Caardvarks: Shortcuts!

It's challenge day at Caardvarks! This challenge is sponsored by ShortCuts. Launched in June of 2008, the sister site to SheetLoad of Cards, is dedicated making your papercrafting quicker and easier. Everybody likes a short cut every now and then!

THE CHALLENGE: Create a card based upon this sketch, by ShortCuts. Entries must be linked to us via Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post by July 17th at Midnight PST. Please link us **directly** to your blog post, not your blog address.

THE PRIZE: Two (2) lucky winners this week will each receive a $15 ShortCuts Gift Certificate!!

SHOPPING DISCOUNT: Want to try ShortCuts for yourself, while saving money at the same time? Just visit their Online Store and enter the discount code “Caard15” during checkout and receive 15% off your order! *15% will be taken off package price(s) only, not S/H charges. Orders must contain at least $5.00 in product, and be placed before July 31, 2009.

Here's the card I made using the Shortcuts sketch. It uses a frosted card blank as a base. I cut a window in the front panel of the cart and used a piece of clear acetate to fill it in. The rest is lovely Bo Bunny papers, Prima flowers, a 7 Gypsies rub on and some help from my Cricut. You can check out my other Crew cards in the 'Varks gallery.

Be sure to check out the full gallery of Shortcuts/Sheetloads projects made by the Caardvarks Crew. For our Caards & More projects this time around you are being treated to a travel game board by Carrie, a feminine gift bag by Pam and a dry erase calendar board by Mel.

So clearly, this challenge is worth trying. *wink wink* GOOD LUCK!

This card is just so soft and feminine. The frosted acetate with those papers and the card design is **cough** **cough** SHEER perfection! :)
