Hi everyone! This is the card I made for the weekly Cricut Circle challenge over on their blog. The challenge this week was to create a project with a winter theme using a snowflake cut, white paint and metal. We also had to use at least 2 Cricut cuts.
I used my Imagine to create with the Frosty Pattern cartridge.
The Cricut cartridges I used are:
Winter Lace - Snowflake: cut two at 2.9"
One shadow at 2.9"
Paper Lace - Scalloped square - cut at 3"
Square background - cut at 4.7 "
The card is 5" X 5", and I rounded the corners with a corner rounder.
I tied some linen thread (Stampin' Up) to a metal button and attached it to the center of the snowflake.
I ran the lower edge through the Cuttlebug using the Snowflakes embossing folder. I used a white paint dauber (Ranger) to paint the embossed backgound. Then I wiped over it with a paper towel.
Velvet ribbon was adhered along the upper edge of the embossing.
Pewter eyelets (Making Memories) were attached to each corner of the background piece.
For a final touch, "for you" (Stampin' Up) was stamped in the upper corner, then I inked around the edge of the card with the same ink (Bermuda Bay, SU!).
Hope you like it!
