Cut it Up – Winter

Brrr! Winter is on its way, and we at Cut it Up are ready to greet it with our winter-themed projects.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Oddball Art. I have two card projects to share with you using their products. The first card uses their Kawaii Big Eye Unicorn, which I colored with colored pencils. I created a winter scene for the unicorn. She looks like a baby to me, so I think I’ll be saving this card to celebrate the birth of the next baby girl born in winter.

I used a digital paper called Let it Snow Lt Blue from Snowy Overlay Papers that is saved on my computer. For the trees, cardinal, and squirrel, I used Forest Scene Builder Dies from Newton’s Nook and the Scallop Rectangle Dies are from Pink and Main.

My second project is a set of four note cards that I’ll be sending to my “penpals” in January. These are elderly friends and family members who love to receive little bits of news every month. They’re well aware by now of which seasons are my favorite and least favorite! They feature Oddball Art’s Big Eye Whimsical Christmas – Peggy Sue’s Winter Blues image.

I overlaid the sentiment from the Oddball Art image onto a photo of my back yard from 2018 and printed it onto card stock. I cut that out using My Favorite Things’ Elegant Reactangle Stax die. I brought Peggy Sue into Silhouette Design Studio and traced her. Then I used a .05 offset and cut her out. I glued three of them together to give her a little dimension on the cards.

And now you know how I feel about winter!
