Day 12 of 14 Days of Valentines: Valentine Blog Hop and GIVEAWAY!

It is the start of the Valentine Blog Hop here at Princess And The Paper! We are going to have so much fun! My project is a card that says "Love Moo" with the Create a Critter Cartridge! I thought this was so stinkin' cute! I hope you all do too and decide to make this card too! Here is the recipe!
Create a Critter Cricut Cartridge (Cow cut at 3 1/2 inches)
Red cardstock for background
Heart Dot Cuttlebug folder (only embossed on half)
Love Moo Sentiment printed from the computer
Black Studio G ink to ink around the sentiment


Isn't this card just ADORABLE??? Here are some tips when cutting the cow and making this card.
TIPS
The cow layer 1 is really layer 2 and layer 2 is layer 1.
All you have to do is draw an arrow so you can remember. I know I mentioned this on my first UStream, but I am mentioning it again in case you missed it.
I had to make the heart dot only go half of the way (or if you want to get technical 3/4's) because it would look wrong if I didn't. It would go the way of a vertical card and not horizontal if that makes sense.


Giveaway!!!

Loving the hop thus far--I'm kinda going out of order, but will make sure to hit everyone. The cow is fast becoming my favorite CAC cut. Happy Valentine's Day!

Ellen ♥ CardMonkey said...

I love Moo too, and CAC. I'm going to run up to the Craft Zone this afternoon and use your idea though I'm going to affix Mr.Moo's head to the card with an Action Wobble. I just got in my pack of those, so let's see how they work! TYFS... I just became a follower and I look forward to seeing more of your work!
