Hey Everyone! Ken here with Ken's Kreation's. So I know I do not talk a lot about my personal life, but I had to share why I am making all of these thank you cards. You see I am a Bank Manager for an amazing bank called Washington Trust Bank. Due to circumstances out of my control I lost three of my staff in one month!! Sad story I know....please wipe away those tears. So I have a wonderful team of managers who have been sending me help from their teams to help me out and I just have to make them some Ken's Kreation's to thank them.
So for this card I used one of PPBN's amazing designs. This file is called 4th of July Cupcake and was just released for 4th of July. I just loved it and I though it would be perfect for a thank you card. I used Close To My Heart Art Philosophy for the 3 flags/banners on the left of the card. I used my CRICUT EXPLORE to cut all of the elements of this card. I absolutely love using my CRICUT EXPLORE and design space to visually create the entire card before cutting it out. For the frame behind the cupcake of the card I also used the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy.
I used the 4th of July Cupcake from PPBN Designs for the file. I used the cherry from Sweet Treats Cartridge. This is from the sundae and I had to use the count our option to hide certain parts of the sprinkles that I did not want. I than duplicate the cherry 6 times. I used Dewdrop Ink to ink my edges on the cherries on the cupcakes while using Daubers to apply the ink. For the top of the cupcake I used Red Pearl Pens for the outlines of the top of the cupcake. for the sparkle on the white part of the cupcake and the dot on the top cherry of the cupcake I used Crystal Stickles Glue. For the six cherries behind the cupcake I used White Pearl Pen for the white dot. I raised the cupcake up using 3D Foam Dots.
For the sentiment I used the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy for the 3 flag banners. I used the writing feature in Design space and my CRICUT EXPLORE. I love this feature and the Cricut Pen Set is amazing and as you can see makes amazing results. I used the writing feature to not only write the words but also to write the inner banner that you can see bordering the sentiments on the inside of the banner. For the outside of each of the flags I used Red Pearl Pens, Light Blue Pearl Pens and Bisque Liquid Pearl for the outside of the each of the flags and used 3D Foam Dots to raise the flags.
I just love how this card turned out and love the fact that I have such wonderful people in my life who have helped me out and given me a reason to make these amazing thank you cards. Thanks for coming by today to see my Kreation and come back tomorrow to see what other things I Kreate.
