A Couple Of Fun Cards That Fit Challenges

When I was asked to make two 'fun' or 'quirky' no stamps required cards I was really stumped for what to make. The person wanted one card for their son who was going off to Police Academy Training and also another card or project for the same person but with a 'Cow' on it (no I did not ask why lol). This could only mean Cricut projects to me if I cannot use stamps!!!
For the card I made I used the policeman off the Cricut 'Everyday Paper Dolls' Cartridge along with a couple of accessories. For the cow I was going the make a bookmark from the 'Animal Kingdom' cartridge but as I don't have this cartridge myself and was cutting it at a crop on a baby bug it came out quite small so decided to go with another card. The person who ordered these decided on the sentiments after I had shown them what I was making.


This card fits into The Pink Stamper Challenge where she is looking for projects that 'Represent The Hero's Of The 9/11 Tragedy' plus it fits in the Create 4 Fun Challenge where they have a colour theme of 'Red, White & Blue'. Also Lorraine over at Crafty Coo has a challenge running to remember those who were involved in the 9/11 tragedy and is asking us to make something in the colours 'Red, White & Blue'.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day.

Hi Kim,
These are fantastic cards without stamps. I'm sure that they will fit the bill nicely.
I hope you are keeping well.

Love these!!! So very creative. I just can't seem to come up with good ideas with my Cricut. Haven't used it for anymore than basic cuts for awhile. Oh well!!!
