A little bit about the Cricut Card Fairies: I have been making cards for the Cricut Card Fairy Missions for about two months now. I found that I made more cards than I had a purpose for and hated seeing my cards lay around. When I came across the Cricut Card Fairy Messageboard, I signed up immediately. It is very cool to send out your cards knowing they will brigthen someones day!
For the blog hop, I have made two cards for this blog hop. My first was inspired by all of us adults who are starting classes! I've just started my first Masters class...it's like being a freshman all over again. For my second card I wanted to challenge myself to make a card geared towards a kid.
This "adult" card was inspired by the Cutting Cafe's All About School set. While looking through the file, I saw the chalkboard and thought it would make a wonderful card. I used my white pen to write the sentiment and the 123-ABC border. The apple came from the All About School set. I was able to put it into Inkscape, save it as an SVG and load it into SCAL. I love that you can print and cut these files!
This card recevied the ultimate complement. My toughest critic (aka my husband) said that he really liked it. I think it was the mini chalk and eraser that impressed him so much! lol
This "kiddy" card came out nothing like my original sketch. Originally it was horizontal and had a lot of embellishments. It just goes to show that the best part of crafting is figuring things out as you go! The ruler is again from the Cutting Cafe's All About School set. This time I followed their instructions on how to adjust the image size and print it out. The patterned paper is from Paper Studios All Season Long pack. I used the Birthday Cake cartridge and Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder to finish off the card.
Now onto the best part. The giveaway. It's not a big giveaway but I'm sure you'll enjoy it. I'm giving away two sets of embellishments that I felt complemented the blog hop theme AND you will receive the two cards that I made. Please leave a comment on this post with a way for me to contact you. I'll be using random.org to be select the winner Monday afternoon.
