Happy Friday! I hope all you USA followers had a great Independence Day yesterday and a happy belated Canada Day to my northern friends.
Today, I'm starting a celebration, and I've got lots of reasons to celebrate! It's Friday, I'm part of the fantastic 3 Girl JAM design team and we're starting a new shaped card challenge today, with inspiration on the challenge blog, it's Friends With Flair, my father, suffering from pneumonia and blood clots in his lungs is improving rapidly, AND tomorrow is my BIRTHDAY! See? Lots of reasons to celebrate!
I absolutely LOVE shaped cards. They are one of my favorite things to create, and are so easy to do with either a Cricut or a Silhouette. For this particular card, I used my Cricut Expression 2 to create it.
And, of course, it uses 3 Girl JAM ribbon. This is Baby Girl ribbon from the Baby Bundle, found in the 3 Girl JAM store.
I tell crafters that if they only want to own one Cricut cartridge, buy the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge, available here. It is my all-time favorite cartridge. I used it to make the card, the card front, and the flower on this project. The ribbon slide is a Spellbinder die. I used one of my all-time favorite Unity sets to stamp the sentiment, "Happy Everything". Papers are Authentique Delightful 12x12. The chipboard butterfly is from UmWow Studio. Some Trendy Twine and a CTMH pearl finish off the card. All the edges were inked with CTMH whisper ink.
Do you like making shaped cards, too? Then link up on the 3 Girl JAM challenge blog. Our own Carri, from Double Click Connections is sponsoring the challenge, giving away 3 packages of her fabulous homemade skittles. There's also a $10 Gift Certificate to the 3 Girl JAM store AND a guest designer spot. YEAH! See, the celebration goes on and ON!
