Don't Blink!

This week's Exploring Cricut (and More) Design Team Inspiration: 



This is the second in a series of Doctor Who themed cards. Doctor Who is a science fiction British television show - lately it's lost some of it's science for some fairytale flair, but I don't care. To me, anything Doctor Who is OK.

This card was created entirely based on the episode, Blink, from season 3. Fans of the show, will pick out the carefully planned elements. For example, the background fence to represent the Wester Drumlins, a expanse of land with a large Victorian home and a wrought iron fence around it where the episode takes place. It is here that we first meet the Weeping Angels (the very scary monster from the episode). The familiar Doctor Who police box - his disguised time machine (TARDIS) cut from a .jpg in blue vinyl stands behind the lonely Weeping Angel cut from a .svg file (from Pretty Papers, Pretty Ribbons), finally, I added the TARDIS key and an Easter Egg - both crucial in the episode.

The background paper is from The Paper Studio: Blanco.

  3. My husband and kids are HUGE Dr. Who fans! (They will argue for hours over which doctor is the best.) What a fun idea to make some Dr. Who themed cards! So fun seeing the TARDIS on there!

  4. Cute card Faith. I've never watched Dr. Who so I'm totally lost on all of the meaning, but I do like your card. :)

  6. Oh, how fun. My son is really into Dr Who and I watched with him on a recent visit. I believe that is one of the episodes that we watched.
