Happy Friday! We have a new challenge at Cut It Up Challenges today and this week's challenge #10 is "In with the New".
I did not get any new crafty items(surprisingly) this Christmas. The closest thing I got to crafty is a new camera which allows me to take photos for layouts....so I used a new cartridge I bought in November but hadn't used yet.
The cartridge I used is Pirates and Mermaids and I just made a generic, fun card that I can use to just send out to just say hi to someone and catch up with them.
I cut out two of the seaweeds(4 layers of color on them) and then the seashell(3 layers of color) and my mermaid. This is an A2 card on blue cardstock and then I laid down a green mat that is slightly patterned(looks like wood grain but thought it could work for seeweed even though you can't see it much), and then a textured blue paper for the water. I put my seashell down first and then my seaweed and my mermaid on top. Then, I really had fun by adding various sizes of pearls(3 sizes) for the bubbles and I really love how it turned out and I love her pop of red hair also. On the inside I might put something like, "Swimming by just to say hi".
There you have it! Make sure to stop by Cut It Up Challenges to check out the other DT's creations and link up your project. Must use something new or you haven't used yet AND a die-cut! Have fun!
