Double Trouble is celebrating its 100th Challenge and its first challenge of 2022. This is a biweekly challenge closing on Sunday evening, January 16, 2022. As is customary, there are three "Things" to the challenge.
Thing 1 (required): Trouble Maker wants us to remember that January 6 is Cuddle Up Day so she wants to see your project about cozy and warm and layering. That means your project must have at least two layers on top of the card base and your project must include the use of at least one die.
Thing 2 (optional): Double Dare hopes you will take on the challenge to ensure your card also meets the requirements of our partner, Bitten by the Bug 2. Be sure to check out their guidelines.
Thing 3 (optional): Twisted Sister is challenging you to include a cuddly item on your projects such as a quilt, comfort food, or even a good book - something you like to cuddle with.
With each of the above elements, you will earn a chance at our random draw so we encourage you to play along and join the fun. For our 100th anniversary, we are also including some fun prizes in addition to our usual random draw, so be sure to follow our guidelines at our DTC100 Blog.
I decided to use a pair of mittens for my cozy and warm item. I always wear gloves of some type when the weather turns even the slightest bit cool so I like mittens when the temperatures really drop. I assembled three rectangular die-cut panels onto the card base then added snowflakes and mittens, so ended with a card comprised of five layers. To complete the card I added a narrow red ribbon and a couple of "buttons" to the mittens.
Thing 2 Prize: Double Dare (That's me!)
I am offering a Special Prize if you have used a machine-created image or shape on your project. Be sure to mention in your post what element you created and what machine you used. A Cricut, Silhouette, Brother Scan 'n Cut or similar is acceptable. To enter, leave a comment below.
We're looking forward to seeing your creations for "warm and cozy!"
