Exploring Cricut Celebrations Candy Challenge

Photobucket


Welcome to the 2nd Challenge of the Exploring Cricut Challenge Blog.  Today's challenge was to make a project using the candy pieces found on page 111 of the Cricut Celebrations cartridge.  I started by cutting the candy pieces at 4.5 inches out of SU Garden Green, SU Cherry Cobbler, and SU Whisper White cardstock.  I put the layers of candy together using Zip dry glue pens.

Here, I cut a piece of SU Cherry Cobbler cardstock to 8 x 8 and a piece of SU Jolly Holidays Designer Series paper at 7 3/4 x 7 3/4.
Adhered the sheets together using my ATG gun.

I cut the words "Peppermint Bark" out of SU Garden Geen and SU Cherry Cobbler using the Cricut Winter Wonderland cartridge font at 1.5 inches.  I also cut out the scallop shape out of SU Cherry Cobbler using the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge on page 47.  My printer is out of ink so I will have to add my recipe for Peppermint Bark, later, but you get the idea.  I placed my candy cut outs on the page using SU Stampin' dimensionals and Pop Dots.  Added stickles to the candy to give it a little sparkle, and used a crystal embellishment to dot the "i" in Peppermint.  It's a nice sized 8 x 8 recipe layout.  If you'd like a recipe for Peppermint Bark, click HERE!

I hope you like my challenge project and are inspired to make a challenge project of your own.  Don't forget to come back Wednesday to see my Exploring Cricut "Daily Design."  Until next time.....
