I love the Create A Critter Cricut Cartridge, and I’m starting to get addicted to Elegant Edges as well. I created this Hippo Birthday Card Using them.
Create A Critter has tons of fun animals including this cute hippo. Who wouldn’t like to receive this card wishing them a “Hippo Birthday”.
I find that I am more productive if I cut a bunch of shapes at one time. Then I have them all ready when I sit to make cards. It saves me a lot of time. So while I was creating, I also did these Elephant and Snail Cricut Cards.
I cut the base out of lavender Bazzill cardstock that matches the hippo. The patterned paper was in my stash, and I love the combination of pale yellow, lavender, and sage green. I also had green dotted paper in my stash that matched perfectly, so I used it to cut the scalloped oval using the Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge.
The Hippo Birthday stamp is from My Pink Stamper. I stamped it on lavender cardstock and punched it out with an oval punch. I matted it with a purple oval scalloped punch. Both punches are from Stampin’ Up.
Wiggly Eyes and Lavender Stickles Glitter Glue completed this Cricut Project.
The Create A Critter Cricut Cartridge has lots of fun animals perfect for making cards, scrapbook pages, and other paper crafts. Each animal also has fun accessories.
The Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge is great for creating background shapes for cards and scrapbook pages. There are also borders and shadows for the mats.
