Whimsical Scraps & Bugs Challenge 13

The latest challenge we gave our DT over at Whimsical Scraps & Bugs was to alter flash cards (or jumbo playing cards) using their Cricuts and an Easter theme. Wow! The DT came up with some really super cute ideas and I hope y'all check out their awesome projects on the blog.

I decided to make a stand-alone Easter banner for the challenge. I double layered the flash cards (for a total of 14) and then covered them with paper before inking the edges. I made sure not to adhere the top portion of the cards together so that I would have room to slip in a tag. Each card has a tag inserted - the first tag has John 3:16 on it and then the remaining six tags have a beautiful Easter poem on them. I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch holes in the tags and the cards with eyelets so that I could tie on ribbon.

The cartridges I used for this project were George for the tags & letters and then Home Solutions for the butterflies & flower embellies. I also used skittles, glitter glue & lots of flowers/ribbon. Products used include My Mind's Eye, Making Memories, Bazzill & The Paper Studio paper; StampCraft ink; Ranger Stickles; Prima flowers; and K&Co. ribbon.

Please make sure to check out our other ladies' beautiful creations and take a look at our next challenge. I plan on posting it Tuesday and hope to see a lot of beautiful results! Make sure to play along with us!

Happy Scrapping!

Make sure to tell me what you are using it I can check it out too! hehe
And I agree with you...we all have our problems/fights/issues, but concentrating on the good things or taking the time to send a little letter can make all the difference in the world.
