Good morning to all my friends out there:) Today's post is for my Design Team post for My Cricut Craft Room. Today is Card Creating Tuesday and the theme is cards with a window. I figured where Temps around here are getting cooler at night, and I have a few pumpkins growing, and that made me think...Autumn.:) So that said...I used the cartridges Stretch Your Imagination and Martha Stewarts' Seasonal cake cartridge to make today's card.
I used the size 5 and 1/2 by 5 and 1/2 for this card on orange card stock form Colorbok, it gave me plenty of room to play. I cut the card at 5and 1/2 on page 42 in the book, and kept it on that setting to cut the windows' frame, and the leaves. I then cut out a piece of card stock from the Bo Bunny Garden Girl Collection for a mat and used my crafting knife to cut a square in the middle to have opening for window.
The next thing I did was I to cut out another card in white card stock and cut out the words "Autumn" so that the orange letters showed through and glued it to the top after I used one of my fancy corner punches, sorry, I do not know the brand, definitely going to research though:)
The next thing is I wanted a few pumpkins to add to the card, I knew MS Seasonal cake cartridge had some , so I pulled it out and cut a few of them at one and 3/4 inches, one and 1/4 inches and some at one Inch. On the larger pumpkin I used the "cake" button and the shift key to cut the out side design layer. Using Tim Holtz Spiced marmalade, I inked the edges of the pumpkins and a little Walnut too. I used white gel pen to highlight as well. On the inside a cut another window frame and with the zig pen I added it to the back side. on the facing side I added a strip of scrap paper I had to match the flowers and papers on the front of the card. A long time ago I purchased some flowers on clearance at Wal Mart, they were Orange and gold with gold rhinestones in the middle of them, so I dressed up the card on corners and in center of flowers. Lastly for "BLING" I added 3 small gold rhinestones to bottom left.
I believe the flowers are Petaloo, I have a big bag of assorted flowers and I believe they all came together.
So besides using my Cricut, ATG Gun and fabritac, I think that is all that I used today to create my card:) I hope you like it and will stop back again::)
Have a fun Crafting day!!!
