Merci A Thank You Card

merci1

This card was created to send to a special person who sent me a Rak.

I used French Manor Cricut cartridge for the Eiffel Tower at 4″ I cut out 3 Eiffle Towers black, silver and pink, and the black one  I clicked Hide Contour to use as a shadow, I placed that down flat on card base. I cut out 2 of the word Merci  also from the cartridge under phrases and is cut out at 1.75″  I cut this out in pink and black. Applied the pink Merci flat on top of black Eiffel Tower. I then added pop up squares to the pink Eiffel Tower and added Pop up squares to the outsides of the black merci and put it over the pink Eiffel Tower. I offset the top layers because they were all cut at same size and not really shadows.

Below is a close up, you can see the embossing from the Cuttlebug and the rhinestones.

Below is the inside of the card. I put the silver Eiffel Tower and placed the inside of the pink Eiffel Tower inside the silver one for more color. And then placed pink paper on the right side so I can write a message.

Yes I Am A CricutDIVA!

I am so excited to be here. I always knew I was a Diva!!! Thank you to Karin for having me here. I hope you will be inspired by my Cricut projects as well as my fellow Design Team Sisters. My goal is to inspire you to use your Cricut  machines and not just for paper crafting. The starting point for this mixed media plaque begins with the Word Collage cartridge.

When I applied for the DT I immediately thought of this project I had made in September. I used a lot of cartridges to make my project, the main starting point was with Word Collage. I love mixed media.

After using some paint fabric and vinyl I had a great base to start with. Of course I had to add some stamping as well.

Now the fun begins, lol. I pulled out my Cricut Expression, some acrylic and various cardstock. I used Celebrate With A Flourish for the wine bottle and glasses and French Manor for the corner glasses. My emblem on the glasses is from Mini Monograms.

In order to add some dimension I used some rubber grapes from my stash and a cork. Here’s the completed project:
