Hi GREAT challenge a chance to get creative. What a marvellous idea and actually quite simple. I haven't got a cricut so I had to cut out my shape with good old fashions craft knife. I used some chipboard from the back of a pad. I have done a Santa shape so I can create cards for my childrens friends. I used acrylic to paint him. You can make each one individual. It saves time as you only have to draw in the detail. I love the way the embossing creates a raised look without having to use sticky pads. I adored this challenge and will definately look to creating more of my own folders the possibilities are endless!
