This week my challenge is:
Weekly Challenge #6: Feathered Friends Challenge
The birds are flying south for the winter and we’re heading inside to ”feather” our own nests in preparation for the cooler months ahead. This challenge is in honor of the birds! Create a project of your choice using a minimum of 2 different Cricut Cuts. Your project must also include a bird of some kind and stitching (machine stitching, hand stitching, or both).
Project must be newly created for this challenge and must include atleast 2 different cuts from any Cricut cartridge to qualify. This challenge is open to Cricut Circle Members only.
So Birds and stitching was the challenge. Here I used Cricut Imagine Snow Angel Cart to print out the background blue snow flake paper. I used the new feature that allows you to print entire 12 x12 sheets. Paper used was While Bassil. Then I took 3 pieces of white and used an EK success punch that looked like hills as the snow, I love the little holes on this punch. I used a decorative stitch in blue to sew the layes of "hills" together. I used Christmas Noel for the trees. I have a white Base and then used the cricut imagine to cut out the trees, I used Snow Angel Cart one of the pattern papers to fill in the lacey trees. I mounted them to the card using foam tape to give them some dimension. The biggest challenge for this card was finding the bird. After several tries with different birds, I went to Animal Kingdom. I used the shadow feature on he cart to do the bird. Layer one was done on the Cricut Imagine and I flooded the shape with black then used the flip feature on the cricut imagine to flip the image. I did the top layer of the bird in the red pattern paper on Snow Angels. To give the bird some fun, I put a jewel as an eye. In the sky to add some fun to the snowflakes I used Jolee Boutique little snow flakes. Please leave me a comment.
