Create-A-Critter Thanks!

I really wanted to make a card with the little skunk from the Create-A-Critter cricut cartridge. I cut the card base using the Just Because Cricut cartridge. The base was cut a 4 1/2" X 6" from cream card stock. from page 22 of the handbook. I used my Gypsy to resize the base to the size I wanted. I then cut the scalloped layer from the same page and again used my Gypsy to resize it to fit my card base. I then cut the smaller mat from page 38 of the handbook and resized it using my gypsy. I also used the hide contour feature to hide the core marks from the card base.  All of these layers were made using paper from the Flower Shower DCWV paper stack and card stock paper pad. I cut all the layers for the skunk on Create-A-Critter at 3". I gave him a white shadow, paper is from some a large pack of scraps that I bought at Craft Warehouse. I then cut the flower using the accessory creative feature key at 1 1/2". I added some doodle dots to the frame with my Martha Stewart opaque pen in white. I added some cotton candy stickles to the flowers to give it some added bling. The stamp is a clear stamp that I have and the ink is ColorBox pigment ink in Moss.
