BBTB2 - Alter A Cricut Cut

Bitten by the Bug 2

Happy Monday!!!
The first week in JUNE?!?!
Are you kidding me?!?!
Honestly, though, I am so excited for summer to be here!
With all the kids out of school,
my son will finally have some of his friends to be able to play with
This will be GLORIOUS!!!

Well, enough about that :)
Today over at BBTB2, a new challenge is upon us!
And it's a FABULOUS one too!

We want you to ALTER a Cricut cut!

There are so many ways you can alter cuts,
I decided to use my favorite way to alter cuts and add dimension...

Just a few months after I bought my first Cricut,
I HAD to buy the Cuttlebug :)

I LOVE all the different embossing folders that are available
and adding that extra texture to cards and cuts
really does make a difference in card making!

So here's my project:

I used the cutest Ice Cream Cone from Doodlecharms
and embossed the cone with the
Argyle Embossing Folder from Cricut.
My paper is from American Crafts, my twine is We R Memory Keepers,
the embellishments are from Hobby Lobby
and my stamp is from Craftin' Desert Divas
Simply Said stamp set.

This is the inside of the card and
I used one of CardzTV stamps
from the This N That set.

I hope that you will join us for this week's challenge
and be sure to check out all the DT's projects
for different ideas on how to alter your cuts.

Here's the Video:
