Hey Everyone! Ken here with Ken's Kreations. Well I am still having a great time in Maui, however I wanted to make sure to give everyone an opportunity to get entered into my CRICUT EXPRESSION 2 GIVEAWAY CONTEST. This month I am having such a blast Kreating stuff with the CTMH CRICUT ARTFULLY SENT, so much that all of my projects fro October will be featuring this amazing cartridge. So for today's card inspiration I give you a card you can give to someone who really has gone ABOVE and BEYOND for you:
I always find it hard to make masculine type cards, so that is why I love this card. It is perfect to give to that certain Male friend in your life. So for this card I used the CRICUT ARTFULLY SENT cartridge and my CRICUT EXPLORE WITH BLUETOOTH. I cut this card at 7" wide on the CHALK IT UP PAPER PACK. This card uses two different pages in the digital booklet:
For the main I card I used the Alien Sentiment card found on Page 28. I also used the Sentiment found on this page and cut this at 4" wide. For the stars, I turned to another card in the CRICUT ARTFULLY SENT booklet:
On Page 20 you will find the stars as the ICON to this Pop-Up card. I cut two of these one at 2" and the other at 3".
No we can turn to the design of the card. I took the FLAXEN, LAGOON, and SORBET solid card stock and cut them to fit behind each Alien on the front of the card. Using ALEENE'S TURBO TACK GLUE, I glued the paper behind the Aliens and let dry. I took each star and using SPONGE DAUBERS, I took the SORBET INK and LAGOON INK and inked the edges of the star with a thick outline. I also took a smaller SPONGE DAUBERS and highlighted some of the stars through out the card. For the sentiment I took some FOAM TAPE and raised the sentiment up from the card. I wanted the sentiment to really stand out, so I turned to one of my favorite mediums....RANGERS WHITE ENAMEL ACCENT. This card could not be easier to make. I think it took a total of 10 minutes from start to finish since CRICUT EXPLORE AND DESIGN SPACE and the CTMH CRICUT ARTFULLY SENT make it so easy!! Thanks for taking a look at today's Kreation!!
