Today is my design team post for Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky Party hosted by Tara of Craftin Desert Divas! Every other Monday will mark the beginning of a new semi-weekly linky party and you could win fabulous prizes!!
This linky party theme is:
We invite you to link up all your Christmas in July projects.
The fabulous sponsors for this weeks linky are:CDD- One stamp set
My Scrap Chick - $10 Code
May Arts Ribbon - 3 Millimeter Diamond Chain
The more you link up, the better chance you have to win. Visit Craftin Desert Divas for all the rules and to play along. Here is what I created for this linky party:
*Craftin' Desert Divas - Happy Celebrations stamp set
*Cutcardstock.com - Satin Ribbon
*To create my card, I used 2 of the layers from the Artbooking Cricut cartridge.
*First, I used my Gypsy to hide the holes on the side of the photo mat layer.
*Then I copied it, created 2, and welded them together.
*I then cut a mat layer @ 3.89" x 4.65".
*The card front was cut @ 3.76" x 4.49".
Here's another look at the card:
*To create the repeating sentiment, I veeeeery carefully
cut the Merry Christmas sentiment apart. (Make sure you are using very sharp scissors if you choose to do this. I used my CTMH Micro-Tip Scissors found HERE.)
*Cutting the stamp apart allowed me to stamp the Merry multiple times in red, and the Christmas once in green.
*Adding pop dots under the sentiment gave the card some nice dimension.
I used the Merry Christmas sentiment
from this FABULOUS stamp set!
Hope you will Craft It Up & Link It Up!!! TFL, and hope everyone has a chance to craft today :)
