Click here to go to challenge blog

Here we are at the last challenge of the year and as the last challenge, we are running it for the next 3 weeks. The final challenge is totally open and anything goes. I made an adorable little “Woof” dog card (SVG) designed by The Cutting Cafe.

I used the SVG cut file from The Cutting Cafe and my Cricut Air Explore machine to make the card. I cut various dog themed papers from my stash, plus to stamped dogs to decorate.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 481 – 6th of September – Shaker Card

Click here to go to challenge blog

For this week’s Challenge at C.R.A.F.T., we are looking for a shaker card. I went a little overboard and created a Treat Cup card and filled it with candies that “shake”. The template SVG files are from The Cutting Cafe: Halloween Treat Cup Cards. There are three fabulous card designs: spider, pumpkin and ghost. If you don’t have a cutting machine, they also include a PDF that you can print a cut out by hand. I simply followed the directions, using my Cricut Explore Air, papers from my stash, candy and a little paint and viola! The card even comes with a special envelop box.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – Challenge 53CCT 37-18

DT Badge

The 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge this week is to make a pop-up or cube card. You can find many videos/templates on YouTube, Pinterest and other search sites. You can also buy dies and svg files to easily make these cards. Since I own a Cricut Explore Air, I simply popped in my All Occasions Box Cards Cartridge and made a card that easily fits into an A2 size envelope. After I cut out the files, I assembled the card and added a couple of glitter stars, and Sue Wilson’s Creative Expressions Festive Collection Let It Snow Die.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – Stash Challenge – Lace

DT Badge

This week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, our challenge is to use lace on our Christmas Card. Well, I have been hearing a lot about these new “Bow” cards and decided to check them out. Wow! they are simply gorgeous. Just Google bow cards for YouTube videos and numerous beautiful examples. I purchased the template from sandrasscrapshop.blogspot.nl *. I also received written permission from Sandra to make and display my card on the 52CCT website. She sent me the bow card template as a PDF file that allows you to use scissors and a SVG file that you can use the various cutting machines. I used my Cricut. *Please note: there are numerous fabulous projects available to purchase at Sandra’s Scrap Shop. I used various Christmas papers, lace, gems, snowflake buttons from my stash to create my Christmas bow card. I used a heavy cardstock to make the actual card attached to the back of the bow, but I think I will also attach a small loop so the person receiving the card can also hang it as a decoration. I hope you like my first attempt. I will be making more!

This week at Craftyhazelnut’s Christmas Challenge, we are looking for this famous Christmas sweet treat, the Candy Cane. I had my Cricut out so I decided to make a Christmas card using the Teddy Bears on Parade cartridge. I added a small candy cane from another cartridge and the little Santa’s helper is holding a gift and a candy cane.
