Door Card- Exploring Cricut

Hi everyone. Today is our Monday challenge over at Exploring Cricut. I wanted to share a card I made. It measures 4x8. Base is Kraft card stock using black for the frame and red and white for the scallop. The inside door panel is grey from DCWV. I didn't have a door cut so I created one in CCR. I used the basic cuts available to everyone with CCR. Stamps are from Emma over at MCT.

Thanks for looking. Have a great day everyone and happy crafting!

"Maid"- Summer in Paris

Hello everyone. Today is my project day over at Exploring Cricut. Thanks so much for visiting.

So I made this card using the Summer in Paris cartridge. I love this shape. She is supposed to be a French maid holding a duster, but I think it looks like she could be holding flowers too so that's what I'm going to say she's doing. Lol!

Card is standard A2 size. Shape cut at 3.5 inches. I cut the shape 3 times. First cut the blackout of the shape twice. Then hit shift and cut the intricate shape.
I used the first blackout as my base. Then adhered the intricate cut with dimensionals onto the blackout. For the other blackout cut, I cut the head, legs, feet, arms and flower out and adhered to the intricate cut leaving the design showing exactly what parts I wanted to highlight.

Layer is embossed with swirl cuttlebug folder. Ribbon is from stash.

Thanks for looking and have a great day. Happy crafting!!!

Winter Wonderland Box

Today's project is for Exploring Cricut Challenge Monday. Today's theme is winter wonderland. Make any paper craft, card etc. using a winter theme.

I decided to make a gift box or you can use it for whatever you like.

The box measures about 4x4. I used TBB&M, George and Basic Shapes and Accent Essentials.

For the box, I just made it 12 inches in width. The circle cut out was from George and basic shapes. I just welded the circle onto the box so that it would cut it out. The snowflakes come from accent essentials. I glued them to the box just using some zig 2 way and twine.

I hope you like todays project. Have a great day and happy crafting!
