Create A Critter 2 contest project

This project was made for the contest for the Create A Critter 2 sneak peek contest.
I used the squiral and the tree icon that went with it. I cut the squirral out at 4" and the tree at 3". The sun is cut from Create a Critter at 1". I cuttlebugged the tree and added a little glitter on the leaves, buckle on the hat and the suns checks. I also added some googly eyes on the squirral and used my black gel pen for the trees eyes and mouth. I used my MS loop punch on the trim along the bottom. Everything is layed out on a 6x6 card.
Thanks for stopping by and visting and have a great day!

Wedding Card

I hope everyone had a relaxing and safe long holiday weekend. This project is for the new Cricut FANatic blog that a fellow cricut cirlce member started up since we have lost our beloved cricut circle blog a month ago. This is my very first time to be a designer for a blog other then my own. I think I'm going to have so much fun coming up with something new every month and getting to see what everyone else comes up with.

Today I have made a card to show ya'll. A good friend of ours just got married over the weekend and this is the card I made for them. For the card base I used my Art Philosophy cartridge and used the card on page 37 and cut it out withh the layers at 5.5". I used Echo Park paper from a 6x6 pad for the top layer and then used a few pieces of a darker red under the top layer for the pop of color to go with the dress. For the bottom layer I used a thin sheet of off white. I also added a couple of dimonds for a little bling.
For the dress I used Tie the Knot and the dress is from page 46 and cut it at 3.75". I used a piece of kinda darker red for the bottom layer of the dress and I also wanted to give this card a pop of color and have always thought that red looks very pretty and eleagnt with black and white. For the top layer of the dress I took a card and cut it in half so it would stand out from the other shade of white that I used for the card base using the devine swirls folder. I added some Martha Stewart pearls along the sash and bottom and cuttlebuged the top layer to give it some texture.
The MR. & MRS. I found also on Tie the Knot on page 62. I cut all layers at 1" and added some Martha Stewert crystal glitter to give it that extra sparkle.
Hope you have a wonderful day and can't wait to be back here this time next month with something new to show ya'll!
