Altered Die Cut Cards (post #2)

I have been working on a few extra projects to share with you. Some of the blogs I follow are having challenges for NSD so this week I will probably have at least 2 posts a day. We'll see how the week goes. lol. Of course I will continue to make my projects fit the challenges I follow regularly. You know who you are.

One of the blogs I follow is Nadia's at With Glittering Eyes  If you haven't checked her blog out I highly recommend you do. The girl does magic with paper cuts.

I made two cards today one has many of the cuts the way they are when you cut them the other has cuts that have had a little something done to add dimension. If you follow me you know I LOVE my embossing folders and adding color to my Peachy Keen face stamps. Check out how I used these to enhance some of the cuts.

*Window shape card cut at 6 in. from the Cricut Creative Cards cartridge after welding two windows together and hiding the window panes using CCR.
*All other window cuts cut at 6 in.
*Girl cut at 4 in. from the Cricut Paper Doll Teen Scene cartridge.
*Birdcage cut at 2.5 in. from the Cricut Straight From the Nest cartridge.
*Birds cut at 3 in. from the Cricut Straight From the Nest cartridge.
*Window embossed with the Sizzix Woodgrain folder.
*Leaves and blonde girl's hair embossed with the Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls folder.
*Peachy Keen face stamps
*Flower centers are rhinestones or glitter glue.
