So what showed up in my inbox last Friday? A challenge at CAS-ual Fridays for a shaped card. Yikes...that meant probably no straight edges. Today, one of my favorite bloggers Christina of Creations with Christina made a shaped card using her Gypsy and I thought to myself, "Self...you can do that!"
I ended up making these two little cards:
Both were made for enclosures for baby gifts.
The first one was made with cards stock scraps I had in my scrap box. Some Core'dinations cardstock and some Bazzill were used for the little zebra. I used a little tag I had and stamped "Sweet Baby" which is a Paper Trey Ink sentiment from the Mega Messages set. He has a little Bazzill bling for eyes.
You can see the cute little zebra a little closer here:
The second one shown below was done with the Baby Steps Cartridge (another newer cartridge):
I had not used the Stork's Delivery Cartridge before so this is another one knocked off my Personal Cricut Challenge! Yay!!! I will come back to this, though...it's a great cartridge and I need to look at it a bit more closely.
And my dear friends...that is it for today I think! Hope you all are staying cool...we are having a huge heat wave in the south here....I think today is going to be worse than yesterday with temps in the mid 90s. And of course here in Atlanta we have HUMIDITY! It is oppressive but I try not to complain too much as I'd rather have it hot any day as opposed to that cold that some parts of this country get!
