Fantabulous Cricut Challenge

Good evening and thank you for popping by today.

As I have a few spare days I have decided my Cricut is going to become my friend and not my enemy when it comes to creating cards and projects. I have had my Cricut for nearly two years now and mainly use it to create mats and layers for my stamped image cards unless I am asked for that certain something from a customer or family member. I have seen a lot of lovely projects around blogland which is what has spurred me on and with that said here is my Cricut only card.

Some of you may remember the door plaque I made for my god son's bedroom HERE, well it turns out it is admired by some of his friends and in fact I have made three others for friends of his since. 

With that in mind I went with this card for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge which this week is 'It's A Pirates Life'. I am sure it will get used in due course.

This is a 6" square card, the 'A Pirates Life For Me' sign was a freebie I got from Create With TLC and I think it is just perfect for my card. The skull and cross bones I made myself using SCAL 2 from a clipart image. I used glossy accents on the eye patch, eyes, nose and mouth and then enamel accents for the teeth. Plus I was really brave and edged the pirate sign and sentiment with a black ink pad.

Card stock - Bazzill
Seniment - Computer Generated
Skull & Cross Bones - SCAL 2
Glossy & Enamel Accents - Ranger
