Click here to go to challenge blog

This will be my final card I make as a member of the C.R.A.F.T. Design Team. It has been a fabulous 4.5 years and I will truly miss working with Jo and her wonderful team. The C.R.A.F.T. challenge this week is to distress our project. I used a SVG digital file simply called Ice Skate card delightful cut by Digital Delights by Louby Loo. I downloaded the project to Cricut Design Space and cut out the pieces. Before assembling the skate I distressed and inked each piece using the Tim Holtz distress blade tool and Distress ink. Vs using the circle holes for the skate, I opted to use my We R Memory Keeping Eyelet punch and used twine laces. I added a Merry tag by Kaisercraft.

The Design Team at CHNCC is looking for a card with a house or houses. I decided to make a huge card using my Cricut and an SVG file from My Scrap Chick called Village Card. You can make this card as big or small as you want. I went with 7 houses, switching them up using pre-textured cardstock and smooth cardstock. I used stickers to decorate the doors, and sentiment by Penny Black. The full card fits into a 8.5 x 11 inch envelop.

 This week’s Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge is seeing Bells. I decided to break out my Cricut machine and the Holly and Ivy cartridge. I resized the suggested image size so I could combine the wording and bells into one card. I used cardstock from my stash.
