Use the chart below and combine three elements in a row-tic tac toe style on the project and include 2 Cricut cuts.
I created a card with the middle row across ric rac, ruffle, and bird shape. I love how it turned out!
5" Kraft card base
DCWV - The Christmas Combo - brown patterned papers (using up scraps from the holidays :-)
Core'dinations - Cherry Cordial
MS All Ocassion Cake Cricut cart- cream frame @4 1/2", banner @1" and ! @ 1/2"
Simply Charmed Cricut cart - bird @2" using flip feature
Cuttlebug folders - swiss dot, birds & swirls
Brown ink, brown lace trim, The Paper Studio -spare parts ruffled ribbon, ric rac ribbon from Oriental Trading Co, square brown brads, pop dots for dimension.
I sanded the embossed bird to allow the core color to show through. I inked and distress the red side of the core paper. I also applied brown ink with a makeup sponge to the ric rack to change it from cranberry to a red to match my project better. I did the same thing with the primary red, ruffled ribbon.
Thanks for looking! Good luck to all in the challenge!
