I have another new toy….well actually, I don’t have it. My friend, Shirley has it, and she’s a good sharer. Thanks Shirley! She recently bought the Fancy Frames Cricut Cartridge, and I just had to try it out.
I was planning on using Fancy Frames for scrapbook pages, but it will also work nicely on cards. There is a variety of frames with an added detail on each one. For example, on this frame, there is the swirl on the left corner. I love the shape of this frame and how it highlights the little Valentine girl holding her box of chocolates. (It might not be chocolates. It could just be a card, but I’d like to think there are oooey gooey caramels in there.
OK enough day dreaming! The patterned papers are from a Die Cuts With A View Stack. There were three papers that coordinated and even though they weren’t Valentine papers, they still worked for this card.
The image is from Digi Garden. I love their sweet kids, but they are no longer available since the owner and designer passed away last year. I miss seeing her posts on Facebook and looking at all the great projects on her blog.
I colored the image with Copic Markers. I’m still learning! Right after I finished this, my Blog Friends told us how difficult it is to use red without it bleeding. Yep….I found that out the hard way! I’m still having trouble doing hair, but I’ll keep practicing. I just got some new gray Copics, and used them for her shoes. I think the pinks on the heart turned out OK too.
To finish the card, I added 2 Prima flowers with a red brad in the center and 5 adhesive rhinestones in the upper right corner.
The Fancy Frames Cricut Cartridge is available on Amazon. It features lots of wonderful frames for scrapbooking, card making, and other paper crafting projects. Some of the frames are very ornate, and others don’t feature as much detail.
