Theme day Thursday, A Child's Year, with My Cricut Craftroom

 Hi Crafters! 
Today over at My Cricut Craftroom the design team is using A Child’s Year to create our projects. 

I decided to make an easel card for my project today.

Here is a peek at my project and then I will tell you what all I did.

What you need
·       Card stock cut @ 8 ½ by 4 ¼    score @ 4 ½ and 6 3/8
·       Card stock cut at 4 ¼ square  for the front of card
·       Blue dot paper cut at 4” square.
·       Yellow dot cut at 4 by 1 ½
·       Wrap yellow dot paper with blue twine and tie bow.

·       Cut the Fairy from pg 77 @ 3 ¾” and also cut the shadow

I assembled my easel card by folding the score lines in opposite directions, then I attached the 4 ¼ square to the flap on the base of the card.

I then used the blue and yellow papers to create the layers and wrapped them with blue twine and tied a bow.
I adhered them to the “flap” of the card.

After cutting my Fairy I assembled her and popped her up on foam tape and added her to the front of the card.

For the inside to keep the easel standing I cut a piece of yellow paper @ 4 by 1 ¼
And layered on a white cs cut @ 3 ¾ by 1
I stamped happy birthday from a stamp from TPC Studios card creating birthday. Using Memento rich cocoa ink.
I also popped that up on foam tape

I then added 3 gray rhinestones to it.

Here is a look at my completed card.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope that you will head over to My Cricut Craftroom to see what my other design team sisters have made today.
