"The CMA Music Festival turns 40 this year (it doesn't look a day over 23), and we want YOUR help to wish them a happy birthday!
From now through May 17th, we're looking for the very best Sugarland-themed birthday cards honoring the CMA Music Fest's 40th. The cards can be over-the-top crazy, or sleek and modern; they can look professional, or you can make yours with crayons and glitter glue. If you can dream it -- and take a picture of it -- you can do it! The only rule is that it has to somehow involve Sugarland, since you're helping us show them the love. Otherwise, the sky's the limit."
I tried to use my Cricut for this project but the Silhouette (SIL) made this so much easier since I needed to print and cut. I used the CMA Music Fest as my inspiration for the front of the card. I made it from scratch using back shapes and fonts. For the inside of the card, I used Sugarland as my inspiration. "Love" is from the flag Jennifer paints at their concerts. "Sugarland" is from their website. The heart with wings is an icon of Sugarland and also a tattoo Jennifer has on her right arm (but it is kind of hidden).
I have to admit, this project took me days to create. Mostly because of technical issues with my printer and I am still new to the SIL...the hardest part was getting 2011 CMA cut out with the border on it.
