Today I have two cards to share and the first card is another Summer-Themed card for this week's big SUMMER PARTY over at 'The Outlawz Challenge Group'. Today is the Color Challenge and the Girlz have put together some fun inspiration which you can find HERE! Our challenge is to use Red & White Checks in our projects and also as a twist to use 'Punches'. This is my card which will be submitted to their challenge.
DCWV Summer Stacks. I then used a variety of Punches and Die Cuts to create my border, and a background for my sentiment, which is actually some clip art from another old CK Scrapbook program that I have had installed on my computer for a long time. I had almost forgotten about it, until today, but it worked perfect for this card. My ribbon is from this month's club at 'Really Reasonable Ribbon' and I loved that it had the perfect red/white check that I needed for my card.
This card is being submitted to each of the challenges and everyone is welcome to join the FUN!!
- The Outlawz Group- Summer Party - Color Combo with a Twist
- A Spoon Full of Sugar - Challenge #155 - Here Comes Summer
- Papertake Weekly Challenge - Anything Goes
This is the card I came up with today and it's very basic and simple! Even, so I'm very happy that I tried and I plan to play along every week! Everyone is welcome, so feel free to come on over and join the fun.
In addition to the flowers shapes I cut with my Cricut, I also used a my Grand Calibur to create my large circular card, which I could also have done with my Expression. I find it quicker to use my Grand Calibur, but there are time when I'll cut several papers of shaped cards on the Cricut!!
And that is it for now, but since I have my Expression up and running I think I'm going to see what else I might want to cut today!
