FCCB #275 - Mother's Day!

Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #275 - Mother's Day-create a card or project for Mother's Day

This Weeks Sponsor

There will be 3 winners of $7 gift certificates!

Create a project inspired by Mother's Day

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. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

For my project this week I've chosen to use a Make It Now project using Cricut Design Space. I love that there are so many projects available, with new ones added all the time, that are ready to go! I love that I can customize them or make them as is. I find just by adding some patterned papers from 6x6 paper pads I can change the project to suit me. You can find this Floral Happy Mother's Day Card in Design Space here.

I love the inlaid look of this card where the negative cuts are filled with the same shapes cut with patterned papers. I took the middle flower, which I had diecut out of white cardstock, and first embossed it with an embossing folder and then dropped Izink Inks on the paper and blended them with a bit of water to create a pretty watercolour look.

Inside, I used some stamps I got with my new Cricut Artistry cartridge from CTMH! It was awesome that I could save a bit of $ buying the digital access since I don't need the actual cartridge. I cannot wait to play with this cartridge!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to head over to the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge blog to see what all the other Design Team members have come up with for this challenge, and enter your own project for a chance to win an awesome gift certificate!
