Happy Fathers Day

Card Making with Cricut (Annie's Attic: Paper Crafts)I'm off to my parents house this morning, the children have celebrated Father's day with Alan and he has gone sailing. the rest of us will travel to see my Dad and Mum.

I made this 4 1/2" card first.

I couldn't cut the matching envelope on the Cricut Create (I need the Expression!). So I then made the slightly smaller owl at 4".

Here is card and envelope together.

The outside of the envelope.

The open envelope showing the beauty of using these double sided papers from Basic Grey's Max and Whiskers Collection. I used large gems for the pupils and mounted the eyes on 3D foam pads.

I made these owl cards using the 'Wild Card' Cricut Cartridge. My Cricut cart collection has grown over the last few weeks owing to my big birthday. I had this super book 'Card Making with Cricut' from Alan together with the 'Wild Card' cart.

He also got me the 'Wild Card' Cartridge as this is used for many of the projects in this book.

My Friends Linda and Jill gave the the paper dolls carts. Thank you to all. x
All three available from Cardinal Colours.

Just need some time to play with them all now!
