MPS Challenge

Make a project using your Cricut and the colors Pink, Green, and Black!! And be entered to win a Create a Critter cartridge. Here is my project!

            - black card stock
            - pink card stock
            - green card stock
            - patterned paper by BoBunny
            - white ribbon
            - MPS hello stamp
            - black ink pad
            - pink ink pad or pink chalk
            - black marker
            - Cricut cartridge Doodlecharms

            Cut your black card stock down to 5 ½ X 8 ½ and fold in half. Cut your patterned paper down to 4 X 5 ¼. Tie the white ribbon in a knot around your patterned paper towards the bottom leaving just enough room to add your stamp. Tie the knot on the front of the patterned paper. Using the MPS stamps that say “hello” and using a black ink pad stamp the word below the ribbon and just to the left of the knot. Adhere your patterned paper to your black cardstock. Using Doodlecharms on the Cricut cut a dragonfly at 3 inches out of the pink cardstock. (3” makes him just big enough to be overlapping the ribbon.) Then using the green cardstock hit the shift button and leaving the dial at 3” cut the dragonfly again. This will give you the middle of the bug. Before assembling your bug ink/chalk the edges of the dragonfly using pink. I inked both the middle green part and the whole pink dragonfly. I also added eyes using a black marker to the green part of my bug. Using adhesive put your dragonfly together. Then adhere the entire put together bug on the left side of your card. The bottom of him should over lap the ribbon. After I stuck him down I wished I would have used pop dots and made him a little higher. But he’s cute this way too. :) And wa-la you have yourself a cute dragonfly card!

That is definitely a CUTE Dragonfly card. Something perfect to keep on hand for a thank you, just because or even a birthday card. Great job! Thanks for participating in the MPS Color Challenge.

I sent it to mt grandma in-law. I used a silver pen to write in it. And she just went nuts for it! She loved it so much. It made me feel good!
