I made a Winter Wishes card for the Friday, 1-07-11, challenge.
The Circle Blog challenge was as follows:
Brrrr! Winter is in full swing over many parts of the country . . . but even if it is warm where you are, you can use Winter-inspired elements to fuel your creative juices on your next Cricut project. We challenge you to incorporate white paint, metal, and a snowflake cut on your project this week.
Project must be newly created for this challenge and must include atleast 2 different cuts from any Cricut cartridge to qualify.
I used Jolly Holidays Lite cartridge to cut the cute little penguin and the phrase, I used Accent Essentials to cut the snowflakes. I used white paint on the blue snowflakes and dusted the umbrella with white paint also. I then drew white snow banks using the Snow Writer Paint pen. For the metal, I used a small paper clip to make the handle on the umbrella and used white brads to make a pile of snowballs.
