ABC Challenge - Anniversary ~ Papertake Weekly Challenge - Dawny's Sketch #8 ~ Cuttlebug Challenge - Love


I bought a new pack of papers from Paper Cellar Ltd recently, and this one seem to be crying out for an Anniversary card... and this is it.

The sketch is from Papertake, the theme from ABC and if you look closely you may spot a little shrink plastic charm which says 'LOVE', which is from the Cuttlebug Challenge. I had heard that other people had done this and thought I would give it a go. It's a Cuttlebug die cut, but when shrinking, the curling up stage proves most problematic. The loopy bits want to fuse together and this is about the best of the three that I tried. If anyone has a foolproof method of doing the shrinking bit, I'd love to hear it.

The light has caught the coloured part of the image, but in regular daylight it's about the same colour as the background of the paper.

I hope everyone has a great weekend and that the weather will be kind to us.
