My Pink Stamper Challenge

The Challenger: Robyn at My Pink Stamper
The Challenge: Make a project using your Cricut and the colors Pink, Green, and Black!!

Since I've been regularly looking at blogs, I've been following the Pink Stamper.  Her projects are inspiring, simple and she has a lot of good giveaways!  

The first step to this project was to create the basket for the hot air balloon in Inkscape.  Then using SCAL I placed the basket in the center of a rectangle (1.62 by 3 inches).   I first printed the basket using a Cricut Marker.  Then without removing the mat from the Cricut, I cut the rectangle.  The black rectangles were cut at 1.75 by 4 inches.

The balloons are 1.25 inch circles from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.  For each balloon I cut 4 circles, folded them in half and then glued them together.  Very Easy!!!  I added some pink ribbon and a simple sentiment...card complete!
