What a fun challenge!! The theme this time at Cut it Up Challenge Blog is entitled Through the Woods. The first thing I thought of when I read that was “Over the river and through the woods to Grandmother’s house we go.” Then I got this adorable Red Riding Hood from Miss Kate’s Cuttables, and I knew just what to do!
I brought the svg into the Silhouette Design Studio, made an offset of her and welded her to a rectangle to make the base of my card. Because the details on the face are so tiny, I decided to print and cut the body and face.
The tree silhouettes were a freebie from SVGcuts.com, still available here.
I wanted the background to look dark and mottled. This is how I did it:
First, I masked off the Red Riding hood on my card. Then I smeared distress ink onto wax paper and squirted it with water. I pressed the card onto the ink a few times until it was covered nicely, then removed the masking tape:
We’re being sponsored by Scrappy Moms this time. The winner gets a stamp set of her choice!
So, what does the theme “Through the Woods” mean? You can use a wood grain embossing folder, wood grain papers, tree die cuts, woodland creatures, a log fire, anything that “wood” evokes. You should head on over to Cut it Up to see all the cool things the other ladies thought of!! Then put your thinking cap on and link up a project of your own.
Have fun with it! I did!!
