Today I am working on cards for project Sunshine and Smiles! So, I thought why not play with and learn Smiley Cards. There are so many cute cuts on this cartridge. I've made a few of the snowmen and you will have to come back for the Christmas in July blog hop to see how cute he is and have a chance to win a set of gift tags.
This is the first card. A really cute angel smiley face.
I cut these pretty big because I wanted it to cover a large portion of the card and I need the cards to be quick and easy because Erica's goal for Sunshine and Smiles is 5000 cards. It doesn't show up very well but I used Folk Art Metallic Pearl White on the wings and halo. I just poured some on my sheet of parchment paper and painted it on with a makeup sponge. The glittery wings are done the same way but with silver Folk Art Extreme Glitter paint. I used metallic Jelly Roll Gel pens and markers to add some faux stitching. I still need to find a sentiment for these cards.
I'm not happy with how the following 2 cards turned out. But here they are. They aren't awful, I just don't like them at all and I really don't know what I could do to make them better. Would really appreciate some pointers, tips or ideas for next time.
And finally, a Cowboy card. I'm not really a fan of the western/country/cowboy thing, well unless Kid Rock is singing Cowboy, then I like it but I do like how this card turned out!
If you would like to make cards for Project Sunshine and Smiles please see My Cricut Craft Room for more details.
I love comments and really do want suggestion or tips because this is something I really struggle with in card making!
