A while back it seemed that every Cricut cartridge I picked up had a birdcage on it. Now I know there are some people who love them, but I've been on board with the birdcage trend as much as I have been following the owl craze, which is to say, not so much. However, in my continued exploration of Sophie I came across a few birdcage cuts that I actually like quite a bit. This is the second of the two.
The first one didn't turn out quite as well as I intended so I'm going to have to back to the drawing board with that one. This one, however, looks really good. I used the Card 2 feature, hid the actual card using hide selected contour on my gypsy, and I added a frame from Elegant Edges. The paper is from the Mystical Garden collection and I printed it on my Imagine this morning. I'm starting to get the hang of that. I am still eagly anticipating the release of the Craftroom from Beta so I can really play with all of my cartridges, but I digress. Here is this morning's Just a Note card.
Paper: Cricut Imagine Mystical Garden, Stampin' Up Natural White
Cartridges: Sophie, Elegant Edges
Twine: The Twinery
Bling & Paper Flower: My Stash
Stamps: Waltzingmouse, Ink: Stampin' Up's Chocolate Chip and Nearly Navy
I am also entering this card in this week's Case Study Challenge Blog challenge, which is to really just show your signature style. One of the things I do best is layering and dimension and this card, while on the simple side of things, does show both those things. It's my first time playing along at this challenge blog, I've been admiring it for a while so I figured it was time to get my feet wet. Wish me luck!
And as always, thanks for stopping by!!
