Happy Monday! This week's Bitten by the Bug challenge is the Happy Birthday cut from Hello Kitty Greetings. I welded the cut to the shadow of the cake from Wedding Solutions to make a shaped card then cut several times in regular to layer. I was excited to use my new birthday candles border punch form EK success until I decided each candle needed a jewel flame (37 of the little suckers LOL) I cut the candles in gold first and then in the contrasting colors and cut off the flames and glued together but because of the patterned paper I didn't think they showed up enough. NO tweezers either! AAARRRGGHH!!! The balloons are from my Boo for You die from GoKreate that I ran through the Cuttlebug and attached with wires.
It's a very happy cut so I kept the colors very bright and cheerful. The patterned paper is from the DCWV Spring Glitter stack. Using the outline feature was a bit of a challenge as you have to cut each color in the outline in order for the letters to fit appropriately but hey, isn't that what challenges are all about? At least next time I use this cut I've got a bunch of those skinny little outlines and letters already done. LOL My DT sisters came up with some adorable projects so please bop over to BBTB to check them out. We sure would love you to play along.
