What I love about the Joy of Sets blog is that there Tic Tac Toe challenges are just that, a challenge. While other card making blogs give variations on the same color, emboss, and ribbon styles, Joy of Sets often offers unique counterpoints that make card creating tricky in its own right. Take a look at October's challenge:
As it stood, I was a bit perplexed, and I decided that my Cricut Joy might actually be the way to go for this. While originally I felt more tepid towards my Cricut Joy, in recent months, I pull it out when I need a card quickly. I knew the diagonal black, silhouette and glitter would be the perfect way to go. So here were the results:
I wish you could actually see the card in motion, as the glitter cardstock captures every ounce of light around it. Photographically, it doesn't come across.
I'm actually surprised that the Cricut company hasn't started to offer glitter card stock for the joy, so I have to rely on my own chopping to get the insert to fit just right.
Because I had my machine out, I went into full production mode. Here was another card that fit the challenge perfectly.
This is kind of the weirdest card, isn't it? It's the only Feel Better Soon card that fits for the month of October. Bizarre.
Because I was working my way through glitter cardstock, I decided to make a couple more Christmas festive cards. They don't have the black that's needed for the challenge; nevertheless, I thought I'd share them anyway.
As per usual with the Cricut Joy, I didn't feel much like a designer. If I get my new card die set, I will definitely be revisiting the Joy of Sets challenge again, because this is just what I need to keep my inspiration up.
