Noah's Ark

Click on any picture to enlarge.

Adam is one of my Facebook friends because he and his wife took Madison's wedding pictures.... he saw my "Every Light in the House is On" mushroom card yesterday on Facebook and he asked me to make a birthday card for his wife... he lives a little more than an hour away and I explained to him that because I mail them in a bubble envelope they take longer to arrive than a day, he was willing to drive the hour or more  to pick up my card.... was that a compliment or what!!!.... so I got to work designing on my Gypsy last night...and the card came together so good this morning...I am just so excited about this card.... hope that Adam and his wife are happy with it!!... thank you so much for looking!!... Hugs, Jeannie
Life is a Beach
Waves cut @ w 2.74 x h 1.0...I overlapped 3 of these to get the length I needed grouped them and welded them together....I place a rectangle on the screen the size of my card base to measure this by.... on the Cricut I would cut these @ 1 inch.
For the second row of waves duplicate these waves and weld to a rectangle from George cut @
 w 5.17 x h 0.83... on the Cricut I would cut three waves and hand cut the rectangle at a little large than 3/4 and inch by 3 1/2 inches and glue a row of overlapping waves to this.
Paper Dolls for Every Day
Basket for bottom of boat cut @ w 3.50 x h 8.07.... I put two of these on my mat...cut on by itself..which I cut the handle off of and popped from the welded boat...the other boat I welded at square and a rectangle to it to make the house...on the Cricut I would cut the basket at 3 inches on real dial size...I would leave the handle on one of the baskets to glue the square and triangle to.
Elephant cut @ w 1.83 x h 1.68...I glued one giraffe to the back of the "tub"of the boat which is popped from the whole boat....the other I glued to the whole boat...this gave a space between each animal for dimension...on the Cricut I would cut these @ 1 3/4 inches.
Fish cut @ w 0.87 c h will only need 5 ...I glued 3 to the back of the front waves which are popped form the back waves... on the Cricut I would cut these at 1 inch.
New Arrival
Giraffes and their layers cut @ w 1.12 x h 2.46 ... I glued one giraffe to the back of the "tub"of the boat which is popped from the whole boat....the other I glued to the whole boat...this gave a space between each animal for dimension.... on the Cricut I would cute these at 2 1/2 inches.
Beyond Birthdays
Doves cut @ w 1.83 x h 1.68 inches....on the Cricut I would cut these @ 1 1/2 inches.
Doodle Charms
Sun cut @ w 2.11 x h 1.71 ...on the Cricut I would cut this @ 1 3/4 inches.
"Happy Birthday" cut @ w 2.64 x h 1.32...on the Cricut I would cut this at 1 1/4 inches.
House on Boat
Square cut @ w 1.31 x h 1.50...using the Cricut I would cut this by hand at 1 1/3 inches x 1 1/2 inches.
Triangle cut @ w 1.94 x h 1 inch...using the Cricut I would cut this by hand  1 inch tall and 2 inches wide.
Rectangles 2 cut @ w 0.19 x h 1.58 ... rotate these and weld together to make the roof line... duplicate...then weld one set to the top of the roof...and cut one set separate so you can use a different paper for contrast... using the Cricut I would cut this by hand... and cut only one and glue to your roof.
All cut in red on the mat are welded together.

Oh Jeannie,
You seem to always outdo yourself with each passing card. I have a musical box that is 3D and it's Noah's ark. Love love love this card. Michaelangelo has the sistine have this card. For someone to come and drive an hour to pick up one of your cards is definitely a great compliment and after seeing this I am sure that they would think so too =)
Great job!

First thing I do when I get on my computer each morning is to check for new cards on your blog! : ) I think that is an honor for him to drive an hour for your card also-you should be proud! : )
