Fantabulous Cricut !


Hi Everyone! This weeks challenge is to create a Zoo themed animal! Whenever I visit the zoo I always like to look in the reptile house, its neat to see scary stuff that close up a KNOW your safe LOL !!!
So this card I used the snake from Create a Critter and just cut off the party hat! The snake is cut from the new paper stack from DCWV "Weathered and Worn" The paper is textured to look more realistic!

I also used the Pearl frame Cuttlebug die cut and embossing plate to create the mirror. Its hard to see in the picture but the mirror is silver metallic cardstock I found at walmart on clearance (yippy).

I also used my destressing tool around the background paper & tag, inked it, added stickles, rhinestones, some cute eyelash movable eyes and finished it with a metallic green gel pen. Enjoy!

If you want to play along in this challenge please cloick here for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog Hope to see you there!
