Craftin Desert Diva's 3D Linky Party

Hi there crafty friends! It is time for another challenge and we would love for you to join us! The theme is to create any 3D project. Every other Monday will mark the beginning of a new semi weekly linky party over at Craftin Desert Divas. We hope you will share your projects with us! And don't forget about the prizes! At every linky party there will be a winner and a Top 3. The more times you link up, the more chances you have to win! 

This party our sponsors are:


Now here is what I made:

I made a 3D Valentine's Day card.  I used my Cricut Noah's ABC Animals cartridge to cut this cutie pie squirrel out at 5.5 inches. I embossed her tail with my Divine Swirls Cuttlebug folder. The banner is from the Craftin Desert Diva's Tag It stamp set and I used the coordinating SVG. The sentiment is from two different sets. Nuts about U is from the Punny set and Valentine is from Happy Celebrations. I taped off to isolate just the word Valentine.

I added a little bow to her head. The nut is from the Tablescapes Fall & Winter cartridge. I inked it up and attached it to her paws with some twine. The neat thing is I fixed her legs so this card will fold flat to put into an envelope!

Here is a close-up of the tag and sentiment. I think this came out so cute and it was a lot of fun to make. I am on a quest to use my stuff this year and I have never used this cartridge before. I hope to try some other 3D animals soon! :)

Here are all the stamp sets I used. You can purchase these fabulous stamps and more HERE !!

Don't forget about the upcoming Craftin Desert Diva's new release:

I hope you will join our Linky Party and I do hope to see your projects in the CDD Gallery on Facebook!

Thanks for hoppin by and have a blessed day!
