Pom Pom Trim cut file and Two Cards to share
This weekend I got a chance to get out and crop with the S.C.R.A.P. Guild of Northern IL and my sisters. I had a lot of fun and was happy with my work! Here are two cards I made, one for Christmas With The Cricut (I won a Scrap Ma Bob from one of their sponsors) and the other is for the sponsor.
On the Christmas Thank you I used Basic Grey paper, miscellaneous card stock (from my sister, so I am not sure of the brand), a micro pom pom trim (from the Sugar Pink shop on Etsy listed in yesterday's post), and SU border punch and stamp, my sewing machine, and my Storybook cartridge.
For the Pom Pom trim cut file thank you card, I used Close to My Heart paper and stamps, colored card stock, DCWV Glitter mats, Me and My Big Ideas bling, Clear Art Stamps Sew Special (for zig zag and button, and my Cricut Storybook! For the cut file, I used George and Storybook.
You can find the cut file here. After spending quite a bit of time on the cutfile, I realized that there should only be one scallop between each pom pom. So, another opportunity to embellish, I used some bling between the scallopes. I will probably make another pom pom file when time allows. Also, there are two cuts in this file, one for the card maker and one for the scrapbooker (a border cut). Both are adjustable! I am seriously considering purchasing some flocking powder or petal soft to make this pom pom trim have more texture. But the mad money account continues to dwindle as the year progresses. If you have either of these products, please use it on the pom pom and share your picture in the Cricut message boards here. Please help me decide if it is worth the money!
I would love to have your comments on my cut file and please don't sell my file, or use it for a competition!
