MCT Designer's Challenge Birthday Card Using the Artiste Cartridge

Good morning me hearties!  Oh, that's right, it isn't "Talk Like a Pirate Day" anymore, ooops!  ;)

Today I have a cute little, FAST card to share with you.  Besides the adorable Stitched Cloud Dies from MCT, my favorite part about this one is how QUICKLY it came together!


I used a sheet of Sky CS and sanded down the edges and into the the paper a little ways to soften up the background.  The two shapes for the sun are cut in Buttercup and Honey CS with the Close to My Heart Cricut Artiste Cartridge on my E2 cutting machine.  The sweet, floating red balloon is an image on the same Cartridge.  The matching balloon stamp comes with the Artiste set, and fits the cut perfectly.  There is normally a little "shine" cut out in the balloon shape, so I used the Cricut Craft Room to hide it.  The balloon string is even a stamp!  I was able to bend it to just the right shape since the stamps are clear acrylic.  So versatile!

Speaking of versatile and QUICK, the sentiment is found on the CTMH Holiday Tags My Acrylix...one of my go-to stamps right now!  


I am linking up today with the My Creative Time Designer's Challenge: Birthday!  :)

Did I mention how this card came together LICKITY-SPLIT!?  ;)
