Note to self – Join the fun!

I created this card to remind us not to forget to join the fun!  This is a combination of the July Stamp of the Month, S1607 From the Notebook and C1648 Carnival Fun.I’m entering this card into the Heart 2 Heart challenge!

Speaking of the fun, this card looks like a lot of work but it’s not, which makes it nice.  “From the Notebook” images are cut out with the Cricut Cartridge Artistry Collection and “Carnival Fun” has a matching thin cut!   “Easy peasy lemon squeezy” as my daughter likes to say.

I used a mix of thin 3D foam tape and regular 3D foam tape to create different layers in the card.  This allowed me to overlap the images and create the clustering.

I used my Ranger Liquid Pearls to add color and dimension to the popcorn and mustard on the corn dog here.  I also used them to put the chocolate on the ice cream.

I added some of the yellow to the popcorn to make it look like it was buttered.  This would be a great card for the foodie who loves the movie or carnival foods!

Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day,
