This week at Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge we are looking for a snowflake or two. I love the little popup box card. I used the rounded edge box card by Simply Crafty SVGs. I added snowflake die cuts by various companies, plus a snowman by Marianne Designs,
I look before to seeing everyone’s cool Snowflakes!
This week’s the 52CCT challenge
is to make a Popup card. There are numerous types of popup cards, but I chose to make a box card. I used my Cricut and the basic rounded edge box card by Simply Crafty SVGs. (Note: If you Google box card template there are a number of sites with free downloads and instructions), I started by creating the bo, then I filled it with a Santa, embellishments from my stash, and snowflakes diecuts. The Santa is by Marianne Designs, snowflakes by Penny Black and SSS, Mittens by Memory Box.

This month the Simply Create Too Design Team Challenge is to make a Card using Diecuts. I love die cuts. I have invested a little fortune in dies and don’t use them nearly enough. I have made two different cards using dies and papers from my stash. The only ink I used was on the sentiments.
Card 1 – I just received a shipment of dies, stamps, and embossing folders from Darlene at Dutch Paper Crafts so I had to make a couple of cards for this month’s challenge. I used papers from my paper hard, my Tim Holtz Vagabond Die Machine. The sentiment is from SSS. The adorable Zebra is by Marianne Designs - COL1447 Zebra/Donkey Die Set. The Embossing folder/die is from DF3444 Anja’s Flower Border Embossing Folder with matching Dies (I used the die upside down on the embossed background and cut it down to fit an A2 card).
Card 2 – This card uses die from Memory Box – UNDERWATER COLLAGE Craft Die 99742 and SEAWEED COLLAGE Craft Die 99727, plus Marianne Designs – Elines Tropical fish seahorse col1431. The sentiment is by SSS. Note: I popped everything up using dimensional foam tape to create a 3-D effect.
Our challenge runs through the month of April (4/6 to 4/27). I look forward to seeing your creations.
For the CRAFT Challenge 261, we are looking for a Shaped Card. I used a SVG file from The Cutting Cafe and my Cricut Explore Air called Teacup Card Set. This set includes 2 different teapot designs, plus envelopes. If you don’t own a Silhouette, Cricut, Brother cutting machine, no worries because the Cutting Cafe also includes the template pattern that allows you to manual cut out the card. I also added a flower I created using one of my dies from Marianne Designs, The sentiment id from SSS.
