Cricut Create a Critter Bunny Card

Cricut Create a Critter Bunny Card

Taking inspiration from an adorable bunny gift bag, I decided to make a bunny themed birthday card for my BFF's daughter. I used the bunny cut from the Cricut Create a Critter cartridge and added a circle frame to it using the Design Studio. As usual, I stuck with a standard A2 card size, so the bunny itself is about 2". I couldn't figure out how to crop the bunny to fit the circle using the Design Studio so I just cut off the lower parts after I adhered it to the circle.

For help with the layout, I turned to MFT Card Challenges sketch 346. It's a fun sketch and one that reminded me to try some faux stitching. The problem is I didn't have a fine tip black marker so I'm not thrilled with how the stitching looks. I reused some old grosgrain ribbon and the stamp is from the dollar store. Inside the card, I wrote: "Some bunny told me it's your birthday!" Ba-dum, ching!

Create a Critter Squirrel Birthday Card

Create a Critter Squirrel Birthday Card

I'm baaaack!

I know it's been a long time since I last posted, way too long. The truth is I haven't been crafting as much as I used to. I've been lacking the inspiration, the time and the patience as of late. But I recently took advantage of an Amazon Prime Day deal and I bought a Cricut Expore Air 2. Since then, I have made a handful of crafts and I am eager to get back in to crafting regularly. Today I share the first card I made using my new machine. It's a birthday card in a standard A4 size. The squirrel is from the Cricut Create a Critter cartridge and it's about 3". I removed a couple of contours using the Design Space contours feature to hide the eyes, nose and mouth since I wanted to hand draw the face. The grosgrain ribbon is from a box of chocolates I was given by one of my students. I used foam dimensional dots from the dollar store to adhere the critter to the card front. Isn't this squirrel a cutie?
