Brrr! Winter Frolic Card
I just received my Winter Frolic Cricut Cartridge in the mail on Friday and of course wanted to play with it right away. I finally got the chance yesterday.If you haven't looked at this cartridge I would encourage you to. It has some great images as well as phrases on it. All the phrases have a shadow. There is also some great tags on the cartridge. Anyway back to the card. I asked my son to pick out an image he wanted me to cut and make a quick card out of. He chose this cute little penguin on page 57 of the handbook. My card base is 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" and cut from some white card stock. The light blue snowflake paper is a scrap from my stash and was cut at 4" X 5 1/4". I cut the penguin and all his layers at 3 1/2". The sentiment is from page 33 of the hand book. I cut the sentiment it's layer and shadow all at 1 1/4". Again, I just used some scraps from my stash. I added some stardust Stickles to the white lettering on the sentiment as well as the trim on the hat and the lollipop. Once the stickles dried on the lollipop I added some Glossy Accents to give it a little more dimension and to help it look more like candy. I then added a button with some cord tied in a knot. I am pleased how the card turned out. Thanks for visiting!
