Welcome back for another
On WYEGW, we can use anything on the cricut cartridge EXCEPT the main image. For my project today, I chose the A Child's Year Cartridge. For the longest time I hesitated on buying this cartridge, since my kids all all grown up and I thought I had no need for this cart. I kept see projects made on other blogs and the Cricut Messageboards using this cartridge. So I finally decided to buy it!!
I picked the image on page 39, it is using the ICON feature using the shift key. Here is the sneak peak!!
I cut the image at 3.5" in cream color cardstock. I knew I wanted to cover it with stickles. When I first tried painting on the stickles, I was not getting full coverage. You could see alot of the cream color, so I decided to wipe off the stickles and add some color with chalk.
Here is what the image looked like with just the chalk.
Pretty good, but I needed to add the sparkle, so I added Candy Cane and Green Stickles. All the paper is from Close to My Heart "Elegant Bouquet" paper pack. I have alot of the older CTMH paper packs, so now I am trying to use them. I have so much paper, I kind of vowed not to buy anymore until I used up at least some of what I have. We will see how long that will last...LOL!!
Here is a picture of the finished card.
I inked the edges of all the paper with Distress Ink in Tea Dye. I used the Swiss Dots and Divine Swirls Cuttlebug folders for the two mats. I added some My Craft Spot Crinkle Ribbon in Scarlett Red. I finished the card off with a tag from the coordiating sticker stack from CTMH and the sentiment is from Paper Trey Inks "Birthday Basics" Set.
