BFF Card


I made this card for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog's Challenge Me Monday #71.  Wow, that's a mouth full, LOL.  This weeks challenge was to make a card for a friend.  Now, I have a friend in mind for this card, but if I say it on here it'll give it away before she can get it!!
ALL cardstock is from The Paper Company's value packs.
I started with a 5 1/2"x 8 1/2" piece of blue cardstock and folded it in half for the base of my card.  Then, for my first layer, I cut a piece of light green card stock at 5 1/4"x 4".  I layered a piece of lavender colored cardstock that was cut at 5 1/4"x 2 1/2" on the top half of the green cardstock using my ATG gun.  I covered up the "seem" of where the papers meet with a piece of light pink grosgrain ribbon and secured it on the back using regular Scotch tape.  I attached the whole thing to the base of the card using my ATG gun.
I used the "Create a Critter" cartridge with my Cricut Expression to cut the Lamb and the Moon.  I cut the lamb at 3 1/2" and the moon at 2".  I secured the lamb to my card using 3D-Dots to make her pop off of the page making her the main focal point.  I attached the moon using my ATG gun.
Then to finish off my card I used a My Pink Stamper stamp from her "Even More Punny-licious" set with a Stampin Up! Classic, Creamy Caramel, ink pad for my sentiment. 


I wanted to use some light pastel colors for this card because they seemed more warm and inviting.  The exact feeling that I want to give my friend.  I hope you all enjoyed it!!


Happy Crafting!!!!
