Christmas - um, really??? I'm still sorting out summer - so thinking about Christmas was entirely too hard for me. But, Fantabulous Cricut challenge was to make a Christmas card. I decided to give it a whirl and came up with this little card. I love Christmas really and I love blue, silver and white. Most of my Christmas decorations are those colors and I think they look beautiful together. So I decided to go with that for this card. I wanted something that said cold since weather out there has been so hot.
I used Winter Woodland cartridge for this card. I used the snowflake on the scalloped square background. I cut just the scallop with the snowflake by hiding it on my Gypsy . I then welded the word snowy (shadow) to the shadow of the snowflake. I cut out a snowflake in a swirly white paper, and the word snowy in the same. I then took my cuttlebug and cut three sizzix snowflakes in a light blue. First, I adhered the blue scallop to a white card. I added the blue snowflakes next. I popped the word snowy welded to the snowflake. Then I took the extra snowflake I cut and used my nestables to cut a circle in the middle. I tied fishing line to a snowflake brad (I took the brad part off) I got and then hot glued it to the edge of the circle so that the snowflake looks like it's suspended in the circle. I then popped that snowflake up off the paper.
I like the effect, but if I had it to do over again, I would have three snowflakes popped up from the layer below. This would make that snowflake embellishment really look suspended.
Thanks for looking!
