Okay, I know I said I was tired of red (and I am), but I had to do one more! Ever since Dustin released this guy I wanted to use him. Seriously, how do you begin to make a card for this? He needs a big hug! So when I saw that More Than Favors - Cricut Cartridge Chaos Challenge was using the Rock Princess cartridge I knew he would finally be rescued! Then of course, I had to see what The Cuttlebug Spot challenge is this week. Their challenge is to make a gate fold card. Hmm...I've never created a gate fold card, never used my Rock Princess cartridge (I know...shocker, right?), Mr. Skunk has been waiting and it only seemed logical that a broken heart needed two sided card. Perfect match for all three! And instead of a smooth heart, I used my embossing folder to give the hearts a broken texture.
Yesterday, I grounded myself from going to the scrapbook store. I really, really wanted some type of black patterned paper for this card. Thankfully, it was super windy and stormy which lowered my motivation (to zero) to go outside. I have so much paper that I could open my own store! Yet somehow I needed NEW paper. You know the drill. One day when my office is clean (yeah that's not today), I'll post pictures of my room. It's crazy how much money is sitting/hanging in here waiting to be used. Anyway, I forced myself to find something to use here in my collection. Not doubt...I found a great selection in one of my DCWV stacks. I really need to learn control! :)
Good news! I also entered this card into the Cricut Circle Weekly contest (project must include a heart and embossing. Project must have at least 2 Cricut cuts to qualify). Anytime I can use a Doodle Dragon Studios image, my Cricut and my Cuttlebug on one project my day is more complete!
