Hey Everyone! Here’s my latest creation. It was inspired by the Mojo Monday Card Sketch Challenge Blog.
I always start my designs by drawing out a rough sketch, or creating something in the Cricut Design Studio.Even if my card doesn’t look exactly the same as the sketch, it gives me a good idea of the path I want to take. Below is an example of my initial card making design , and the materials I used. So let’s get started!
Watch the YouTube card making video tutorial here.
Brown Polka Dot Cardstock (3.75”x5.25”)
Patterned Cardstock Banner (3.4”x2.6”)
Pink Cardstock (8.5”x5.5”)
White Cardstock (5”x3.75”)
Thin Ribbon (8”)
Border Paper Punch
Double Sided Sticky Tape
Cricut Images Used:
Easter (Word Collage cartridge)
Banner (Bits and Pieces cartridge)
Standard Square Shape
When making a card I prep all of the paper before pulling it all together into the final product. I cut the pink then the brown polka dot cardstock to the specs you see above. Once those items were cut, I used my only border punch to make a pattern across the bottom polka dotted background.
Next I made the banner using my Cricut machine. I let the machine write out the wording using my Jade marker, and cut the shape using the back layer of the “Banner” image from the Bits and Pieces cartridge. Once the banner was completed, I was ready to begin putting everything together.
I folded the pink paper, which would be the back of my card, then the brown on top. Once that was in position, I placed the banner towards the left. I then used the yellow ribbon to line the top of the card. Last but not least, I found some little chick stickers which I used to match that yellow ribbon, so I used them as my final embellishment.
