Forever Young Wall Art

Hello! I have another project for you. My daughter recently painted her room neon pink. Yes, you read that right. Neon PINK! It hurts my eyes but she loves it so that's okay. She's the one who has to live in it. Her "motif" is bright pink and zebra. So with that in mind I created this:

I really enjoyed making this and I will be making some more for her soon. I got an 8 x 10 canvas from Michaels and painted it lime(ish) green. I let it dry overnight. I cut this image from the Forever Young Cricut Cartridge, then used mod podge to glue it all down. I let that dry overnight then used a hot glue gun to attach a fabric flower. I broke off the prongs from a jeweled brad and hot glued that to the center of the flower. My daughter seems to like it and now my youngest daughter wants a picture for her room too!

Thanks for looking and as always any comments are welcome. Have a great week!

New Project (finally)!

I finally got a chance to craft again! School's out for now. I go back in two weeks for the summer semester but they are online classes so hopefully I will have more time to get in some crafting. Anyway, on to today's project. My husband asked me to make a birthday card for one of his co-workers. The guy is in a band so I knew this fox would be perfect! I cut him out at 3.25 inches from Birthday Bash. I embossed the background paper using the stars folder. On the flap of the envelope I used one of the small folders that came with my Cuttlebug then swiped some ink across it. I really like the way it came out.
I used some pop dots to give it dimension. I used two different kinds which made the guitar sit higher than I wanted but I still made it work. I attached the arm at the shoulder and let it rest over the guitar to make it look a little more "natural"

This is the inside of the card. I don't remember what size I cut this at. It is on the Phrase feature key of the fox.

I hope you liked today's card. As always comments are welcome and thanks for stopping by.
