Merry Christmas, everyone! Here are some cards (mainly snowflake cards) I made one weekend with my Cuttlebug and Cricut.
I bought the beautiful Trim the Tree Cricut cartridge with plans to make some beautiful cards. It tended to be rather frustrating because the intricate details turn out more successfully with a larger sized project. I tried a few different shapes and when I cut them at a small 2.75″ or 3″ size in height, the blade tore up my paper. This bell is so large that I can’t mail the card in the matching A-2 envelope. I’ll have to use a larger size. Unless I get into scrapbooking or decorating the house with paper shapes, I do not see myself using this cartridge. What a shame.
I added Stickles glitter glue to highlight parts of the elegant bell.
I dry-embossed red DCWV paper with my Cuttlebug and sanded / distressed the raised image to expose the white paper core. I used my new Sizzix Sizzlits Basic Grey snowflake die in my Cuttlebug to cut some cardstock snowflakes and enhanced them with a crystal rhinestone and Stickles glitter glue.
Here’s another interpretation of the card.
I finally used my delicate snowflake stickers! I had been intimidated by them because they are difficult to peel away without stretching. Now that I have some special adhesive paper designed to transfer these stickers, I can move them onto my project without tearing or warping the image. You can’t see it, but I outlined the teal DCWV brand paper with Stickles glitter glue.
I finally used a snowflake eyelet I’d had for over a year. I used another detailed snowflake sticker and embossed an image I stamped with a CTMH clear acrylic stamp.
I love this color combo!
I got bold and used a large silver foil snowflake sticker to make this simple card. I added a crystal rhinestone to the center for some added “bling.”
Here’s a difficult-to-photograph navy blue card with a metallic foil sticker and some freehand wisps of Stickles glitter glue. This card looks terrible in this photo!!
As always, thank you so much for reading my blog!
