Two challenges this week call for shaped cards so I put on my thnking cap and this is what I came up with. I'm very happy with it.
This cute little bird has lots of stability because I used the shadow cutout, made from a manila folder, for both the front and back. Then I added the snow to stand in on the front. The green scarf was embossed with the dotted swiss pattern, although the photo doesn't show it. The bird, of course, is from the 3 Birds on Parade cricut cartridge; the snow is found on the last page of the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge.
I am entering this in the following challenges that both asked for shaped cards:
Fantabulous Cricut Challenges
My Craft Spot
I am also entering it in Exploring Cricut for the theme 'It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year'.
Please stop by these sites to see their DT projects and challenge entries.
Happy holidays, everyone.
