#4-flowers, Sherri wants you to follow the sketch, use complimentary colors (blue/orange, red(pink)/green or purple/yellow), add a cricut flower (doesn't have to be main image-just add a flower) and add some ribbon. Then over on http://www.creativetimeforme.com/ Emma is having her 2nd Throwback Thursday challenge. She said to use the 'Stretch Your Imagination' cart. but if you don't own this cart, use these colors:
brown, blue and red, in a project of your choice. This is due by Sunday 6/13.
I did a card 5 1/2x8 1/2. On the front the bottom green is cut at 5 1/4x 8 1/4, the middle green is cut at 4 3/4x5 3/4 and the blue behind the shoe is cut at 4 1/2x4. On the inside I cut the top green at 4 3/4x6 1/4.
I chose to use the shoe from 'My Community' cartridge. I pulled up shoes on my Gypsy and was looking at all there was and when I saw this one, I thought it was just perfect for a MeeMee of nine! I don't have the SYI cart yet (it's in the mail) so I went with the colors. I set everything up on my Gypsy. The shoe was cut at 4.05x3.94 in red twice. I hid the laces and cut the roof at 3.85x3.94 in brown twice. I hid the roof and cut the shoelaces in blue at 3.85x3.94 twice. I used a white chalk marker to do the highlights on the shoe. This can be found on pg. 22 of the handbook. I put both shoes together with the layers, pop dotted the bottom layer on and then pop dotted the top one onto it. Used a blue metal dot for the doorknob. Then I used Create-a-Critter for my flowers. These can be found on pg. 69 using the accessory key. I cut the reg. layer 4 times in green at 1.31x1.47 and then the shift for the buds 2 times in blue and 2 times in red at 1.23x1.59. I layered 2 each together to make 2 sets of flowers. One I pop dotted on the front and the other I glued on the inside. I used the sun from CAC also. Pg. 52. I cut it twice from the basic cut (no layers), then cut it to fit the corner above the shoe and pop dotted it on. Then I computer generated my sentiment, printed it on brown paper, cut it out and pop dotted it on. The ribbon is from Daisy Bucket Designs, Polka Dot Chocolate. Did 3 rows on front and one on the inside. I put blue metal dots on the front and red on the inside.
I hope you like this card. I'm really happy with how it turned out. DH seemed to like it also.
Thanks for visiting and looking. Love any little thing you might want to say. Really makes my day!
I've got another card under this one for paperplaytime's challenge. Be happy for you to look at it also!
The sentiment says,
'I'm not a real old lady. And I don't live in a shoe. But I do have nine Grandbabies. And I love them! Yes I do!!!'
