FCCB #242 - Winter Fun

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!



Challenge #242-Winter Fun

This Weeks Sponsor
Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons
~This Weeks Challenge~
Winter Fun! Make a project showing fun things to do in winter.

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.

I created a belated Christmas Card for this challenge!  I thought the cute little penguin with the tree in the Christmas Car SVG file from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons totally embraced the Winter Fun Theme!


I hope you can play along with us this week at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog!

Details:
  1. Open the SVG file in Cricut Design Space and cut all cutting files at the original size from the different patterned paper pieces.
  2. Cut an extra car base from white cardstock to use for the card base.
  3. Cut an extra Tree layer to create a dimensional tree.
  4. Using the Create a Friend Cricut Cartridge, cut from yellow patterned paper 2 stars at 1” and cut 4 stars at ½”.
  5. Score down the extra green tree layer and glue to give dimension to the tree – add the stars and sequins with glue.
  6. Glue all the pieces together to create the card.
