy Accents to the raindrops and the water.
Both sentiments were printed from my computer.
I entered this card in the following challenges:
