EVEN THOUGH MOST OF MY CHILDREN ARE GROWN, I STILL LOVE SEEING THE SESAME STREET CHARATERS (THEYRE SO CUTE)...AND NOW I CAN LOOK FORWARD TO WATCHING ALL OF THEM WITH MY SOON TO BE 1st GRANDBABY!
I made this card for two challenges that are going on right now...The first is for the challenge over at sendasmile4kids.blogspot.com, their challenge is "Birthday Fun For Kids" and the other is over at diecuttindivas.blogspot.com, their challenge is "Summer colors" and you have to make use of the following colors...red, orange and yellow.
Ernie and friend!
For this card I used the following cartridges and measurements. Sesame Street Friends-
Ernie #1 (pg 52), cut at 5 1/2 inches, 1-2-3-4 and 5/icon (pgs 68, 69, 70, 71 and 72), cut at 1 inch and Plantin SchoolBook-sentiment (mixed letters), cut at 3/4 inch.
I really enjoyed making this easel card and it is pretty straight forward to put it all together. I made a mat for the sentiment that measure, 5 1/2" x 5 3/4" (green) and 5"x 5" (white) added two buttons to keep the card positioned and centered the words.
I cut a 6" x 6" square (white) and mounted a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" square (green) onto it...and from there, I placed Ernie in his proper spot and adhered the numbers around him. Oh, and the little duck was given google eyes!
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and having a look. Kathie
