Hello everyone. It is Monday and that means it is time for another Bitten by the Bug 2 Cricut challenge. This week's challenge is being hosted my my sweet Design Team sister, Pam. Pam has challenged us to use Spring Flowers on a project this week. With the lingering winter in many parts of the US, I think the sight of spring flowers would brighten everyone's day! I know I love flower, but especially those first blooms of spring.
I had planned to make a spring flower embellished "purse", but the more I looked at this darling baby shoe cut on the CTMH Cricut Artiste cartridge, I just couldn't resist crafting a set of sweet pink, flower embellished baby shoes! I used two cartridges to make the shoes, CTMH Artiste and CTMH Art Philosophy.
I cut the top layer of the shoe four times - two cuts in pink Close To My Heart solid Sorbet card stock, and two times in CTMH print card stock. I did this for two reasons: 1. to reinforce the shoe upper after embossing, and 2. to create some contrast inside the shoe.
I used one of those beautiful Anna Griffin embossing folders to emboss the baby shoes - this folder is called Pirouette and I purchased it at HSN.
I finished the shoes with pink organza ribbon bows. Wouldn't these little shoes be adorable at a baby shower?
Be sure to go by Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out the fabulous Spring Flower projects my Design Team sisters created! This is such a fun challenge, especially at this time of year, I hope that you will make time this week to join us in the challenge!!
