Welcome to another challenge day over at Cooking with Cricut! This week our theme is Candle Rings, Wreaths and Pinecones in celebration of the first Sunday of Advent.
I made paper flowers using the Art Philosophy Cartridge from book pages and cardstock. I also added some pinecones and paper "holly" also cut from the Art Philosophy Cartridge.
After I cut out the holly leaves I folded them in half lengthwise . . .
then I ran them through my New England Ivy ink pad . . .
unfolded them the opposite direction, inked around the edges with a sponge and got a very nice and realistic looking paper holly leaf :)
I used the red glitz gel on some orange berries to make them look like holly berries.
I'm guest posting the tutorial on these flowers over at A Quiverfull of Blessings if you are interested in seeing how to make them.
Now it is your turn! I can't wait to see what you create this week using candles, wreaths and pinecones. Don't forget to link up your project over at Cooking with Cricut!
