Fan card

I've been in the mood to try out new techniques and patterns. Luckily, I have lots of friends on the Cricut message board sharing links to web sites with lots of inspiration.

The idea for this card came from: I used Cricut Design Studio to cut the fan blades. They are the exclamation point from Base Camp adjusted a little to get the width I wanted. The exclamation dots were hidden from the cut. I must like that silver embossing powder because I used it again with a flourish stamp from the "Love Flourishes" set by Close to my Heart. The fan blades are secured with a small eyelet installed with my crop-o-dile. When squeezing the eyelet open, there is a first and second stopping point. Squeeze easily and stop at the first hesitation and the fan blades will be able to move. Squeeze too tightly and I found they are impossible to move. A lesson learned!
