OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • red pink and black markers
  • glue pen
  • glue
  • red pink & white cardstock
  • Decorative valentine cardstock
  • black brown & tan cardstock

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Cut Create a Critter (CaC) peanut shadows out of brown, layer 1 out of tan. Feel free to cut the number and respective size of peanuts to fit your family. Glue layer 1 on top of shadow. Cut wagon wheels (sugar and spice), top hat (peanut accessory), and small bow (CaC porcupine accessory) out of black. Cut Wagon (sugar and spice), and top hat ribbon (peanut accessory) out of red. Cut wagon layer (sugar and spice), bigger bow (CaC porcupine accessory) and little dress (sugar and spice- toddler 2 layer with modification) out of decorative paper. After all pieces are cut glue them accordingly on the peanuts.

*Note: In Cricut Craft Room the edit and contour feature allows you to select out pieces on any given layer. The toddler 2 layer modification was the removal of a circle that was on the layer.
Cut your card, composed of two welded rounded rectangles, and various heart sizes out of red cardstock. For these hearts use the heart layer 1 in CaC and modify it in CCR by removing the mouth and eyes. Then cut We Are (Cricut font and basic shapes-stretch font), scalloped square (small) and oval (Cricut Craft Room Basics), and nuts about u (CaC Phrase without shift) in white. Then weld n-u-t-s (Cricut font and basic shapes-shadow) together for the front of the card and cut that along with We Are (Cricut font and basic shapes-stretch font shadow), scalloped square (large), nuts ( CaC Phrase with shift and modified by removing the u and the oval it is inside) and lastly hearts following the same instructions as with the red hearts but cut in pink.
Then out of the decorative paper cut the u encased in the oval (CaC Phrase with shift but modified by removing the nuts), n-u-t-s for front page (Cricut font and basic shapes-basic) and hearts made by same instruction as the red and pink. Glue all cut layers as seen in the attached pictures.
Then after everything is glued down make little hearts with your pink and red markers by hand in random places. If you like you can take a black marker and draw eyelashes on mom :) As you can see she was given little red heart earrings as well. Then take the red marker and by hand outline paper where it is seen in the pictures to add depth. Make sure you havent had too much coffee because shaky hands could mess up your work pretty quickly.
