Here is a Sneak Peek
Before I show you the card, I made, a little back story. When I lived in Illinois, I contributed to a small annual publication called the Lee Centenniel, which promoted community events. I was the sole cartoonist, and so loved trying to come up with funny captions . Last week , I thought about how much I missed doing that and wondered if I could still come up with one. So I decided to challenge myself , and create one for all of you, and put it on a simple card.
So today's blog is about prodding you to writing something on your card that is completely original and funny. OK, so maybe you will be the only one who thinks it is funny, and if that is the case, just keep it for yourself for kicks and giggles when you need a little boost.
And now for my caption:
And the image that goes with it:
I used the Imagine More cartridge for the cow and cut the bikini out of wired ribbon. It had a nice silver border, and I used this to "keep the bikini up" so there was no wardrobe malfunction.
I was going to design it on Cricut Craftroom, (Half circle, four cut elongated ovals) but decided to trace the cow and freehand it instead. I made little rosettes out of narrow folded ribbon. This is an A2 card and the backgrounds are paint cards I had left over from a project. Very easy to do.
I typed the caption at 16 and 18, wrapped the card in sheer ribbon , a bow and another rosette. I made it very simple as I wanted the caption to stand out the most.
Hope you did get a little chuckle out of this and will try a caption card yourself. If you have any questions, you can post in the comments and I will answer there, or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. It is so much fun creating for you and I am looking forward to July 7 for a very special share.
