My son's girlfriend has a little brother who has been in hospital this week so I decided to make him a little card to cheer him up and amazingly the image I chose has the colours featured in this weeks colour challenge over at Creative Inspirations.
Now I need help ... a non-essential element of the theme at Creative Inspirations is any card but square so I thought right I'll have a go. And I've been having a go all afternoon with my Personal Cricut Elegant Edges cartridge which features a 'book' setting but could I get it to work? NO! In the end the centre of my card is shaped as I wanted but I'll have to hold my hand up defeated and the rounded corner punch came out.
With all this stress I couldn't begin to put a fancy design together so I popped across to Papertake Weekly and grabbed one of their sketches. Their challenge this week is Anything Goes so my Get Well Soon Fella can have a go at competing there too I think.
Finally I would love to know if any of you intelligent crafty people can give me any hints and tips on how to achieve a shaped card with a Personal Cricut Machine before I kick the machine around the room!!! LOL!
Enjoy the weekend and hope to catch up with you all over the weekend too. x
So here's my card followed by the sketch:
