It's Robin's birthday - and everybody at Fantabulous Cricut is celebrating! Robin is the wonderful creator and leader of the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. It has been such a delight to get to know Robin over the past number of months and I am blessed to have the opportunity to work with her. Happy Birthday, Robin!
This week's challenge at Fantabulous Cricut is to make a birthday-themed card or project, such as a banner, centrepiece, layout... You choose! I opted to make a card.
In order to create the white mat for behind the frame, I simply hid the inner contours of the image. After cutting, I ran the white mat through my Cuttlebug, using the Happy Birthday folder. I had to run it through twice, turning at a 90 degree angle in order to emboss the bottom portion of the mat. This folder lends itself quite nicely for that. I then cut the frame itself in black. I added pink gemstones all around the frame as well.
I used some chunky glitter crystals for the cake itself and then layered all the other pieces. I used Pop Dots to adhere the cake to the mat. I punched some corners to match and finally tied on a pink bow for a final touch. I love the way this card turned out - and I hope Robin does too!
Head over to Fantabulous Cricut to wish Robin a happy birthday - and to submit your birthday card creation in this week's challenge.
