It's challenge time again, over at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog!!! This week the challenge is "Cool Treats," you create a yummy, cool, summer treat project. Hop on over to FCCB to link up your project. This weeks sponsor, CRI-Kits, was nice enough to let us use their product for our DT project. I have to say that I had never used a pen or marker in my Cricut before, but now I'm hooked. I love that I was able to draw my watermelon and title, and cut them out exactly. The biggest reason that I don't use many stamps is that I hate having to cut the out, this gave me the best of both worlds. I still got to color it in, but didn't have take all that time cutting all the little bity pieces out. It's wonderful!!!
For my Berry Sweet card, I drew and cut out the watermelon and title using the Cricut and the CRI-Kit black pen. Then I colored them in using my BIC markers (like I said, I don't stamp much, so I don't have any Copics). Then I used my Cuttlebug and the Spots and Dots folder to emboss the background paper, used some chevron washi tape to add a border and some pink cardstock to finish the background. I added the watermelon to the background then added the title using foam tape. I really like how it turned out and I learned a new technique that I am sure to use a lot more in the future.
