World Card

Hello Everybody!

Happy Saturday Night!  I have been working away on a challenge for Moxie Fab.  There are so many challenges going on right now!  Go check it out: Get Inspired by Home Decor Challenge in the Moxie Fab World!

Also, I am submitting this card to the Cuttlebug Spot Challenge: Left Overs.  They are a great blog to visit too.  The Cuttlebug Spot Challenge is to use scrap pieces, things left over from other projects.  After I did this card, I realized all of my pieces were from my scrap pile.  Yay!!  So let's check it out!

The picture for inspiration was:

Love this globe!  What a perfect thing to inspire creativity!

As you will see I was inspired to use an Earth.  Scroll down and I'll show you how I did it!

First I had some nice bright white cardstock.  I used my Cricut (Going Places cartridge) to cut out the Earth and a circle for it to fit on.  I was kinda scared cutting out the circle because if something were to mess up, I didn't have anymore of that paper.  But all was good until I realized I didn't want to paint that circle with Smooch.  It would have taken forever!

I did however paint the land with a green apple Smooch.  Look at how fun and shimmery!  Love it!

So I dumped out my scrap box (there tucked in other places too but we won't go there).  I found this deep blue color to go with my land.  It was a scrap from the box.

There's my scraps pile.  I'll tell you it didn't go back in the box as nicely as it was when I dumped it.  I guess I need to make a few more cards from this pile!  (and there's more in other places!)

I used my small Xyron to adhere my land masses.

I dug through and found a light blue background paper that I adhered to my base card (4.5X5 inches).
The letters are from Making Memories.  They are also glittery so that was a nice touch to my card.

So until next time my friends...stay worldly! :)
