"Friend" ad challenge card
Over on the Cricut message board an Ad challenge was posted to make a card using the ad layout or the colors (blue, brown, and tan). With Father's Day coming up, everyone is making Father's Day cards with these colors, but I no longer have a dad to do that for. So I challenged myself to use these colors for a feminine card for my chemo card buddy. Hope I was successful. (Egads--tell me if I was NOT so I don't send it to her!). Anyhow, I obviously used the cuttlebug birds and swirls folder on the background. The green swirl was cut from Home Accents. I think it's the first time I've used that cut, and I really like how it looks on a card! Then the flowers were cut from that old stand-by, Walk In My Garden. Someone had given me these cute little metal bookplates, and I wasn't sure how to use them. But I knew instantly it was just right for this card. It framed my FRIEND stamp perfectly. I used gem brads in the flower centers to help feminize the card a bit. What do ya think-is this ok for a woman? Thanks for taking a peek!
