Carousel Horse Card for Doodle Pantry August Release

August in our family means birthday parties for three of our youngest grandchildren, two boys and a girl. Today's card is for a granddaughter who loves My Little Pony. The new Carousel Horse 6 set of digi images is the perfect one for her card.

First, I flipped the images in Photoshop and fussy cut them. The top half of the card has music embossed because I always associate carousels with their own unique style of music. I used the green patterned paper from the set to ground the images. I used the CTMH Cricut Artiste cartridge to cut out the two carousel pieces from matching cardstock sized at 5.5 inches. I added Glitz Glitter glue to the top and blue and purple sparkles. (This girl LOVES Purple!) The top flag was perfect for holding the sentiment.I let it go beyond the 5 inch height of the card so I'll put it in a 6" x 6" envelope.
Check out Laurie's other Carousel images. I'm planning to make an entire set with these images.

This is the perfect time to get these images.
