Well since today is Monday, you all know that means it is time for a new challenge over at BBTB2. My sweet design team sister, Emily, has chosen our theme this week. And she has told us that it is National Old Stuff Day. Who knew?! So in honor of that we are to use a Cricut cartridge we haven't use in at least 6 months. Well I haven't used a lot of mine in 6 months because I have fallen in love the the CTMH Cricut carts and use them a good bit. But I did go through and used a cartridge that I first go when I got my Cricut and that is Beyond Birthdays. I also use Solar System digi for my world.
I used my Explore to layout my window card base on, which is from Beyond Birthdays. I then wasn't sure where I was going to go with it, and then saw the Peace on Earth cut on BB, so I then decided to make it a Christmas card. Then I saw the dove with the olive branch, and thought that went well with the Peace on Earth. So I laid two out. Then of course I needed an earth, and I found that in Solar System digital images. I used dark blue cardstock for my base. I used all snippets for my card except for the card base. The blue for the ocean on my world was a cloud looking paper, but I thought it worked well for on the earth. The land is green foil paper. The "peace" shadow is some left over from the blue card base and the "peace" on top is cut from silver foil paper. The doves are just from white cardstock and the olive branches are cut from the same green foil paper as the world land. I just added a simple Merry Christmas to the inside and called it done. Not my most favorite card, but I loved the idea behind it. lol Want more inspiration? Then look no farther than my DT sisters, they have some fabulous projects for you today!! After you are done being inspired, make a project using a cartridge that you haven't used in a long time! Then link up with us.
