You're The REEL Deal!

Project #33 of this year
A2 size card (5 1/2" x 4 1/4")
Gray cardstock for card base.
Background papers from scrap drawer.
All solid papers from Recollections.
Some chalking added for details and dimension.
PLAINTIN SCHOOL BOOK p. 69 for Grass cut @ 2" and trimmed to length.

EVERY DAY PAPER DOLLS for doll body p. 28 cut with Blackout Feature @ 4" and for Fisherman clothes and accessories from p. 70.

Sunshine from CREATE A CRITTER p. 52 cut @ 1 3/4".

Here's a little side not about the Sunshine cut in the Create A Critter cartridge.
You can clearly see on the manual sunshine image that it's suppose to have pink, round cheeks. When cutting this image it cuts out holes where the pink is suppose to shine through, just like it cuts out holes for the yes and mouth to show through as black from the previous layer. However, no where on this page does it provide the pink cheeks to cut. Hmmm.... Maybe I'm missing it. I ended up looking for another cut in this book with pink cheeks and cutting out their pink circles. I found if I cut the cheeks the same size as the sun (1 1/4"), then the pink cheek circles just feel through the holes on the sunshine's face. So I ended up cutting them at 2".

Fisherman's face is a PEACHY KEEN Stamp from the set "Simple Sallies" (PK-531). I used the 3/4" face.

Sentiment stamp from Cardz TV Stamps "It's A Guy Thing" set.

Your fisherman card is adorable!

Kate said...

What a bright, fun card! The sentiment is just perfect with your little fisherman. I'm not sure about the sun's cheeks either, but your solution works fine!

Thanks so much for playing along with us at Fantabulous Cricut!
