5th non-winning MIFYH contest entry

Okay, so we're now half-way through my non-winners, with this being #5.

I entered this 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" card into the Cricut using Elemental Level 2 paper pack category.

Everything on my card was cut using the new Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge (except for the scallop trim piece that I used our corner rounder on).

Using a transparency sheet, I cut a large doily/snowflake shape from the cartridge and layed it over top of the Chocolate cardstock piece.  Then I sponged Chocolate ink over top of it, giving it a really cool patterned look.  My fave part of the card.  ;)
It just adds so much... texture.

The rest of the card is pretty straight forward.


I'll continue with my 6th non-winner on Monday.

That way I can either take a weekend break if needed, or possibly post some things that I've created in the mean time that have nothing to do with the MIFYH contest.  ;)

Happy creating!  :)

Beautiful card! You should frame it and hang in your new home!

I like that idea of framing it... might just have to! :)

OMG. All your non winning cards are absolutely amazing. If they passed on these I can only imagine what they picked. I really hope they picked something from your submissions. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us!
