This week, Robyn at My Pink Stamper is having her design team call. The challenge is to make a card, scrapbook page, or other Cricut project with your favorite cartridge using the following colors......
(Other optional color of your choice)
From the start I knew exactly what Cricut cartridge I wanted to use. It would have to be 'Life is a Beach.' That cartridge just makes me happy because there is nothing better than a vacation at the beach. Okay well chocolate is a close second! As I was flipping through the images I stopped on the mermaid. YES! It hit me! I could make a card based upon one of my favorite Disney movies, 'The Little Mermaid.'
The recipe for my card… I started with a pre-cut embossed card by DCWV. I love using these cards because they are already prepared for you and all you have to do is add your design. All the more time for the real crafting the better! :) I cut the mermaid at 4" and then used the layers key to cut each part of the mermaid and add some color. I cut the layers each the same size using the specified colors of cardstock. Now came the time to choose my optional color. I wanted it to blend well with the colors Robyn picked but also tie in to the theme of my card. I chose navy to represent the color of the ocean. I cut this piece of cardstock at 5x5" and used one of my favorite go-to scrap tools my corner punch to round the edges. I adhered my mermaid and a separate piece of small turquoise cardstock which I eyeballed to size, and used my friend stamp to make this card for someone extra special. For the center of the flower I used a small yellow brad. Still something was missing from my card. I decided since this was a card I’m making for my friend why not add a little buddy for my mermaid. I cut the fish from the same Crircut cartridge at 3” and tada my card was complete. I then added the finishing touch with my Gelly Roll clear star pen which added some pizzazz to my card.
Hope you like Robyn! I would love to be a part of your design team. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
