This week is all about supporting your cause at Fantabulous Cricut. We are challenging you to make a project in honour of a cause near and dear to your heart (i.e. breast cancer awareness, autism, MADD, etc.).
The image on my card is from the "Together for Autism Campaign" (which I've just discovered has ended, unfortunately). I printed it onto heavy cardstock and then hand cut it out. The children have puzzle pieces on their shirts, and I've also added an additional puzzle piece cut from My Community, as the puzzle piece is the universal symbol of autism. It represents the puzzling condition of autism and also how individuals on the spectrum just don't seem to "fit in" with the rest of society.
The frame and shadow behind the image were cut from George and Basic Shapes. The orange layer was run through the Cuttlebug with a Spots and Dots folder. The background mat was embossed with a Cuttlebug Measure by Measure Ruler border folder and then I used my Martha Stewart score board to extend some of the lines. I added some gems to finish things off.
Please join us at FCCB this week and create something to support a cause that means something to you.
***Don't forget: Next Monday begins our "Share the Love" Blog Crawl at Fantabulous Cricut. With lots of project inspiration and prizes along the way, this is one event you are not going to want to miss!***
