Today is my first design team post MCCR and I designed a FISH themed card for the Project Sunshine and Smiles, cards for a cause..
All of the cards will be sent to a children's hospital to bring smiles onto those little faces..
and so with that said, here is the card I created:
I designed the card with CCR and then printed and cut the images using my Cricut Imagine.. I love creating little scenes on my projects and since we were to use FISH on our card, what better than a cute little under water scene :)
I used my George and Basic shapes cartridges to create the base of the card.. the base measures 4.75" x 6.75", which I then colored in blue, using my imagines Lori's Garden cartridge.. I then cut another rectangle measuring 4.5" x 6.5" and filled that in with the blue stripped image (before cutting of course) also from the Lori's Garden cartridge, this way I got all of the colors and prints to coordinate..
If I remember correctly, the little fish are cut 2" and are located on the Create-A-Critter cartridge.. the little word blurb is on the Imagine basics that comes with the Imagine. The font for the title FISH is from Plantin Schoolbook and I cut it really small at 0.75.. The prints and colors are all on the Imagine cartridge: Lori's Garden which is the imagine cartridge I used for this card.. I also added some drops of liquid pearls and then drops of glossy accents to represent bubbles in the water..
The shell and starfish are also from the Create-a-Critter cartridge..both were cut at 2" as well, if I remember correctly.. I really should try to remember to write the sizes down next time..sorry about that..
The greenery and seaweeds are also on the Create-a-Critter and I used the cloud cut and made a big green rock with it instead, filling it in with the green print before cutting..always gotta think outside of the box..LOL small added details with liquid pearls and glossy accents..
Here you can see all of the dimension on this card..
I foam taped everything, which is one of my favorite techniques..
I first glued down the shadow cut (brown) flat onto the card and then foam taped the green rock to that, tucking under some of the seaweed.. I have a tendency to never glue the entire die cut down, just a piece of it :)
oh and for the inside of the card, which I designed on CCR as well.. I used the Print only option on the Cricut imagine, so it printed the image onto white cardstock without cutting it.. love that feature by the way..
So, the sentiment is : "Fish, You were feeling better!"..
