(hope you had a great memorial weekend and a minute of silence for our fallen heroes)

today is episode #6 of the paper dolls series (PDDU)
as some of you know, we chose this oldie of a cartridge in the cricut family. pddu has a lot to offer as you can see. these are our projects to share while having fun dissecting this cart in different ways and reminding ourselves or discovering for first time most of the images in it--wink!!!

this week i am working with page #25 and decided to make a mini cards set (three in the set) using some of the images from this page.

Mini Cards Set
4" x 4" square
i used the bat, skeleton and tombstone.

the card base for all is a 4" x 8" piece of cardstock (in this case, i used bazzill), then scored at 4" and corners rounded with a corner rounder from zutter which seems to be getting dull already.
  (any suggestions i haven't tried to sharpen it again, will be greatly appreciated. i already tried the foil paper and sandpaper).
anyhow, the mme patterned paper, was cut a 1/8 of an inch smaller: 3- 7/8". 
the border is from strips of scrap paper i save in my irises containers for a "quick fix", hehe
the tombstone border is from martha stewart crafts line.


mr creepy skeleton here was cut at 2.91" but i think i could have went up to 3" high for this. the creepy embellishment was found in my "forever stash"--- hehe. the mini banner was handcut.


this tombstone is my favorite.
the banner and font are from blackletter. then, using my "still working" cri-kit markers, i wrote "bones" and did the outline for the banner. it was then popped up with foam adhesive.
the "rip" and the white markings were done with a stamp and that is the look i was going for. later, i added more markings but too lazy to take more pics, :-)
the scalloped border is the negative of some paper punch i have. it was also found in the iris case i mentioned before--wink!!!

and...this is it about my project for today.    now,       we move onto my teammates work.

hehe, so cool!



nice projects, huh?
