FCCB Challenge # 169--Set the Scene


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!

Thanks for stopping by!
