Love is in the Air
I love this post-Christmas, pre-Valentines Day time of wintery crafts, snowy days and crisp air. I thought I would take the opportunity to make a wintery all purpose card.
I used the following Cricut Cartridges:
Snow Globe from Doodle Charms
Girl from Winter Frolic
Lace Doily (makes the scalloped border) from Cindy Loo
I like to personalize the cuts offered on my Cricut so on the Girl you will notice I added fringed bangs and changed the ornament in her hand to a mini "love" card. The little girl also has eyes made from a heart cut in half with a tiny circle placed on each eye (I thought these were a bit cuter than the original eye cuts). I added a heart to her Peter Pan Collar, an extra row of ruffles around her coat bottom, and cuffs to her gloves and boots. These cuffs were further embellished with dimensional paint from Viva Decor. She also got a cute pair of earrings to style her up.
The snow globe background is dry embossed with the Cuttlebug snowflakes folder and the patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye. The rub-on, eyelets, and buttons were from my stash.
Thanks for looking,
