2017-01-19; Winter challenge with Graphically Speaking


Today’s design used the Cricut cartridge Graphically Speaking. This is one of “those” cartridges where I bought it thinking I would use it and then really didn’t. I still had the original packaging and had to peal off the sticker to use the cartridge. I pulled it out though so that’s what counts.

I used it for the snowflakes so I could join in the challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2 this week – Winter.

The tiny sentiment is by TAC – The Angel Company. I used a SU punch to punch it out. You can see that I added glitter to the snowflake. I used a paint brush and just spread the glue around.

My sewing machine is still open so I put some detailed decorative sewing on the edge of the mats. To make the snowflake I cut about 12 of the snowflakes in 4″ and some in 3-3/4″, stacked and glued together for strength. When adding it to the card front I only glued the center so the layers would float wherever they may.

The size of this card is 5″ square so I’ll be hunting for a bigger envelope!

This design was entered into the challenge at BBTB2 – Snow Much Fun!

    So pretty-love the glitter you added to the snowflake! It took me awhile to warm up to Graphically Speaking, but I actually use it fairly often now. It takes some thinking outside the box to make use of some the images! Glad you joined our snow much fun challenge this week at BBTB2!
