My Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog #122: Smore’ Anyone?

Happy Monday everyone! Today I have one of my favorite hats on, and that is being a design team member on the awesome Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog featuring this card for FCCB’s Monday Challenge #122.

I have to say, I was a bit apprehensive I could pull off this concept, but after swimming 1,200 freestyle meter workout and designing a card in my head, this is what I came up with (I am currently training for a mile ocean swim for a triathlon that I am competing in as a relay member and designing cards and other projects in between flip turns helps make the work out go by fast… since you can’t wear your Ipod in the water).

This card is going to be a birthday card for the hubs that we will be celebrating in a week.  We love camping and he built a custom teardrop camper for us to honeymoon in 7.5 years ago.  He did not use plans, he just took the profile dimensions that he found from a  1948 Popular Mechanics issue.  It took him about 3 months to build and most of this project was powered by ebay.

I used the teardrop as my inspiration and covered a cut from Going Places Cricut cartridge with aluminum foil (a bit more tricky that I thought it was going to be – aluminum foil is very temperamental).  I think he is going to love this card!

Head on over to FCCB and check out this week’s challenge and get inspired to creat a fun summer time project!

Thanks for sharing a piece of “gotta love smore’s” pie with me!

  4. Wow, you and your husband are so talented! My DH and I love camping too – we have a 5th wheel camper but we also like to do primitive tent camping as well for the challenge and adventure! Love your card! The buttons in the campfire are awesome – such a unique twist! Love the cuts from Potpourri (I have this cart and the Camp Out cart which also has the campfire and pine tree cuts :)). The camper in foil is so cute and I know your hubby will love it!
