BBTB2 Music/Dance Challenge

Time for a new challenge on the Bitten By The Bug 2 (BBTB2) Cricut challenge site. It's my turn to host and I chose the theme I had all kinds of projects in mind but settled on making a slimline spinner card. I've never made one before but I thought it would be neat to have a ballerina spinning. 

I search "dancer" images in Design Space and found this one from the Dance It Out set and knew she'd be perfect! Then I designed the card using shapes. First a square turned into a rectangle for the card base. Then a circle turned into an oval for the cut out. Since it's a slimline card, the card base rectangle is 7.5x8.5 (once folded the card size is 3.75x8.5).

I made another rectangle 3.5x8 for the card front. I arranged it on the right side of the card base so the oval cut out would be in the same spot.

The ballerina was duplicated and then flipped. With the silhouette design, I probably didn't need to flip it, but sometimes the cut can be different, so I figured, better to be safe than sorry.

As you can tell, I added some fun eyelash trim and a punched border strip to the front left and a cute gem to her hair (on both sides).

Isn't this a fun card! I must make more!

Now it's your turn...create a music/dance project with your Cricut and link it to the BBTB2 site before the two week deadline. Don't forget to let us know how you used your Cricut for the project.

  2. this is great! Love your perfect instructions, too! thanks for a wonderful challenge.


  3. What a fun card. A spinning ballerina is so perfect for a spinning card. I haven't tried one, but this certainly makes it look easy.

  4. I've never tried a spinning card-looks very fun! I've found recipients LOVE interactive cards, so I bet this will be a hit! And it looks great!
