Hi guys, Kristal at Gettin Cricky is having a Simply Sunday Challenge and if you'd like to play along, here is the link
I found Kristal's blog about a month and half ago and have completely fallen in love with it. She is an amazing lady, full of inspiration and Godly wisdom to share. Check out her blog and I hope that you receive the same kind of encouragement that it always gives me.
Here is the card that I'm linking up to her blog, I hope you like it.
This is my idea of a soldier (Prince Charming). I've been adopting soldiers for over 2 years now and have truly loved doing it. It feels good to be able to do something to brighten a soldiers day, even if it's just a little bit, especially after all they do for me. This card is going to one particular and very special soldier to me. He is my cousin and I love him very much. I hope he likes the card I made.
Here is the recipe and the cartridges that I used.
Every Day Paper Doll Cartridge - Book cut at 3.93 X 5.07
Cricut Classic Font Cartridge - Words cut at .50 inches
Computer generated sentiment.
JoAnn - Bazzill - Huckleberry Pie Card Stock
Pigma Micron 01 pen for faux stitching
Wal-Mart - @ the office - Primary Pack (Red Card Stock)
Stamp-in Up - 3/4 inch circle punch
Papertrey Ink - White Card Stock
I cut the book 3 times. I scored the top part so that it would open the way that I wanted. Then adhered the two pieces together with my atg gun. Then I took the third one and cut the spine of the book out so that I could make it a different color.
I cut the sentiment to fit the inside of the card and then used a 3/4 inch hole punch to round the edge to look similar to the shape of the book and used the corner chomper to round the edges of the inside sentiment.
Thanks for visiting me today and happy crafting.
