I sit here typing this post and I can hear a robin chirping outside. Like him, I am longing for Spring to actually arrive. I know the calendar says it is Spring, but it sure doesn't feel like it. The last few days have included SNOW! Let's hope that the last part of the week brings warmer temperatures :)
Today is reveal day for Little Red Wagon and the Cutting Cafe. I combined the challenge for LRW with the file that I used for the Cutting Cafe and I think the result was pretty amazing.
This week Janice (one of the girlfriends from LRW) challenged us to be a 'negative nellie'! She wants us to use the negative of a die-cut! Love this challenge. I chose a really cool file from the Cutting Cafe called the Tall Ice Cream Shaped Card and combined it with the String and Button Envelope! Here is what I created!
I used an embossing folder and my Cuttlebug to create the textured on the cone. I used my favourite ribbon and twine to embellish, along with a tiny tag!
I stitched the 'ice cream' and added a button with some twine for the 'cherry on top'!
For the 'negative nellie' part of the challenge, I cut some balloons out of the front of the envelope and placed a piece of matching striped paper behind them.
I added some twine for the balloon strings and embellished with a small button.
This is the reverse side of the envelope. I used brads for the closure and more twine to match the strings of the balloons.
Here is the complete set! I really like how this turned out! I like combining challenges......I hope the results are inspiring :)
Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to visit the Little Red Wagon girls and see what they have created and also check out the post later today on the Cutting Cafe blog and see what the rest of the team did with these amazing cutting files.
I hope you will visit again this week, as I reveal my first layout using the 'Project Life' style of scrapbooking.
