SCS Ocean's 11 1st Challenge

Spring card with 3-D embellishment. Not sure if this qualifies for the challenge, but I like how it turned out. I cut the front of the card with my Cricut leaving three openings for my little inchies which were stamped, embossed, water colored and then, added crystal glaze to each image for a 3-D affect.
The watering can was also cut using my Cricut machine and the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge.

The Bible Verse at the bottom is Ecclesiastes 3:1 For everything there is a season, and a time to every matter under heaven.

Hi Grace!
What a great idea with the Crystal Glaze for the 3D element. It looks great! Love that watering can :)

Oh.. Grace. I never thought of using the Cricut to cut out a card with three windows. What a neat idea. You could also do something similar with Christmas trees, wreaths. Nice card.

Great idea to use inchies, those are so trendy right now. And the cut out windows for viewing, the verse on the bottom, ties it all together nicely.

Oh I love this!!! I love the crystal glaze! Really makes this pop! I think it should qualify! I hope I can get to the challenge before I leave... I'll be out of town for a week and a half so bear with me while I'm gone. My DD is moving and I'm helping her pack since her DH has already gone and she's trying to homeschool 2 kids, pack, and everything all alone. I love your card today! You really know how to get great stuff out of your cricut!!!

Very cute - I never thought of that idea when thinking 3D - nice job!

I just started hearing about inchies (I'm probably WAY behind!) but this is awesome! I think the Crystal Effects aspect still connects to the 3-D as it "pops" the image out rather than being flat. Beautiful card!

Love that watering can!

I think anything that "challenges" you counts as a challenge :) and Crystal Glaze works for me too. I love the colors in your card too. great work!

This is beautiful! I love how you used the Cricut for the challenge!

I have to admit, I own a Cricut and that cartridge and before I read your post I thought "Oh, that is a cute stamp! I wonder who makes it?"!!! Sad, sad, but oh so very true!!
