CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Autumn Leaves "Mindy's Zoo" Stamp
  • DCWV - "Blossom" Paper Stack
  • Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Olive
  • CuttleBug - Paper Lace II Folders
  • Cardstock: blue white light green
  • Black Stamping Ink
  • Scissors

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Cut out a square card from "Just Because Cards".

Hint: I used the yellow paper from DCWV's "Blossom" stack.
Weld together two square borders from "Elegant Cakes", using the gypsy or CCR. Cut the border from blue cardstock. Trim off one end with scissors, and line it up with the edge of the card.
On a square of white cardstock, stamp the baby lion from "Mindy's Zoo" clear stamp set in black. Color the lion in using chalk.

Hint: I used a pale orange color for the body, light and dark brown for the mane, and pink for the nose and ears. You may also use colored pencils or markers to give it some dimension! You may also want to add grass by making short lines in various shades of green chalk.
Create a frame for the lion by placing one square inside of another larger one on CCR or using the gypsy.

Hint: I used the stripe pattern from DCWV's "Blossom" stack.
Cut out the phrase "Welcome Baby" from the "Holiday Cakes" cartridge in blue (or make your own out of any font by welding the letters together)!
Using the "Create A Critter" cartridge, cut out the grass patch from the accessories section in a light green. Ink the edges if you wish with distress ink and/or emboss using Cricut's Cuttlebug

Hint: I used the Cuttlebug Paper Lace II folder for embossing the grass and Tim Holtz's olive distress ink.
