I made this whimsical card for the weekend challenge on the Cricut Circle Message Board. The challenge is to make a project using a sun.
The card measures 6″ x 6″ and the background is printed from a graphic I purchased when I was a member of the PC Hug Club. Unfortunately, that site no longer exists — I wish it did because they had some really cute clipart.
The sun is cut from Gypsy Wanderings at 2″ and embellished with some Stickles. The bee is from Creative Critters 2 and it is cut at 1.75″. I trimmed the hearts off the ends of the antennae and added pompoms. I added some Stickles around the edge of the wing. The bee’s face is a Peachy Keen stamp. I inked and chalked the face.
The banner is cut from New Arrival (it is the banner with the plane) and it is cut at 1.5″. I inked the banner and added a stamped sentiment from one of the many Studio G $1 stamps that are in my collection. I used DMC Memory Thread for the banner’s tow ropes.
For the inside of the card, I used another graphic from my clipart collection.
