Fantabulous Cricut: Shape Card Challenge

Have you had your coffee yet this morning? Monday's often require the biggest jolt.  Maybe some inspiration form the Design Team at Fantabulous Cricut will help get you going and make you want to join us for this week's challenge.

Challenge #171
Shape Cards

For this challenge, I created this fun coffee mug card using the Cricut American Alphabet cartridge.
Not what you think this card will be when you weld two base shapes together to create the card! I really played around with the size of the card so it would fit into a 3 1/2 x 8 1/2 envelope. The trick to doing this I found is to make sure you have all the pieces and layers displayed before making them the size you want. That way the layers will match up better.
I selected a fun print as my coffee mug and added the embossed layer underneath for my heart. I felt that some hand stitching would really complete the look of the card.
On the inside, I added my leftover heart form my mug cut an this cute Pink by Design stamp. Hope you find some time to join us this week at Fantabulous Cricut and our Shape Card Challenge.
