Wintery Outdoor Fun
I have just been out in the garden cutting dead heads off the roses and the temperature is soaring towards 29 degrees, so I am not really in the mode of winter at the moment! [Ed: That is Celsius! It actually got to 31 degrees officially]
However, back to today's challenge.
I used three cartridges to make this card, Joys of the Season for the ice skate; Lyrical Letters for the words, and Cricut Craft Room Basics for the layers on the card.
I made the easel card and added the two layers for the pop-up bit. The ice skate has a shadow layer and I coloured the skate part with silver smooch ink. I also added some silver to the eyelets on the boot.
I cut a fancy tag using a spellbinders fancy tags die and inked it while it was still in the die to get the blue touches around the centre and at the sides of the tag. Stamped a sentiment from a Gina K set and mounted it on foam dots to provide a stop for the top fold.
Added some silver corners to finish it off.
Please pop over to the CWC blog and enter this week's challenge and do have a look at all the beautiful cards the other DT members have done. They are stunning!
