Here is my card for the current challenge at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog, which is to make a project that has something to do with being sick. I don’t know why, but this challenge stumped me. I couldn’t think of anything exciting that I wanted to make. I started several different projects before the light bulb finally went off and I had a clear vision of what I wanted to make.
The card base is Bazzill cardstock, the patterned paper is Basic Grey, and the solid that the turtle is cut from is Stampin’ Up. I cut the turtle using my Cricut and the Create a Critter cartridge. Since I am wishing the recipient a speedy recovery, I figured I needed to give my turtle some running shoes so she could speed things up a bit. I cut the shoes from My Community and laced them up with some white cording that I found in my stash. I used the Cuttlebug embossing folder Swiss Dots to emboss the bottom edge of her shoes. I also gave her a hat, which I cut from Paper Doll Dress Up. The label that the sentiment is printed on is from a Lite cartridge, Lacy Labels. I used Create a Critter for the flowers and the tufts of grass. I added pearls to the centers of the flowers.
The flowers on the inside of the card are also from Create a Critter.
