FCCB 213 - Card Stash

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #213 Card Stash

This Weeks Sponsor
Classic Dad Stamp Set

~This Weeks Challenge~
Card Stash
Create a project to replenish your stash: Baby, Thank You, Birthday, etc.

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.

For my project I used the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and a paper pack from CTMH. I was inspired by a card I saw in one of the Cricut Idea Books from Northridge Publishing. They are online now, and available on an iPad. There are so many amazing designers who create for them and no shortage of inspiration. 

I used a card cut for my base and the matching cut for the patterned paper, sized slightly smaller. I then used some matching cardstock and cut the bird and wing, and lastly the banner. After inking all my edges with Distress Inks I used a Stampin'Up Hello greeting and some black enamel accents for the bird's eye and brads on the banner. 

I used scalloped edged scissors to cut the strip of paper under the banner and popped up the bird's wing with foam dots.

For the inside I cut another card base in white and inserted it on the inside.  I used a scroll stamp, a 'thanks' sentiment, and a Stampin'Up border stamp, and I inked my edges.

I figured while I had everything on my Gypsy it would be so quick to add another card to my stash- so I created this quick birthday card, substituting a butterfly for the bird.

I hope you will stop over at the FCCB blog to check out all the other amazing projects by our Design Team! And be sure to visit out sponsor - Mark's Finest- to see all their beautiful stamp sets!
