Here is a card I made today:
The card is 6 1/4"x4 1/2," and is made from white card stock. The black mat is 6 1/8"x4 3/8" and the ombre green paper is 6"x4 1/4." Both pieces of patterned paper are from the Spring and Summer Stack by DCWV.
The Polaroid image is from the Silhouette Store. It is called "Polaroid Photo Frame" by Snapdragon Snippets (#18096). It was cut at 3 5/8"x3." I then cut a black mat for it at 3 3/4"x3 1/8." I also cut a piece of palm fronds patterned paper to fit behind the open part of the frame. I used a stamp from the "Big Sentiments 2" stamp set from My Craft Spot for my sentiment.
The bird is from the "3 Birds on Parade" cartridge. It is the first image in the handbook (page 28). I cut it at 2 1/4," not cutting the face or beak. I then stamped a face on my bird using the Critter Faces Set from Peachy Keen Stamps. I also flocked the wings and stomach, which I hand cut, to give my bird a little texture.
The final piece of my card was the flower. It was also cut from the Silhouette. It is called, "Set of 4 Layered Flowers" and by PPbN Designs (#56023). I cut only one of the flowers, and then only the three smallest layers and the center dot. The largest of the layers was 1.415"x1.54." I pieced them together, leaving the petals loose and curling them slightly. I added some glitter to the center of my flower, then attached it to the top corner of the image.
I made this for the following challenges:
My Craft Spot: shake on something (glitter, flocking)
The Friday Mashup: sketch with an ombre background (I cheated a little and used an ombre paper)
Exploring Cricut: flower
Peachy Keen: photo/color inspiration (birds, blue and orange colors)
