Queen for a Day

Now that the holidays are over and I am starting to get settled into being retired, I am finding my Crafty Mojo is coming back! YEAH.  I have been having a great time learning more about my Cricut Explore.  The card I made today I used the Print and Cut feature.  I have a quick video I did for you, I apologize that it ends so abruptly, I was having issues with my editing software.

My card base is a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" white card stock. I added a black mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4". Next I added a piece of patterned paper cut at 3 7/8" X 5 1/8".  My image is cut from the Paisley cartridge at 4".  I decided I wanted to mount the cat on the card on something so I went to the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge and cut this mat and it's shadow out at 4".  The top mat is a shiny light gray color.  I mounted the mat to the card with some foam tape and then added my cat.  My sentiment is stamped in Memento Tuxedo black ink and is from the This and That CardzTV stamp set.  To finish the card I added some yellow stickles to the cat's crown, color and the trim around her pink pillow.

Thanks for stopping by.
