FCCB Challenge #212 For the Graduate


Hope everyone is having a wonderful day. The challenge this week is to make a card for a graduate. This year I don't have a graduate.  The area school colors are red, black and white so I made a card using those colors. The Cricut cartridges I used are Wild Card for the cap and diploma and Elegant Edges for the layers of black and red.

The letters and numbers are Thickers. I made the red tassel using embroidery floss.  The sentiment is a Fiskars stamp set.  I tied a white ribbon around the diploma and used pop-dots for dimension for it and the cap. Four black half back pearls in each corner finished the card off with some bling.

Hope you like my card and will join us for the challenge this week at FCCB.

IT'S CHALLENGE # 211 THIS WEEK.  The theme at FCCB is May flowers.  For my project I made a card using the Kate's ABC's cartridge that I recently purchased and I love it. It has so many cute images.

I used glitter paper for some of the layers but it's hard to see in my picture. The papers I used for this card  are scraps from my craft room. Lately my scraps have been building up so I decided to organize my leftover pieces  from other projects and use them. The only new piece of paper is the pink cardstock for my base. 

I cut the image at 3.75 inches so it would be large enough to be the focal point. The sentiment banner is stamped with a MCT set, "Bloom Where You Are Planted". I used Tim Holtz "Vintage Photo" to stamp my sentiment and distress everything. The pink sheer ribbon is leftover from the baby banner I made awhile back, it was just enough to tie the bow.

My goal for the next few months is to use as much leftover paper as possible. Join our challenge this week and have fun making a project with flowers.

FCCB Challenge # 209 Use Patterned Paper

The challenge this week at FCCB is to make a project using patterened paper.  I decided to make a mini album using the book feature on the Elelgant Edges Cartridge.

I used the "Little Mister" DCWV paper stack.  It has some cute images for little boys. The back and front covers are cut from chipboad and covered with paper. The book is cut a 5". I used my Bind-it-All to put it together and added ribbons and a charm I made. The buttons are from my stash.
One the inside a made two pocket pages and several tags for journaling and some photo mats for pictures of my son when he was a baby.  

Hope you enjoy my mini. I always like to make them. 
Join in the challenge this week and have fun creating. 
Our sponsor this week is Mark's Finest Papers.
