Good morning my friends! Can you believe it is November already? Yikes!!!! I hope you all are doing well since Sandy came to visit. We are fine except for some roof damage. I feel so bad for those in N.Y and N.J and those in VA as well dealing with the snow. By the way, I hope you all had a chance to Hop with us this past weekend. Hopefully you found some Holiday/Winter inspiration. Today Erica from My Cricut Craft Room asked us to use the Letter "S" and boy do I have a card for you.
My grandson Sammy turned 4 years old October 27th and he loves Diego so I made him a Silly, Sammy, Shaker card. At least this year we didn't have "S"now. Here are the details:
This is the first time I tried one of these and I just love how fun this is! I first started with a base card from Beyond Birthdays. This cart has so many aperture cards with squares, rectangles or circles. I cut this @ 5" from the image on page 92. I cut 2 pieces of clear acrylic @ 4 x 3 1/4". The yellow "S"tar back ground is from DCWV all about boys stack.
"Diego" was cut from Everyday Paper Dolls. The main doll was cut @ 4" in Blackout. I used some Peachy Keen Stamps for his face. Here are the sizes for the clothing:
vest: 1.25x 3.71
hair 1.67 x 3.39
shoes 2.01 x 4.01
shorts 1.45 x 4.14
shirt 2.07 x 3.78
net .77 x 2.25
I inked the edges with distress inks and added some faux stitching as well. Of course he had to have some blush to his cheeks! He is also on an action wobble for some Shaking!!!!
I cut it almost to size so I would hide the way I glued the acrylic down plus I didn't want all the foam strips showing. I think it gives it a nice clean look.
