Tic Tac Toe Challenge & Cricut 360 DT Call

This card is doing double-duty ... I'm submitting it for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge on the Cricut Circle blog and also for the Cricut 360 design team call.

For the challenge, there is a Tic Tac Toe board with a design element in each of the squares. You get to choose a row and then incorporate the three elements in your project. I chose the bottom row ... use a flower shape cut, use a Cuttlebug embossing folder, and use the Imagine for your patterned paper. 

For the design team call, the requirements are to create a layout or card using lime green and a bug. Click here to find out more about this new challenge blog.


All the images were printed and cut with my Imagine, using the Blast Off cartridge. The flower pot is from Kate's ABCs, the flowers and leaves are from Mother's Day Bouquet, the butterfly is from Ashlyn's Alphabet, and the mat is one of the stock shapes from the Imagine.


For the butterfly, I printed a pattern on cardstock for the the base and then printed a solid color on vellum for the wings. I attached just the 'body' of the vellum layer to the base to create a little dimension.


I embossed the leaves with the D'Vine Swirl Cuttlebug folder and spritzed the flowers and leaves with Pearl Glimmer mist.

I love how bright and cheerful this is ... hope you like it, too!



Thanks for stopping by ...
