Cute Card Thursday



The challenge today at Cute Card Thursday ( http://cutecardthursday.blogspot.com/ ) was to use bright, tropical colors. And I love pink and green, so this is what I came up with. The Cardstock background for the card is from DCWV Nana's Kids Stack, I used a free scut file and my Cricut Expression with Sure Cuts Alot for a ribbon thread card ( sorry, I am not sure where I got it, so I am not free to share).. I got the strawberry svg file from http://etceteraetcetera.wordpress.com/sure-cuts-a-lot-scal/. I cut the strawberry and topper out 4 times and glued together for a dimensional look. I then cut the berry out in black cardstock on blackout mode, and glued it on to the back. I filled the holes for the seeds with glittery black fabric paint, and chalked around the edges with various chalk inks (first the pinks and greens, then black on the edge). I tied a skinny white satin ribbon from Offray around the stem and attached a little flower from a little pack I got from Target's dollar spot, then added a tiny pink gemstone from K&Co. I threaded a shimmery sheer spring green ribbon I got from Hobby Lobby through the edge of the card, attaching it on the inside with a couple of Glue Dots. I stamped a sentiment from Inkadinkado with black Memento ink on the front. It still looked a little plain to me, so I traced over the words with a hot pink glitter pen by Martha Stewart, then waited till it was dry and stamped again with black ink. Thanks for looking!
