Happy Monday all! Today over at Fantabulous Cricut, we have a new challenge on deck! April showers using an umbrella. Sadly, I don’t see much rain since I live in the ever sunny Southern California, but when we do see rain we normally see rainbows, which always make me smile! That was my inspiration for this week’s challenge.
This card was super fun to make! It is a 6×6.5 inch card. The base card stock is from Stampin’ Up and the inked edges is from Close to My Heart Slate stamp ink. I had both my Circut and Silhouette sharing duties. I found the cloud cut over at the Silhouette store by Lori Whitlock. I cut it twice, inked the edges and stamped the sentiment using Scrappy Moms Kids Incorporated stamp set. I used Pop Dots to add height to the layers.
For the umbrellas I cut each from Cricut cartridge, Everyday Pop-Up Cards at 1.5 inches using Recollection Bright card stock. I then ran them through the Cuttlebug using Cuttlebug embossing boarders. I added different heights using Pop Dots. Using mini Glue Dots, I added Dew Drops, from Robin’s Nest and Skittles.
This is going to be a hard card to let go, since it truly makes me smile. Now be sure to head over to FCCB and see the other amazing inspirations that the rest of the design team has cookn’ and link up your April Showers and umbrella project using at least ONE Cricut cut.
Thanks for sharing a piece of “who does not smile when they see rainbows” pie with me.
