Snowflakes and Ribbon

This week at the Fantabulous Cricut Blog the theme is Snow Fun! We are asked to use a snowflake or a snowman on our project. I decided to go with a snowflake and make a fun snowy card. 

For this card I used the Accent Essential Cricut Cartridge for my snowflake. I cut two of them out at 4 and 3 inches. I used a pop dot to pop up the smaller snowflake to give the card some dimension. I, also, popped up the sentiment as well. The sentiment was stamped and then I heat embossed it using silver embossing power and then for fun added some starry bling to the snowflakes on the pattern paper. Try a project with a snowman or snowflake and then upload it onto the Fantabulous Cricut Blog for your chance to win this weeks prize.


Made Especially for You is hosting a challenge this week that asks us to use three ribbons on our cards. This was actually a challenge for me! But, I had fun working through it and even got to use a new stamp that I got from the Unity Stamp Co.

The moment this stamp set came in the mail I had to use it. So, I decided to make it look like a piece of wall decor. I used a border punch around the stamp to decorate it up a bit. Then took a piece of ribbon and hung it from a screw brad. Just because I normally wouldn't, I decided to leave some ribbon hanging down from the sides. I added two ribbon borders on the side and then a thinner piece of burgundy ribbon down the center of the ribbon border. Simple card, but man did challenge me!
Now it's your turn, head on over to the Made Especially for You blog and link up your own ribbon project!
