Cricut Carz Challenge #40




Hi everyone,

Just want to welcome you to my blog, I hope everyone is doing well on this Wednesday and is ready for a new challenge with CCC, you may enter it by clicking here. This weeks challenge is to make a card using scalloped circles, ovals, squares or rectangles. Use any cartridge and any theme you'd like. Please feel free to join the challenge and invite your friends, we look forward to seeing all of your creations...

Here's a little inspiration, I am calling it "The Bird's Nest" This is a Z fold card, I used the Create a Critter, Graphically Speaking and Storybook carts. I hope you enjoy my take on this challenge.

The Bird's Nest

*Brown and white cardstock is from Joanne fabrics Value Packs.
*Brown paper is cut at 4x10 1/2, scored at 3 1/2 and 7
*White paper cut at 3 1/2 x 3 7/8
*Polka Dot paper is by Prima Marketing, The Breathe Paper Collection from Biglot, it is cut at 3 1/4 x 3 3/4
*Bird is cut at 2 1/2 the nest is at 1 3/4 and the other is at 1 1/4, The bird's house is at 2 1/2. On the first nest, I used a corner punch to make the nest look a little more realistic, or you could cut at 1 1/2
*The scallops are from Graphically Speaking and are cut at 3 1/4 and 1 3/4
*The circles are from Create a Critter and are cut at 1 1/2 and 1 1/4
*The scalloped square is from the Storybook cart and is cut at 2 1/2 and I used a square punch and that size is 1 7/8
*I also used Martha Steward White Opaque Marker and Brownstone Ink

Don't forget, invite your friends and please have fun!

This is a great card! I love the triple fold like that. You were over at my site and inquired about the folded window card and a tutorial. Actually in my post if you click where it says "here" in blue, it will take you to the tutorial I followed! Thanks for stopping by and for the nice comment. Have a great weekend!
