Sizzling B-B-Que Card -Fantabulous Cricut Challenge

We're barbecuing over at Fantabulous Cricut ... well the projects are sizzling anyway and it's time for another Challenge Me Monday.

Challenge #21
Summer B-B-Que
Create a project and incorporating b-b-q summer food /cooking

I used three Cricut cartridges for my card,George and Basic Shapes for the lettering, and From my Kitchen for the grill on pg. 41 of the handbook, the spatula is on page44 and page 55 is the fork I used (I show how I made a two pronged fork below). Then Everyday Paper Dolls for the grass on page 77 (accessories 2).

I used the regular fork and cut off two of the prongs as shown below. For the handles, I cut each of the utensils out of brown cardstock, then cut off the utensil part.

I also added brown ink to the edges of the handles, the fork did not have a hole so I made one with a piercing tool then added red twine.

Come see the sizzling Fantabulous Cricut design team projects -HERE.
Enjoy the rest of your Summer!
