Silhouette UK - Free Design Weekly Challenge

As I enjoyed playing along with the Silhouette UK Free Design Weekly Challenge, last week, I thought I would enter this week's too especially when I saw what it was....
 
My head was buzzing with all sorts of possibilities but actually when it came to it I had such a time trying to decide which way to go and my craft room ended up in a right mess!!  Anyway I couldn't choose between 2 cards so I am showing you both of them.

The gold and black one is a shaker card and I used Silhouette's Printable Gold Foil to cut out the shape using my Silhouette Cameo and filled my shaker with Gold Dust Sequins from Little Things - Lucy's Cards.  I then adhered this to a card base using double sided foam to give it dimension.

For my second card I used the negative parts that were left after I cut the bird out in red card.  Getting them onto the card was a bit tricky but all I did was put the positive shape on the card and filled it with the negative parts, sticking them as I went.

The leaves were cut from a svg that I bought ages ago from the Silhouette Online Store.  I love how the red pops out from the white.
 
Best clear up my craft room now - it's amazing how much mess I can create making just 2 cards!!!!!!!!
 
Hop on over to the Silhouette Blog to see what the talented Design Team have come up with.

  3. Great work Wendy. When I first looked at the gold bird I thought he was full of clockwork pieces! I am glad to see others are loving the free file this week.
