Cuttlebug Challenges Cricut Saturday Cuttin' Up Team - Clearly Creative

Good Saturday morning to everybody! This is my card that I made using more clear material for The Cuttlebug Challenges. My mom actually said, "Why don't you do a house so the little windows are clear?" I thought that was a great idea and since I knew there was this cute little house on Wild Card™, I thought it would be perfect.

I did some work on my Gypsy™ with this one taking out the scalloping on the roof that comes with the natural cut, the scoring lines (as I wanted to make my own), and I added the door back on and then hid the outer rectangle and the door knob so that the window in the door would cut all the way through - providing me another opportunity to use my clear materials :). This could also be replaced with a square or rectangle punch.

The binder cover (my clear material) was utilized in the door, window, and on top of some Core'dinations™ card stock on the roof.

This card was cut at 6.5" and if you had the real dial size off on your Cricut™, then just keep the settings there and cut the rest.

I cut the roof twice: once for the clear and once for the dark grey Core'dinations™ card stock.

I cut the door twice for the clear and the card stock. For the clear piece I "hid" the inner part with my Gypsy™ so that it would be a solid rectangle - this could be replaced by cutting a rectangle by hand or with a rectangle from another cartridge.

I embossed the door with the A2 Forest Branches Emboss Folder™ and the roof was embossed with the clear material on top with the D'vine Swirl Emboss Folder™.

I got the idea for embossing the clear material on top of card stock from one of the Cuttlebug Challenges' faithful followers (and now one of my followers) Ilona! Thank you! If you click on her name it will take you to the post that got me thinking about acetate swirls. :)

I actually cut the topiaries that were on this page as well, but decided to cut their tops off and use the bottoms as flower pots and added these sweet flowers to it.

I added a button as the door knob and voila! It was done!
