Creations by AR - January Blog Hop - Lovely Cart


Welcome to the January Creations by AR Design Team Blog Hop.  Look at this marvelously fun new template Adela has created -  Lovely Cart.  How Cute Is This?!
 Front View

Back View
Adela has 3 options for the wheel spokes -  standard spokes that I used here, hearts and a star.  I used a Filigree Brad from SU for the hub.
Close up of the canopy.
I layered same color panels onto the base - sponging all the edges before putting it together to give a little weathered look and dimension to the 'canvas' of the canopy.
I just happened to have the perfect stamp set to use with this wonderful cart -  Candy Wagon by Waltzingmouse. I used a Die-namic Sentiment Strip and a SU Sizzlits Lots of Tags Label 3 for the signs.
This wonderful treat cart measures 6" high x 4.88" long x 2.63" deep. Files come in both SVG (for cutting machines like Silhouette, that I used to cut mine)  and PDF (that you can print and hand cut)
Adela is also offering this sweet Valentine Card template - free!! with your purchase of Lovely Cart!
I made 4 of these cute little heart cards (they measure a sweet 2 1/2" x 4").  I used black and gray for the card bases and some two sided patterned papers - using one side on the front and the other side on the inside.
I drew xo around the banner with black on the top left one,  made dots with my white gell pen on the banner on the top left.  All the banners are popped up on foam dots.
 I drew black faux stitching on the banner below left and black dots on the banner below right.
The banner comes both plain and with the XOXO cut out on it.  I added a piece of gray cardstock behind the XOXO on the lef so it could be seen better..
 And here are the cards flipped open so you can see what I put on the inside.
Now for the fun part  -  You could win the Lovely Cart Template!
