Since I'm new to the Cricut, I've been experimenting a lot. And sometimes, with me, experimenting means no finished projects. So, this afternoon, I decided that I would make a simple card using only one Cricut cartridge! For this post, I chose the Wild Card cartridge, which has quickly topped my list of favorites. I especially like the matching envelopes! Oh, and I should mention that I wanted to make a card that I hadn't yet seen on any blogs. This doesn't mean no one has made this card and blogged about it, I just haven't seen it, therefore, I haven't been influenced to do it a certain way.
I thought this would be an adorable Valentine's Day card for a child. Here it is:
1) Cut a 4" Monster card. I chose pink cardstock.
2) Cut 4" Monster card blackout image. I used black cardstock.
3) Cut 4" Monster card liner for the card only. I used this really cute heart paper from Wal-Mart.
4) Cut 4" Monster icon for face. I used green.
5) Cut 4" Monster card in green. This is how I put hands and feet on the monster. You don't have to do with step, I just wanted to accentuate the monster's hands and feet.
6) Cut 3" Heart from the heart card. I just realized that there's also a heart under "frame" for the Monster card. See?? I learn as I'm going!! That would have been easier. LOL.
7) Cut 2" uppercase 'U' from the Circle card.
I glued all of the pieces together and added Stickles to the feet, and on the heart closest to the monster's actual heart(hee hee). I also added Stickles to the left side of the inside heart and the right side of the 'U' on the inside of the card. Can't forget the bow! This monster just wouldn't be as cute without it. I hope you like it! I know my 7 year old half brother will love it for Valentine's Day. :)
And just for some eye candy, here are some other cards I've whipped up. A few of these are very simple using very teensy cuts with the Cricut.. Enjoy!
Don't you just love the matching envelope that goes with the Wild Card Owl? I do!! Well, I certainly have a lot to learn when it comes to card making, but I'm having a blast getting the creative juices flowing.
Until next time!
