Exploring Cricut - Challenge #7

Welcome to another fun challenge at Exploring Cricut. Today's assignment -

Think Winter Wonderland! Create a card, layout or papercraft creating a winter scene or activity

And my entry...



The cut is from Celebrate with Flourish. I cut two base pieces (silver cardstock) at 5.75 inches. I then placed my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder over one snowflake and dry embossed. I adhered the embossed layer on top of the other with dimensional foam for depth. I cut both skates out of white card stock and added them with dimensional foam as well. Then I grabbed some white and gray baker's twine and tied a fun "lace" for my top skate. The distressed designer paper is by October Afternoon (specifically their Farmhouse Collection) and the remaining paper is plain card stock. I added a few pieces of twine and Zva pearl flourishes before placing my assembled skates. I felt like this card needed some sort of sentiment so I pulled out my Warm Wishes set and stamped the sentiment with CTMH Grey Wool Ink. So fun and so cute! Be sure to hop over and check out what the rest of the Exploring Cricut Design team has for you. We are welcoming a couple of new ladies to the team, Annette Robertson and Melody Lane. Be sure to stop by and give all the girls some blog love! We appreciate your comments so very much!
