Fun, fun, fun! The challenge this time on Cut it Up Challenge Blog is to use something you got for the holidays. I really made out this Christmas. I got three new Cricut cartridges – Teddy Bear Parade and Create a Critter 2 (both of which were on my wish list) and a surprise – Simply Charmed! I also got some paper pads and a corner chomper. I chose to use the Teddy Bear Parade cartridge for this challenge.
I used the card feature from Winter Woodland to make this card. For the frame, I just used one square inside another so that the outer square was the same size as the card and the inner square was the same size as the window. I stamped the frame with an old snowflake stamp and some white ink. I popped the teddy bear using Recollections dimensional squares. This particular teddy bear had a sled, and I did cut it out, but I didn’t like it so I threw it away. Here is the inside:
I started by filling up my 12 x 24 inch mat with 3 inch bears. I also made 9 green bears and 9 yellow bears for another project (which I’ll show you soon.) I love making multiples of everything I cut just to have something on hand for a quick project. I gussied them up just a bit (because those vacant eyes really creep me out!)
Now I have about 25 naked 3 inch bears just waiting to be dressed! I took five of them and dressed them in a nice winter coat. Three of them are girls (eyelashes added) and two are boys (no eyelashes.)
I hope you break in your new craft goodies and join us in this challenge at Cut it Up. Don’t forget to use a die cut.
Here is the prize that will go to one random entrant! Have fun and good luck!
