Welcome to Day 1 of the All About the Green Blog Hop being brought to you by our fabulous hostess Kathryn from Creations with Kathryn! I am excited to be participating in another blog hop with my pink flamingo sisters! A big thank you goes out to Kathryn for inviting me to join! If you have arrived here from Leah's blog then you are in the right place! If you just happened to stop by my blog and would like to start at the beginning of the hop then please go to Kathryn's blog. Now on with the show!
Kathryn gave us a lot of leniency on our projects...they could be eco green, or the color green or St. Patrick's Day themed! I did two different cards for this hop. Today's card will be featuring my take on an eco green project and the card tomorrow will be for St. Patrick's Day!
I love the meaning behind the Pixar movie Wall-E. The movie is set somewhere in the ballpark of 800 years in the future and shows what happens to the planet when it isn't taken care of and becomes covered in trash. Basically the entire human popluation leaves the planet and the only things left behind are the trash compacting robots who are expected to clean everything up. The robot with a heart in this movie is Wall-E and one day while collecting various pieces of treasure and keepsakes he discovers a seedling growing among the trash and brings it to home with him. As soon as I saw this cut on the Best of Pixar cartridge I knew I had to make something with it. So today I share with you my take on the eco side of All About the Green!
Wall-E was cut from the Best of Pixar Cricut cartridge at 4 1/2". I used Core'dinations and Colorbok pearlescent paper to cut and piece together Wall-E. The plain background paper on the card is my new found love Kraft paper from Recollections and the bottom half of the patterned cardstock is from the DCWV Spring Glitter Stack. The "Celebrate" ribbon slide is by Making Memories and is on Offray ribbon. "Life" was a stick pin embellishment by Craft Essentials that I cut the pin part off of and simply glued it onto the paper. I used some pop dots behind Wall-E to give the card a nice dimensional look. I have to say that this is one of my favorite cards I've made. Wall-E is so darn cute!
