For Earth Day I made this really cute card and adorable video, and the video will not work no matter what I try, so I am going to share the finished project with you! 🙂 Thought you would still enjoy the cuteness of this Cricut Cartridge as well as the papers and such used with it! 🙂
First of all I want to tell you all I used in this! 🙂
For this Card you will need:
- Give a Hoot Cricut Cartridge (I used the Hedgehog and I also used one of the tags in blackout as the actual card base)
- DCWV (Die Cuts With a View) Go Green Pack – Scrapbook paper that is made from recycled materials and is SO stinkin’ CUTE!
- Stampin’ Up Bermuda Bay, Dusty Durango and Crushed Curry Cardstocks
- Making Memories box of flowers
- Simple Brad
- Black Gel Pen
- Brown Polka Dot Ribbon from Michaels
- Adhesive of your choice (I prefer my Zig Two Way Glue Pen and my ATG for this project)
Card base was two of the square tags from Give A Hoot cut in blackout at 5″. The whole in the top of the tag was just tied together with ribbon twice around. The paper was the wood grain pattern in the DCWV Go Green Stack.
Cut out the phrase “I Care” from Give A Hoot. (The awesome thing about Give A Hoot is the shadow options for the creative features) So I cut the Phrase on regular at 1.5″ and then the shadow of the same phrase at 1.5″ (SO AWESOME!)
The hedgehog and all the accessories were cut out at 2″. Make sure that REAL DIAL SIZE is turned OFF when you create all the layers for this little guy! 🙂 You can see there are several layers to him but I started out his main body in the Bermuda Bay (Blue), then I cut the layers in Soft Suede and Crushed Curry (Yellow).
Added a little extra touches with my black gel pen with scribbles and doodles 🙂
Attached my flowers, and there is a very easy and adorable little card!
Hope you enjoyed – I had fun making this card just a little different from the standard A2 cards and I just think this Cricut Cartridge is adorable! Hope you have a great day and Enjoy the Moments!
OH BY THE WAY!!!!!!!
