Hey Everyone! Ken here with Ken's Kreations. I am so excited to post my first project using the ALL NEW CRICUT ARTFULLY SENT CARTRIDGE.
I am in love with the CRICUT ARTFULLY SENT CARTRIDGE. This was by far the easiest POP-Up card i have ever made. The CRICUT EXPLORE does all the work for you. All you have to do is find the design you like, bring it into DESIGN SPACE and size it to your desired size. The CRICUT EXPLORE does everything else. It scores, cuts and even draws all for you!!! For this project I sued the Halloween Pop-Up card and Halloween Pocket Card. I added the elements from the Pocket Card below on the Pop-Up Card. I sized this card 10X7 in DESIGN SPACE.
I love the Haunted house that came with the Pop-Up card on the CRICUT ARTFULLY SENT CARTRIDGE. I started by cutting out all my pieces on the SCARREDY CAT PAPER PACK SET. I inked my edges with GYPSY COLOR INK. I took the haunted house and wanted to make the windows have a stained glass look. This was the perfect time to use different colors of wash tape. For this I used: PURPLE, YELLOW, GREEN and ORANGE. The ghosts are see thru to the paper below, however I still wanted to give them a translucence look to them, so I used LIQUID GLASS on the ghost which helped give them that translucent look that I was going for. On the fence posts and moon I used one of my favorite new mediums, which is VIVA DECOR PENS. These are simply amazing!! For the moon I used YELLOW, for the points and swirl on the fence I used SILVER, for the points on the fence I used both ORANGE and PURPLE and to finish off the set around the house I used ICE WHITE.
At this point I was able to move onto the tree and tombstones. I took BLACK INK and inked the edges around the tombstones and then using my WHITE CHALK PEN I wrote my RIP onto the tombstones. On the tree I wanted to give the look of the changing color of leaves so I took some BONDING MEMORIES GLUE and covered the tree with it and then sprinkled MARTH STEWART GLITTER all over the tree.
When looking at the Pop-Up cards on the CRICUT ARTFULLY SENT CARTRIDGE you will notice that the bottom half of the card is blank, I assume for you to write on. Well i wanted to fill mine with more stuff front the CRICUT ARTFULLY SENT CARTRIDGE so I used the images from the same page in the booklet. I took the spider from the other card, the spider web and the insert to the pocket card and layer them into DESIGN SPACE so I could get a visual of the size I wanted. Using my BLACK INK I inked the spider web. I took the same VIVA DECO PENS (PURPLE, YELLOW, GREEN and ORANGE) and filled in the letters on the pocket insert. I raised the pocket insert using 3D FOAM TAPE.
