Challenge #308 ~ Vacations

The FCCB Design Team is sponsoring a $25 gift card to


To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and let us know which cartridge(s) you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

If your entry isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!


My vacation themed card was inspired by cruises. It's been insane this summer with the number of people in my life who are going on cruises.... Mexico, Hawaii, Alaska, Disney, and more! I thought the ombre background had a kind of watery effect and then the other elements were just fun, loud, sparkly, happy, flowery, and bright.... just like a cruise. I've only been on one but it certainly was all of those things! Afterwards I noticed that the card size is perfect for boarding passes or airline tickets, so there's an added bonus I didn't even plan.... love it when that happens!

  1. I like how the letter is cut with that shadow background - add those tickets and send them to me - I am ready for a vacation! hehehhehe - thanks for sharing your lovely work and have a blessed week

  2. I love to cruise, Diana. Your card is lovely. The embossing and flowered letters make for a great design.

  3. This is a really fun card! I love the rhinestones! Isn't it fun when we discover something special about our own creations that we didn't even think about!
