Hello and Happy Wednesday my crafty friends! Today I am up on the blog to share this adorable card I created using the awesome Cutie KaToodles Teacup Panda file. This file is just so super cute and so easy to put together. If you don't have this file, you need to stop by and pick it up: http://kadoodlebugdesigns.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=55&products_id=756
So, first things first..... I uploaded this cutie to Design Space, re-adjusted the size a bit and decided that I wanted my sentiment "A whole "Latte" Love just for you!" to be written onto the cup. I used the Chloe font in Design Space to write out my sentiment (using the Armadillo Cricut Pen) and attached it to the cup. I then cut out each piece using my Cricut Explore. Once all pieces were cut, I used my Color Box Chalk Inks (Gray, Black Bird, French Blue, Dark Peony, Orchid Pastel and Rose Pink) to shade each piece. I then adhered all of my pieces using Art Glitter Glue. I added some additional highlights using a White Gelly Roll Pen, a black Pigma Micron Pen (002) and then chalked a little bit more using my Pebbles Pearlescent Chalks (Shimmer Shades).
The base of my card measures: 5" x 7". The base is made using ReCollections card stock. The patterned paper I used for my mat is from the Words to Live By pack from Craft Smith. I used my corner rounder to round the corners on both the base and the mat. I also lightly chalked the edge of my card using Color Box Chalk Ink (Seattle Sky). I adhered my mat and paper piecing on to the base of my card using Art Glitter Glue. And to finish it off, I added some sparkly and patterned pieces of washi tape that I had in my stash.
I hope you enjoyed today's project and thank you for stopping by!!
