Sara, from her blog 'Sara W. Andrews', created a challenge asking us to use a big title or big photo on a project. I love that she provided samples of both layouts and cards! Her projects are great! To see the challenge, which is open until next Sunday, May 12, 2013, and her projects, click here.
I loved that Sara used the negative space for her title, so I tried that too. How much easier it is to put a lettering on this way, rather than trying to line up and glue down lettering! The text is from Cricut Alphalicious, cut at 3".
I backed it in white and added a kraft paper mat. That was then adhered to a card I cut to fit.
I recycled a die cut I had made a few days ago that I never used on a tutorial. You may have seen it pictured on the lead collage on yesterday's blog post, but to shorten the post a bit, she was cut from it so I am thrilled to get to use her here! She was cut at 3" from the Cricut cartridge Recess. Her tummy is accentuated with a second top cut and curved to keep her from being so flat. To use her for this card, I changed her hair color and re-made her arm (since I had glued it so well to the tiny paper chalkboard on the original!)
I finished the card with silly chalkboard scribble. This will be a Teacher Appreciation card my kiddo will give her teacher.
