The weather is starting to feel a bit nicer, you can hear the birds chirping, and if you look very closely you can see the flowers blooming. That can only mean ONE thing - SPRING is finally on its way! And to give it a nice and warm welcome, Fantabulous Cricut is having a SPRING challenge.
This week's Challenge Me Monday #53 is all about Looks Like SPRING. Simply create a card or project using any SPRING time theme.
I decided to welcome SPRING into my house with this adorable trio of Spring Rosette Lollipops.
Each lollipop measures about 4 3/8" in diameter. The scalloped circles were cut with the Mini Monograms Cartridge at 4 3/8". I first cut out the scallops in "chipboard" - aka Cereal Boxes - to give the lollipops more stability and to be able to sandwich them between the plastic skewer.
I then layered a 3 5/8" circle cut out of coordinating cardstock. I used my PaperRosette Cut File to create the paper rosettes. On top, I layered a 2" scalloped and a 1 3/4" circle, both cut from the Mini Monogram Cartridge.
I used the adorable little duckie from the Simply Charmed Cartridge. I cut it out twice at 1 1/2" to give it some dimension. Again, I used the Lara Crafts Rub-On Doll Faces to bring the duckie to life.
This BeautiFly is from the Create A Critter Cartridge. It was also cut out at 1 1/2", but its layers were cut 1/8" smaller.
The bunny comes from the Doodlecharms Cartridge and was cut at 1 1/2" too. I used the oval from Plantin SchoolBook to make the inside of the ears. I used Lara's Crafts Rub-On Doll Faces and chalked in some cheeks.
The Lollipops were inserted into a glass bottle filled with "robin eggs" - aka Peanut Butter M&M's. To finish the SPRING Rosette Lollipop Trio I added a 7/8" wide white satin ribbon. OMG! I just remembered I was going to add a small banner strip with a spring message to each lollipop. Oops!
Here they are sitting pretty in my living, welcoming SPRING!
