An encouragement card featuring the spigot from the Southwest cartridge, "Never Give Up," phrase from the Wall Decor & More cartridge and a frame from the Fabulous Finds cartridge around an inspirational quote from the Roman poet, Ovid, about persistence. When I told my husband that there are some talented crafters entering this contest, he said, "Persistence, Baby! Never give up!"

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Black Silver White & Blue Card Stock
  • Small Silver Brads
  • Silver Stickles Glitter
  • Printer for inspirational quote

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

I began with a 5.5 x 4 inch card base. I added two mats to the card base. The bottom mat in black was cut at 5.25" x 3.75 and the blue mat was cut at 5 x 3.25
I cut the spigot in silver and shadow spigot in black from the Southwest cartridge at 2.5". To accentuate the water droplet coming out of the spigot, I added silver stickles to it. I cut the "Never Give Up" phrase at 1.5 in black with shadow cut in white. I cut the frame for the inspirational quote at 1.25".
I printed the quote on white card stock in Microsoft Word using the Monotype Corsiva font at font size of 18 and the name of the poet with font size 13, then I adhered the Fabulous Finds frame to the quote and added silver brads.
