Cricut Autumn Celebrations Hope card

Today's 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card was made using the ribbon from the Cricut Autumn Celebrations cartridge.  Both Melanie and I chose this ribbon image from the Autumn Celebrations cartridge to make our breast cancer cards, but there are other ribbon images available on the Stand and Salute, Designer's Calendar and Pink Journey Cricut cartridges.
I cut this ribbon image at 3-1/2", so it would be the focal point of the card.  There are many layers to this image that give it a lot of pizzazz.  I used the MAMBI Fight Like a Girl, Pink Breast Cancer paper stack to make the card itself.  The strips of paper are cut at 1-3/4" each.  The top scalloped sections were cut with a die (see HERE) using the Cuttlebug and then layered on top of one another.
Don't forget that the ribbon image is used for many different cancers and other causes.  So, this could be a card for someone fighting a different type of cancer or even for a military woman who needs some love and encouragement - just change up the papers.

We have a SECOND Race for a Cure stamp set by My Creative Time to give away!

How can you win?
1) Leave a comment under this post and all the posts this week to maximize your chances of winning.  Click HERE if you don't know how to leave a comment.

That's it!  Winner will be drawn on Sunday, October 16th.

Wow, think I am the first one today. Love your project Hope, it is really pretty and bright enough to cheer anyone up. I think the bottom striped paper is an older SU Designer paper. I think I have that one to.

Deanna said...

What a beautiful card. I wanted to thank you for recognizing that there are other cancers out there besides breast cancer. As someone who just two weeks ago and her 6th surgery for re-occurring thyroid cancer I appreciate it. Sometimes it feels like the only cancer out there worth fight is breast cancer and while it is definitely important we shouldn't forget the others.

Kymberlee said...

I love the simplicity of the card without it looking plain.

Ruby said...

Another wonderful card. These cards touch me a lot. I am a 4 year survivor so this awareness is so important to me. Thanks for your reminder in the form of cards.
