3D day

Hi everyone!

This week at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge we were supposed to make a 3D project. The timing was great as I had a baby shower to attend and needed a gift. The new mommy is expecting twins (one of each)! I made this frame for her to fill with pictures or other mementos from their early lives.


There are two Cricut cuts on this frame and a bunch of other things. I didn't overdo it because I know the mom is keeping things pretty minimal in the nursery. There is no theme so I just picked a pack of paper from Walmart that had some cute things that worked for both boys and girls.

The theme of the shower was "two peas in a pod" so I cut the peas from the Savory cartridge at 3". I cut the 2 peas out of light beige paper and drew little sleeping faces on them. There's still room in that frame for a small photo. The cut is attached to the paper under the glass. The other cut, the carriage, is from the Best Images of 2010 cartridge. It was cut at 1 3/4". I adhered it to the glass so they can put a photo under it and not worry about covering it up. There is a little bling on the wheels as well and I didn't want that to scratch the glass.



This is a picture of the whole thing. They have cherry wood cribs so this should work. There are several other elements in/on different frames including embossing, a Wild Orchid Crafts flower and seam binding, buttons from Walmart, and butterflies from a Martha Stewart punch. It's hard to see but there is some dimension on the piece with the clouds. I cut out one of the cloud/rainbow combos and elevated it with glue squares. There are also some hearts punched out with an old tiny heart punch and attached with some dimensional glue squares. 

Even though it's not fancy it turned out pretty cute, and she really liked it which is the most important thing!
