Na x 16


Here's my latest card and it's again using the brilliant Cricut Explore. I spent some time this week having a look at the Cricut website to see what's included in the subscription package and found a fab set of designs in a cartridge called 'word collage'. It's got lots of different themes and is great with the drawing function of the Cricut. For this card I've used the superhero version on the right hand side of my wardrobe card.

I simply drew the design onto black card with a gold metallic marker (well the cricut did) and then mounted it onto my base card. The base was made out of a piece of A4 yellow cardstock folded at 6cm on one side and 9cm on the other to make an uneven wardrobe. On the left hand side of the card I used a topper cut from a 12x12 paper that's been in my stash for ages and the Batman logo which was a tag on a pair of pyjamas I got recently from Primarni.

A really simple card, using a mix of old and new. I sense this may be the start of something with these word collage designs...

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
Fantabulous Cricut Challenges 'male' 16/6 (not sure if this card fits the rules or not as it uses a Cricut draw rather than cut-please delete if it is not allowed)
