Cute Critters

This little card I whipped together pretty fast to get it into the My Craft Spot challenge#10 - Cute Critters.
I had been wanting to make a card with the 'slider' feature from the 'Straight From the Nest' cricut cartridge. It is such a fun feature as it allows you to slide ribbon or anthing else you want through the cut outs.  If I could go back and change something on this card it would be the lettering of the words. I would do them much smaller!  Gee, I don't usually want to change anything on my cards, but I have to be honest here! So, here it is:

Here are the particulars:
  • Paper:  cardstock from DCWV & Core'dinations; dot paper by DCWV (love this paper)
  • Cricut Cartridge:  Straight from the nest, owl on page 30
  • VersaMagic Chalk Ink in Gingerbread
  • Embellishments:  Rhinestones by JoLee's Boutique and Offray, Green 4/8" grosgrain ribbon
  • Words and sentiment done on the computer - the inspiration for the words came from the cricut cartridge I used.  The cartridge has so many wonderful sayings and they are cute as can be.
I have to tell you that I am really enjoying this cartridge.  I have only had it a week but it is so versatile and the designs are wonderful.  With the corner and slider features it has tons of uses.  Hope you enjoyed looking.  I am kinda maxed out today because I have done 4 cards this week and that is a record for me!  Have a good weekend everyone and THANKS to my WONDERFUL guys are the BEST!

This is adorable! I love the way you did the faux stitching around the owl on the mat paper. It looks fantastic and really makes the owl pop!
