Hello! I hope everyone has had a wonderful start to their week! Today I'd like to share my card I made for this week's Card Creating Tuesday at My Cricut Craft Room - it's my first time participating in the sketch challenge rather than the theme challenge! While I LOVE themed challenges, sketch challenges are always fun, too, and they definitely get my creativity flowing. Here's the sketch for this week's challenge:
Since it's a fairly simple sketch, I decided to make a fairly simple card to go with it. Even though the card is pretty basic, I actually really like it, although I can't quite put my finger on what makes it so appealing to me, LOL.
Believe it or not, I actually used three Cricut cartridges to make this card! The frame is cut at 5" from the Elegant Edges cartridge, the USA letters are cut at 1" each from the Pooh Font cartridge, and the stars are cut at 1" from the Happy Graduation cartridge. It's sort of hard to see in the picture, but I used my Inkessentials foam applicator to distress black ink over the stars to give them a more "vintagey" feel to match the paper. It was my first time using the tool and I'm happy to say I'm pleased with it's first trial! :)
