Cut it Up – Breast Cancer Awareness in 3D

CIU challenge blogWe’re getting ready for Breast Cancer Awareness month at Cut it Up Challenges this time around.  We’re promoting awareness of a new technology, 3D mammography.  Someone we know and love was diagnosed with breast cancer through the use of 3D mammography, and so the challenge is to include a 3D element on your project.  I chose to make a 3D project — three of them, in fact!



I used paper from Mambi sheets breast cancer pack to make these cute purses.  The file is on page 41 of the Artiste Cricut cartridge.  I used both layers of the 3D object.  The tag is from the Autumn Celebrations cartridge on page 54 using the tag, tag shift, base image and shift, and layer 2 shift (shadow.)  To make that tiny paper flower, I used a tiny $1 Recollections punch!


The prize this week is a $20 gift card from As Cute as a Button!  Go look at all the beautiful pink projects over at Cut it Up and then link up your own!  I hope to see your project there!
