This week's challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut is all about DADS! Simply create a special project for the #1 DAD in your family and you will be entered to win a $10 Gift Certificate to the Whimsie Doodles Online Store.
Whimsie Doodles isn't only sponsoring FCCB's Challenge Me Monday #63, but they have also provided the DT with wonderful images to work with. And today I'm back with my 2nd DAD card using some of their Father's Day Tickets.
Part of this card was inspired by this month's Magazine Challenge - Make It Your Way, over at the Cricut Circle Blog. When I saw Aphra Bolyer's #1 DAD Wallet, it gave my initial idea a final touch. I love the way she combined a star with ticket-shaped die-cuts and how she embossed the "wallet" for more texture. I wish I could link/show you her project, but's limited to Cricut Circle Members - sorry.
I used the Postage Stamp(pg. 67) image from the Create A Critter Cartridge and welded two pieces together in Design Studio to make a card base.
The larger star is from the Doodlecharms Cartridge cut at 3".
The smaller star is from the Simply Charmed Cartridge cut at 1".
The Father's Day Tickets from Whimsie Doodles were slightly modified to fit what I had invisioned in PSE 8. They were sized to 3.5" x .893" strips and hand-cut.
The larger star from Doodlecharms was cut out twice and popped with dimensionals.
I've been loving all the color challenges at ColourQ. Arielle picks the best color combinations! And this week's combination is no exception. I just loved the neutral palette with a touch of red.
The inside has the same large star from Doodlecharms, in white for a small message.
Now, its YOUR TURN! Create a special project to show DAD how special he is. Don't forget to link up your #1 DAD project by Sunday, June 12th at 11:59pm EST for your chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to Whimsie Doodles.
This card will also be entered into the following challenges:
