FCCB 218 - Summer Treats

Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #218  Summer Treats

This Weeks Sponsor

Winner will receive Silly Shells Stamp Set
~This Weeks Challenge~
Summer Treats
Create a project that represents the tastes of summer

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 this week I chose to create a Happy Birthday tag and gift bag for my daughter's friend's birthday.  I used the Just Because Cards Cricut cartridge to make the cute popsicle tag card.  Using the Gypsy I welded 2 of the shadow shapes together - flipping one side so it would match the other - to create the card base. I used the matching words to create the inside sentiment and used white embossing powder to heat emboss the Happy Birthday greeting on the front. 

 For the bag I used the same popsicle cut again, in green, and the Stretch Your Imagination Cricut cartridge to cut the Summer, watermelon and ice cream. The butterflies are a Stampin' Up stamp, using Distress Inks.

I attached the tag with some hemp twine and the birthday gift was ready to go!!

I hope you are all enjoying your summer! We have been having some very nice weather and enjoying some time at the lake :) Our summers seem too short here not to enjoy every minute we can! We were fortunate enough to be invited by friends in our church to a BBQ at their lake, and the girls loved it!
