The challenge this week at Jitterbuggin’ is to follow the sketch, use primary colors (red, blue, yellow) and use the Cricut. Sherri’s sketch shows a school theme, which we can use, or we can choose use any theme we want. I stuck with the school theme because it goes well with primary colors.
This card came to me fairly quickly. I decided to use “teacher’s pet” as my sentiment, literally in this case. As you can see, I chose a dog as my teacher’s pet. The Cricut cartridges I used are Hello Kitty Greetings for the books and apple, Paper Pups for the dog, and Locker Talk for the sentiment and hall pass inside the card. Oh, I used one more cartridge — Give A Hoot for the zig zag border that I placed the sentiment on.
My patterned paper is DCWV’s Grade School pack and I used the glittery argyle pattern for the front of the card. I had a scrap of blue paper from that pack that had a bee printed on it and it just fit the front of my card. The pup is cut from Core’dinations cardstock and I popped him up using 3D foam pop dots. I used Glossy Accents on the apple and also on the nose of the dog. I did some faux stitching with a white Sharpie Poster-Paint marker.
On the inside, I used a Stampin’ Up ticket corner punch. I tied a piece of jute through the hole in the hall pass.
