Smile!

Hi everyone, I have a super cute Cricut card to share with you. I created this card as part of a challenge at My Pink Stamper to use pink, brown, green and an additional color of my choosing. In this card I used SU cardstock in blushing bride, espresso, celery and wild wasabi. The designer paper is SU's Greenhouse Gala - the first time I've used it. The paper has the greens and browns and I thought the blue in the paper was a nice additional color.

I used my favorite Cricut cartridge Create a Critter. I used the shadow feature as well and you can see it peeking out from behind my green frog. I did cut the lilypad but it blends and is covered by the sentiment which is also from the same cartridge. "Smile" is cut at 1" and the frog is cut at 3.75". The cartridge has various "accessories" for your critters and I cut out the crown which had some holes but I filled up the holes with gems because a crown needs some bling!

As I have mentioned, I have just rediscovered my Cricut - I seemed to collect a lot of cartridges but rarely used it. I now have a Gypsy and traded up my baby bug for the Expression and have been watching a lot of videos and now find it addicting! Don't worry there will still be stamping here on the blog but I plan on showcasing more scrapbooking and cricut artwork too!

Pin It Now!
