Cricut 360° Blog Challenge #15 ... Think Winter



Hello everyone, are you ready for another challange from the Cricut 360° Challenge Blog? This week we're doing 'white-on-white' projects.


For my card, I started with a 5.5" x 5.5" base then added a layer embossed with the Snow Burst embossing folder. To highlight the embossing, I rubbed on a little White Frost shimmer paint. Both the embossing folder and the shimmer paint are from Stampin' Up. Then I tied on some white tulle and satin ribbon. The skates are from the Winter Woodland Cricut cartridge ... cut a 3.25". I sprinkled the blades with Martha Stewart coarse glitter, swiped more of the shimmer paint on the boots and finished them with some pearls and embroidery thread. It still looked a little plain, so I added the ribbon and snowflake charm. All in all, I'm pleased with this one, even though it didn't photograph very well ... it's one of those that looks better 'in real life'.

Now, here's a second card. Actually, I made this card first ... then I re-read the challenge requirements and realized that there isn't supposed to be any 'color' in the project. For this card I used a kraft base, inked all the edges with Tim Holtz Brushed Corduroy distress ink and used a kraft/white bakers twine for the laces. The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper's Winter Punnies set.

I like that you can get two very different cards using the same basic elements!!


So, now it's your turn. Link your project at the Cricut 360°Challenge Blog.  ... I'd love to see your project!!

Thanks for stopping by ...
