Sending Sunshine – The Cricut Way

A fast and happy card for a young lady in Texas with a broken wrist.  As she is an active girl, I thought sending her some sunshine would make her day.  When you are 8, getting a card in the mail is a special occasion  Actually, that is probably true no matter how many years it has been since you were 8.

So, here is to happy mail.

The cowgirl is from Once Upon a Princess.  She is cut at 4 inches tall.  I hand-cut her bandana.  The sun is from a digital cartridge, Classroom – April and May, and was cut a 2.5 inches tall.  I used my Expression 2 and Cricut Craft Room for this project.  Her rodeo buckle was done in Cricut Craft Room with an oval and the letter “K” from the Cricut Craft Room Basics.  I used Glossy Accents to add dimension and shine.  The completed card measures 5.5 inches square.

I cut the “cowgirl” in white cardstock and used my Copics to add her skin tone, hair color, and facial features.  All of the paper with the exception of the ground are from Echo Park Hello Summer.  The greeting tag was printed and hand-trimmed.  And the lasso is Papertrey Ink rustic twine.

That’s about  it – hope it makes for a happy mail day in Texas.
