Rock Star card from Cricut Lite Slumber Party Cartridge


Surprise!  See the Cricut Lite Slumber Party cartridge isn't only for girls!

I took this guitar image and made it a little more "guy friendly", for those musical guys in your life!  This guitar was super easy to cut at 4-1/2" and came with the black square background.  I added some pen work to dress up the front of the guitar and give it some detail.  I chose to make an A2 card for this project.

Then, I used some silver Star Dream paper and embossed it with the Diamond Emboss Cuttlebug folder to layer behind the image.  The star paper is from DCWV.  Orange cardstock is by Core'dinations and Bo Bunny.


Please head over to Hallmark Scrapbook blog, where I am guest designing this week!  I created a companion page to go with my Cricut Cindy Loo "Pretty" layout, shown above. You'll want to see it!

P.S. I am also sponsoring a "you pick one" cartridge giveaway at Hallmark.  For extra chances, leave a comment here and there!
