Today's challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut is called "Set the Scene"! We were to make a scene of some sort, using at least one Cricut cut.
I was going to go with a beach scene, but then I remembered this fun sunrise background scene from the Country Life cartridge. Because of the rooster, I knew I'd have to make my card large. I used my Gypsy to size the sunrise scene to 8.25" wide--makes it about 4.5" tall, and I sponged the edges of the sun. The fence is cut twice from the Old West cartridge at 1.5" tall. I used Cricut markers to add detail. Then I trimmed off one of the posts and adhered both sections to my background with foam tape. The rooster is from the Just Because cartridge, and because it's sized for a card, I used my G to make the rooster itself about 2" tall. I popped him up with a double layer of foam tape. I sponged a piece of Blush Blossom with Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso Coral and adhered my scene. I used the CTMH Artiste cartridge to cut Hello at 1.25". I used a Cricut marker on this as well, and popped it up.
I really had a great time making this card, and I hope you will play along with us over at FCCB!
