At the request of a co-worker, I created a safari-themed birthday card for a little boy who was turning one. I wasn't quite sure of the layout but I definitely knew that I wanted to use the Cricut Create-A-Critter cartridge since you really can't go wrong with any of those critters. I decided to do a Google image search for inspiration and found this cute safari invitation on Handmade by Odette as well as this safari-themed card on Wickedly Wonderful. Aren't they adorable? Anywho, this is my take with a personalized twist. The palm tree, sun, monkey and giraffe are from the Cricut Create-a-Critter cartridge. The grass cuts are both from the Cricut Paper Doll Dressup cartridge and I also used the Cricut Pooh Font Set. I inked the edges with brown ink for the animals and sun, and used both green and brown ink along the edges of the palm leaves and grass. I gently bent the palm leaves to make them pop out a little and added a random button for the coconut. I also used some pop dots to add some dimension.
