This announcement is a little overdue, but I would like to let everyone know that I have been selected as a Senior Design Team member over at Fantabulous Cricut, (FCCB) the brand new Cricut challenge blog!!!
I, along with three other Design Team members, resigned from Just Buggin a couple of months ago, and I am so excited to be taking part in this awesome, FANTABULOUS new challenge blog! Fantabulous Cricut will have some super-fun, informative and interesting tutorials, tips and challenges each week, so make sure you check back daily for a little crafy inspiration. And be sure to head over today to take a look at the other DT members' creations and take part in the very first challenge!!! :)
Challenge #1 at FCCB has two criteria (in addition to using at least 1 Cricut cut on your project):
1) use a balloon shape
2) use the word "birthday"
(neither of these have to be the Cricut cut)
My project (photo above) is a birthday card for a little boy turning 2. For the balloon shape, I used three small balloons tied together and embellished with a glittery button and turquoise ribbon. I printed the sentiment with my computer (including the word "birthday") and cut each word out separately. I used the number "2" in place of the word "to".
I used the following cartridges on this project:
Card base: George (circles welded together in Cricut Design Studio)
Scallop circle: Storybook
Number "2": Plantin Schoolbook
Black arrow: Street Sign
To get the glittery look on the number "2", I coated the surface of the number with liquid glue and sprinkled it with turquoise glitter. I used a scrap piece of paper to press the glitter down, then shook off the excess glitter and let it dry. Then I matted it with a black shadow for dimension.
Thanks for looking and have a creative day!!! :)
