I am so excited to share this fun project with you! It is my first project as a designer for Scrapbookaholic by Abby. She challenged us to pick a random holiday for this month, and there is a great list of unusual holidays on this page for reference. I chose Something on a Stick day which is celebrated March 28th each year. What better for that idea than a corn dog, right?!
I wanted to create a fun shaped card - so I used my Gypsy. The shape is from Just Because Cards, but I did mess with it to get the size I wanted. I took the aspect ratio link off so that I could skew it any way I wanted. With the actual size button on it is 4 inches wide by 5.45 high. I welded 2 of them together using a rectangle to make the shaped card using Kraft colored cardstock.
For the patterned paper layer I used Echo Park paper and cut that same shape at 3.39 wide and 4.78 high with the actual size button on.
Sorry if that portion is confusing to those that don't manipulate the images a lot, but remember you can use a shaped card already on a cartridge and get a similar look if you want :)
The corn dog is from the Carousel Lite cartridge. I thought it was so adorable I was pretty excited to use it. I cut it out at 3.5 inches. I cut it twice. Once in Kraft color, and once in burnt orange. On the burnt orange piece I cut off the stick portion so that the Kraft colored stick would show through. I glued both of these pieces to a white cardstock, and hand cut around it to create an extra wide shadow. Then I added some yellow and red Stickles to mimic Ketchup and Mustard. I wish real condiments were so glittery and fun! *LOL*
The banner is from the Wedding solutions cartridge and is cut at 1.25 inches. I took a stamp from Pink By Design's Simply Everything set and placed it on my block in a curved way to mimic the banner. After stamping I did some stitching on both the banner and the border of the card.
I want to encourage you to join in the fun! Abby would love for anyone and everyone to participate in the challenge for a change to win a wonderful Cosmo Cricket 12 by 12 pack that they so generously donated.
