JAS Challenge #15 Critters, and Buttons and Embossing...Oh, My!

Thursday, August 2, 2012

Happy Thursday fellow crafters!

At Just A Scrappin' we have a fabulous challenge this week: critters, buttons and embossing! Use all three of these elements to create a card, layout or project (color choice is up to you). Add a little creativity and you are off to a great start.

I thought about the critter element and thought, "Finally, a chance to use my Cindy Loo cartridge!" Sad detail is I had purchased that particular cartridge one year ago and never made a single cut! Sad, but true. I enjoyed this challenge, as with the others, and had a chance to utilize the brads in my stash (I ran out of buttons). Please check out the other fabulous designers on the team. Enjoy!

Cartridge: Cindy Loo (Shunk cut at 2 1/4"; frame cut at 4"), Elegant Edges (border cut at 1 1/4"; marquee (3 1/2" oblong)

  1. OMG...I love how you finished the inside. It is so great, both the front and the inside are so finished!

    I really love how you used the scallop and layered them on the bottom of the card.

    You are giving me an overload of ideas right now!!


  2. That squirrel is just precious-love the emboss on the bottom layer of him. Very adorable card!
