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?
