Create A Critter Mushroom Card




Here's the third and final card I made for my daughter so when she goes to Girl Scout summer camp she can receive some mail. If you would like to see how this card was made you may watch the video. I think this is my favorite of three I made for her, but I am sure hers will be the panda card. As long as she knows we are thinking about her that's what important.

Thanks for taking a peek!!

Cricut Create A Critter Panda Card


This is the video for the card below. Sorry I cut out some of the images at the top in the video. It's my second video and I'll get better.


I made this card for my daughter Alivia. She is leaving for Girl Scout Camp.
I thought it would be nice for her to get a couple of cards while she is away, to let
her know I am thinking of her. I thought it turned out nice as her favorite animal is
a panda. Hope you enjoy!!

Father's Day Card

I did this card for a couple of Father's Day Card Challenges. The shirt and tie is from Simply Charmed. The hangar and clothespins are from Straight From The Nest. I used all extra pieces of paper that I had left over from other cards. I did add a tag, so I could stamp Father. I did the edges of the tag in Tim Holtz Distress Ink Forest Green. I really liked the browns and greens together. I added some ribbon at the bottom and a button on the tag.

Below is a similar card I did up as I did two sets of the shirt, tie, hangar and clothespin.

Snail Mail Card

This card I made for the challenge "Don't Bug Me". I used the Cricut cartridges Create A Critter (Snail) and Freshly Picked (Leaf).

The paper at the top, dark purple with flowers is from DCWV Latte Matstack. I used a light purple piece of cardstock at the bottom and did the design on my Cuddlebug.

The Snail Mail post sign is from Freshly Picked. I did use some Tim Holtz Distress Ink Dusty Concord around the edges. I also used a black gel pen to do the stitching.

The leaf is also from Freshly Picked. I added Tim Holtz Distress Ink Forest Moss around the edges of the leaf to give a more real look to the leaf. The sentiment on the leaf is from Scappy Moms Simple Sentiments.

On the snails shell I did add some glitter. I did put the leaf and snail on 3D foam squares.
