Flaunt It Fridays #20 - Cindy Loo

It is time for another fun challenge at Flaunt It Fridays! This week we are using Cricut Cindy Loo cartridge and anything goes. You can choose any cut that you would like to use. I do not have this cartridge so this was a challenge for me! First I viewed the online handbook to see the different cuts. While looking through my different cartridges, I chose images that I thought would represent some of the images on Cindy Loo--a birdhouse, scallop border, flourish, and the word Hello.
Card is 5 x 6 1/2 and is layered with a piece of Recollections paper. My papers are scraps leftover from other projects. I like it when I can use some of my scrap papers!

Cricut cartridges:
Stretch Your Imagination - Birdhouse on page 63 cut 2 1/4 inches. Birdhouse is pop-dotted.
Lovely Florals - Mats - This cut is the second image on the second row. Brown scallop mat is cut at 3 1/4 inches and the cream mat is cut at 3 1/2. I first cut both mats at 3 1/2 but decided to have less of the brown mat showing.
Home Decor - Flourish is the 3rd key on the first row cut at 1 1/4 inches.
Wild Card - Hello on page 72 cut at 4 1/2 inches.
Cuttlebug folders:  Distressed Stripes - Birdhouse;  Birds and Swirls - Cream mat
I used a punch for the corners and lots of inking!

Be sure to check out the projects by the design team at Flaunt It Fridays! Now it is your turn to flaunt the cuts from Cindy Loo with us. Remember if you do not have the cartridge, you can use similar cuts from another cartridge. Just a reminder that this month's Grand Prize is a Joy's Life Lot's of Pun stamp set sponsored by Sheree. We look forward to seeing your paper can be a card, layout, tag, etc. You have one week to enter!

Thanks for visiting my blog! Hope you enjoy the card!

  1. That is one of my favorite birdhouses. Sometimes you've just got to stick with the old standbys. I love your card.
