Happy 2015 to all! My family and I celebrated the New Year with a vacation to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, where we had a fabulous time! The people were extremely friendly and the weather was gloriously sunny and warm! As I write this post tonight, it’s a mere -3 degrees outside. Boo! I keep looking at the beach picture I put on my phone’s lock screen and wishing we were still there!
Oh well…on to my first card of 2015. I made a bridal shower card for my niece, whose shower took place when I was on vacation. I decided to use the CTMH Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge which I purchased from my crafty sister, Laurie. I have not had much time to play around with this cartridge yet, so it took a few minutes to figure out how to put it together. I also am still learning Design Space! I used paper from a pack by Amy Tangerine for American Crafts called Best Of, which I purchased at Michael’s last fall. I added some pearls to the umbrella and brushed clear Wink of Stella onto the word “bridal”. I thought the umbrella and word got lost in the patterned paper, so I cut them each 3 times to layer them and add dimension. It’s still pretty hard to see the umbrella in this picture. Forgive me for using such a poor image. I won’t use my iPhone next time! Of course, I used foam tape, too, to pop them up! I love foam tape!
Thanks for looking and have a crafty week!
