Just a Note

So what do you think of that card?? A little wild huh? I am really not sure if I like it or not, but I know my daughter will love it! So I am going to just sneak it into her backpack on Monday with a little note inside.

I am submitting the card to 3 challenges this week:
Just Buggin Challenge: stamp on your project.
Creative Belli Challenge: Use glitter or rhinestones
Die Cuts R Us: Use the colors in the DCRU logo shown to the right

For this card, I started with a white base, and I stamped a music background in various colors - aqua, pink, and green. If you click on the picture, you should be able to see that background a little better.

I cut that fancy frame from the Cricut Storybook cartridge. I also cut some smaller images of the blacked out frame for the center of the card. I stamped that music background again on the white frame shape, and I heat embossed with some glittery embossing powder.

For the sentiment, I used the new program "Make the Cut". That is a program to use to cut shapes on the Cricut machine without using any Cricut cartridges. It is so easy to use and you can cut any true type font, or svg file. I think you can also import other types of files as well, but I haven't played with that feature enough.

This is a closeup picture to show the sentiment and the backgrounds in more detail. For Christmas, my Mom gave me a huge container of Prima Flowers, and I used a bunch of those layered in the top right corner.

Finally I added some gems for sparkle!

Thanks for Looking!

I think it's beautiful. Know what else it would be nice for? --- for the cover of a box of notecards or even the cover for a post-it-note holder. ;-)
