Simply Crafts w/ Glora & Pam - Happy Birthday Sweetie!

Hi Crafters!  It's the first Wednesday of the month which means it's Simply Crafts w/ Glora & Pam day!  It is Glora's turn this month to choose the cut and she chose the gumball machine from the Sweethearts Cricut cartridge.  This is the first time I've put together this cut.  I like the way it turned out.  I didn't have time to make a video so I'll do my best at explaining what I did.

I hid all of the dash lines on the main cut to make a solid background which is the light blue cardstock.  I pasted down the gumballs, pop dotted the heart and stamped my message on the blue cardstock.  The sentiment comes from the My Pink Stamper's new stamp set called Sweet Goodness.

I then cut out the same solid base again using clear acetate paper.  I glued down all of the top layers on that.  I then pop dotted that whole piece on top of the light blue cut.  Here is a side picture so you can see what I'm talking about.

The pattern paper on the machine and the gumballs were printed out w/ my Imagine using the Bubblegum Stripes Imagine cartridge.  I embossed the white cardstock using the Pajama Stripes Cuttlebug embossing folder then put blue brads in the corners.

Now be sure to stop over at Glora's blog because you know she will have something amazing for you to see.  She goes above and beyond on her projects.  Thanks for stopping by!  :)

This is really cute! I love how you made the heart a different color than all the other gumballs. :)

Pam this is terrific. I love the patterns you used from your Imagine. This card would be awesome for a girl or a boy. So cute. I love that we both used acetate but I think yours look cooler because you popped it up! So fun! Hugs- Glora

This is such a cute card and totally perfect for a guy birthday. I have seen this cut lots of times in my book and never thought to create this cut with masculine papers. Thanks for the inspiration and have a great day. :)
