Exploring Cricut-Monogram

Hello and Happy Monday!!! Hope you had a great weekend. Mine was a little busy but good. It's time for the new challenge at Exploring Cricut. We would love for you to make a card, layout or papercraft that contains 2 cricut cuts and a monogram. You can use any Cricut Cartridge('s) that you want for this challenge. Please new projects only. No back links. Our next to the youngest grandson loves firetrucks and since his birthday is coming up I decided to get his card made and use a firetruck. I cut this firetruck from the Beep Beep cartridge. It is in the #7 spot on the overlay. I cut it at 2.25 inches. I cut extra ladders so I could pop it up. The mat behind the firetruck can also be found on the Beep Beep cartridge. It is in the #42 spot on the overlay. I cut it twice at 3 inches. I ran the top on through my Big Kick using the Cuttlebug Polka Dots Embossing Folder and then popped it up on top of the other one. I then popped the firetruck up on the mat and added some glossy accents to the siren light, the headlight and the hose nozzle. The 'J' was cut from the Art Nouveau cartridge at 2 inches. It can be found on page 48. I did some doodling on it and then popped it up. The bg paper is from Ki Memories-Little Guy Paper Pad. I added the sentiment to the inside of my card. It is from the Happy Days stamp set from Mary-CardzTV Stamps. (Mary's new July releases are now shipping so hop over and check them out!!!!) I also added a ladder and a 'J' cut at 1.25 inches to the inside. Head over to Exploring Cricut and check out what my DT Sisters and Brother have created for inspiration. Awesomeness for sure!!! You have until 9pm, EST, Saturday, August 18 to link up your creation. So looking forward to coming by and checking it out!! Hope y'all like my card!!!! :)
