My Sheri Crafts - Ch. 81 Easter - Spring's Gorgeous Pastels

Welcome to Glenda's Cards! Thank you for stopping by today!

It is time for another fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts! Before I tell you about the challenge, I want to welcome Raquel back to the Design Team. You have seen her lovely creations as a past member of the design team but she had to step down for awhile. You may know her as RAQ from Cricut MessageBoard weekly RAQ Challenges. We are so happy Raquel is back and sharing her talent with us!

Now to our challenge this week--Challenge 81 is Easter -Create a card/project using Spring's gorgeous pastels! I decided to try a Shadow Box Card which is another card style marked off my "To Do" list. You can find a great tutorial at Split Coast Stampers for this card style. Just click the link I provided and it will take you to the tutorial.

The double-sided designer patterned papers are from K&Company Watercolor Bouquet. I just love the pretty pinks, greens, and yellows! I started with 2 different patterned papers that were cut at 6 1/2" x 5", rather than the smaller size as stated in the tutorial. Short ends of the papers are scored at 1/2" and 1". After folding, the ends are secured with red Tacky Tape.
For the oval opening in the paper, I used the Creative Memories Oval set.

Cricut Cartridges:  Using Cricut Craft Room.
Easter 2010 - Egg and shadow are cut 3". Happy Easter and shadow are cut at 1".
Other supplies:
Egg is pop-dotted. Flower is Recollections Mulberry Paper Flowers. Ribbon and pearls from my stash.

Be sure to visit My Sheri Crafts and see all the gorgeous colors of Spring projects that the Design Team and Guest Designer have created for you. For more details on the projects, please visit each blog and leave a little love! We enjoy reading your comments! Now we look forward to seeing your lovely projects!
Remember to follow the challenge! One lucky person will be chosen to be our next guest designer and several Ooh La La awards are presented.

Hope you enjoy this card and maybe are inspired to try this card style if you have not done so. I know that I will be making more Shadow Box cards!
