Find my Fantabulous Cricut Challenge post YOU ARE HERE!
Happy Monday All:
Hope you had a terrific weekend. Although it was cooler, it was still hot and muggy here.
I am so excited. This is my first post as a member of the FCCB Design Team! I am so honored to be counted among the talented designers on our team. Stop by FCCB and join in on this week's challenge and take a peek at my Design Sister's blogs as well.
This week we are celebrating July 4th!!! Challenge #118 is Kaboom! Fireworks Celebration. This card will be the only fireworks going off for me, as we are so close to being in drought status again in our area.
|A peek inside.|
Here is the recipe for my Kaboom project:
Size: A2 (4.25" x 5.50")
- Red mat - cut @ 4" x 5.25"
- Firework mat - cut @ 3.75" x 5"
- Small red mat - cut @ 1.50" x 5"
- Small white mat - cut @ 1.25" x 5"
Fireworks: WILD CARD, pg 59, Star cut @ 4" (Real dial size) using Icon feature, cut 3 times
Cardstock: The Paper Company
Patterned Paper: Provo Craft (Pathways Creative paper - Americana pack)
Ink: Tsuneiko (Rich Cocoa - Momento)
Accents: Recollections (Mini Star Brads)
Stickers: Me & My Big Ideas (Firecrackers and Star Border - Patriotic Kids Borders) and (Yellow Star - Patriotic Sayings)
Adhesives: Scotch (ATG) and Xyron (Xyron 150)
I cut the Fireworks cut on WILD CARD three times, once in each color. I then cut each of the fireworks out on the red and blue cuts. Using the top of the middle firework I cut the top off of the red and blue and angle cut to make the pieces to create a spiral look. I think they turned out really cute.
Drop by FCCB and enter your Kaboom! creation.
