Hello Hippie Chick card with Feeling Groovy!


Hey, hippie chicks!  I saw this cute "Hippie Chick" paper pad from DCWV and knew it would be so fun to pair with the new Cricut Lite Feeling Groovy cartridge.

You can see that the funky hearts on the bottom 2/3 of the card and the funky heart on the Feeling Groovy cartridge are a perfect match!



So, I decided to make this 5-1/2" x 5-1/2" card and use the heart image and then spell out the word "hello".  I used my "fit to length" button for the word "hello".  I entered the length I wanted the word to be and then the machine will find the right height/size to cut everything out.  This is such a handy tool for card makers especially,  I made sure to figure this out for the shadow FIRST.  The correct height was 1-3/4".

Next, I cut the heart at 1-3/4" in navy stripe paper and then the inside heart at 1-1/2" so there would be a thick outline.  I used a Papertrey Ink orange button and threaded some jute through it and tied it.


I added a piece of matching paper to the inside and called it good!  Rounding the corners on the bottom added a little interest and matched the swirls/roundness of the design.

I hope everyone had a fun, yummy, and enjoyable holiday!

Stay tuned for a fabulous Melanie creation coming up next!
