BLOG HOP Free Cut File+GIVEAWAY+Bendy Card Tutorial...

Good morning my crafty friends, 

I am VERY excited to share today a brand new project and
There is a great Spellbinders prize WOOT!
 And as always a FREE free SVG/Silhouette file 
*Prize photos below*

If you are coming from Allie's Blog then you are in the right place!
This is my FIRST project since being back on this amazing team
and I am sure it is just a taste of what is to come. 
Our theme is snowflakes and I was so inspired with this lace-
I sort of took it in a different direction and went crazy!! :) 
*Shocking I know* LOL

Samantha created these amazing cut files called "Bendy" Cards
and I could not resist cutting one right away and creating it for the blog hop!
Now there is a FULL tutorial on SW blog for assembling these Bendy Cards
And I wanted to share how I created my version too. 

on my Silhouette using Kraft Cardstock paper. 
I also cut these "XO" Hearts using red card stock on my Silhouette as well. 
I ran the hearts through the sticker maker wrong side down-
then coated in Ultrafine red glitter. 
Then I used a high tack tape to add a glitter stripe to the bendy card layers. 
I sprinkled on the glitter. 
Then used the same high tack tape to assemble the card. 
AFTER it was assembled I added the pearls and lace- because the
pearls needed to be added while it was bent- they kept popping off when
I added them laying flat. 

I adhered the hearts to an iridescent shimmery vellum paper- 
then adhere them to the card itself using foam squares. 
Then I added the lock and key. 

Here the card is open and it's perfect to write in or stamp inside. 
I love the layers and I am completely addicted I can tell you after just one!

The next blog on the blog hop is Diane Fisher- just in case
