Welcome to Paper Crafting World and Cooking With Cricut's 2nd Blog-Aversary and our week long celebration! Each day for a whole week (May 19-26) we will be bringing you fabulous projects made by our Design Team members. We have some GREAT blog candy as well as some daily file and graphic give-aways -- so you will definitely want to make PCW-CWC your daily stop every day this week!

Our theme for today is Pearls and this is how I interpreted the theme!

I downloaded the lovely QT Patootie Tweenz Tori image from PCW and coloured her with Copic markers. I stamped around the image with the Dune Dots stamp designed by my friend Sue, available from The Treasury . I cut the image with a labels die and mounted it on a larger die cut that I embossed with my Cuttlebug.

On the card base, I folded half the front back (outwards) to create a more 3D looking card. I stamped the folded part with Perfect Medium using a flower background stamp, then brushed it with perfect pearls to create a flowery, shimmery background.

The sentiment is from a Gina K stamp set and I cut it with a small labels die and backed it with a slightly bigger die cut from black card. I attached this with foam dots to the front of the card.

For the inside, I cut another labels die from white paper and stamped it with another sentiment stamp from Gina K.

Thanks for stopping by and make sure you head on over to Cooking With Cricut to check out the rest of the projects by our amazing Design Teams!

I was wondering how you made the front of the card stand out. That's so cool, and so simple, but it really looks great! Gives the card some "movement."
You did a wonderful job coloring Tori!
