Welcome to another fun challenge from Cut it Up Challenge Blog. The theme is Mardi Gras- Use a Masking Technique. How clever!
I made a group of S-fold cards for the people at work who have winter birthdays. These first two use cute images from the Teddy Bear Parade Cricut cartridge.
Do you see my masking technique? I punched several snowflakes on a piece of scrap paper using my Martha Stewart snowflake. I held that over my white card stock mats and sprayed teal Heidi Swapp color shine to make the snowflakes you see behind the little teddy bears. The mats themselves are from the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge. The paper is from a 6 x 6 Jack Frost paper pad by American Crafts.
I made about ten cards altogether, but didn’t want to do all that paper piecing with the teddies, so for the rest of them I used a simple die cut snowflake, just two layers.
I was happy to use that paper and get a lot of cards done quickly. On the inside, I used So Many Birthdays by Jaded Blossom with Not Quite Navy Classic Ink from Stampin’ Up.
