Sometimes I just can’t believe how alike some of us think. Like this project I’m about to show you.
I made mine a while back and really thought “Hey! This is an awesome idea nobody before me has thought of”……until Lee Cox released her blog post with the gorgeous Gingerbread House Clock she made in red, white and brown (check it out here)
Yup great minds think alike (ha ha ha or just crazy minds) and she had made one just like it too. I’m talking about the 3D Swirly Christmas Tree (a freebie found here)
She too had made it into a 3D creation by gluing six trees together. I just added a second layer of Best Creation White Glitter paper. This was made by making an internal offset of the tree – mine is 1 cm (0.039″)
Such an easy project that looks beautiful during the day and at night…….
Thanks for stopping by today and please remember to leave me a small greeting 🙂
….we all know this tune! You know – the Theme from Jaws! A fitting soundtrack for my tiny post today 😀
The other day when I posted the Acorn Shaker, Team Member Lee Cox mentioned her idea of making a shaker card from the latest collection by Bird – Jawsome but she didn’t have the time for it, so she gave the idea to me. Trying my best to honor her wicked idea, here is what I came up with:
I used the shark from the Shark Window Card and made it into a shaker card by adding 7 layers behind the front layer with the acetate. I removed the teeth on the back layers to give more room for shaking and made two front layers with teeth – one in red and one in white – to give the impression of bloody teeth. I also cut out tiny fish skeletons in white pearl paper and added a bit of red ink to make them look bloody 😀
The background paper I found in the Silhouette Design Store but any sea or wave paper could do.
The card is a freebie from the Card Bundles – the Pop-Up Slider Card from Card Bases. I added the green panels (they are actually the same olive green as the background) to give it a little extra and cut the text from red cardstock in a blood dripping font 😀
Finally I tied some red, white, grey and black raffia onto the slider (doesn’t show in the picture 😦 ) and added two small black pearls as eyes.
Here’s a little close-up:
Thanks for stopping by to witness the twisted and bloody mind of mine (and Lee Cox’s) and don’t forget to tell what you think of this bloody fish-eating shark card 😀
