You Make My Heart Race!

Happy Friday the 13th! I hope you have lots of GOOD luck and wonderful times today! Today I am here to share a card I made for my hubby using Father's Day Seasonal Cricut cart that sent me. The inside reads, "You still make my (insert heart shape here) RACE!!!) hence the title of the post LOL! Did you know that is now carrying the SEW EASY!?! WOOHOO! Oh and the free shipping over 25.00 yes that still ROCKS! So let's get started!

You will need the following items to make this card, substitute as you see fit of course.

Father's Day Seasonal
Going Places
Signo white pen
Colorbox Dark brown cat's eye
French blue ink
black pen
chipboard sun with orange and yellow ink applied
Kraft, white, green, black, blue card stock scraps
tiny heart punch

1. Using Father's Day and the Cricut of your choice cut the speedboat at 2.5 inches in black. Cut the layer at the same size in green. Back with white card stock inked in green.

2. Embellish boat with white pen, black pen and ink.

3. Using Going Places cut the waves (water) (page 48 button 24) at FIT TO LENGTH of 5.25 inches out of blue card stock. I think it ended up being around 2 inches or less?

4. Embellish with Signo white pen and tuck punched hearts in waves randomly.

5. Hand draw or stamp clouds, outline in white pen, color or stamp in blue.

6. Adhere everything at desired position using ATG, Zig and mini glue dots.

7. Attach the chipboard sun using mini glue dots.

8. For the inside I simple cut two rectangles from scraps to nestle into one another and rounded the corners. Ink edges and use a pop up dot to give dimension to the heart. The inside reads, " You still make my (heart) RACE!"

9. Ink outer edges of all card sides.
