Spotlighting My Craft Spot ~ Post #2

Good Morning!

It's Monday so that means is is time for a "Challenge Me Monday" challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. For this week's challenge we are asking that you make some kind of shaped card. There are so many Cricut cartridges that have shaped cards that you can use or it you have a Gypsy or Design Studio you can create your own shaped card. I decided that that I would create my own.

I am also sharing my second card that I made using hand-dyed Crinkle Ribbon from My Craft Spot. We featured My Craft Spot in our "Spotlight Sunday" post over at FCCB. You can check that out -HERE.
I created this shaped card using my Gypsy. I used the Create A Critter Cricut cartridge for this sweet little lamb. I took 2 shadow images at 3.94 inches flipped one vertically and welded them at the head. I then cut out another shadow image so that I could layer that on top so the the fold would be hidden. All other layers were also cut at 3.94.
Here you can see a close up of that adorable face! I used Ranger Glossy Accents on the eyes and nose to give them a little shine and dimension.
I stamped my sentiment on the inside of this cute little card.

Here is what I used to create this card:
Cricut Cartridge ~ Create A Critter - lamb cut at 3.94
Peachy Keen Stamps ~ PK 757 Wide Eyed and Bushy Tailed Face Assortment
My Craft Spot ~ Hand-dyed Crinkle Ribbon in Petal Pink
Pink By Design Stamps ~ Country Living
Stampendous Fun Flock ~ Cotton Ball White
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder ~ D'Vine Swirls
Ranger Glossy Accents
Martha Stewart Baker's Twine
Sakura Gelly Roll Pens ~ Black and White
Pop dots, Glue dots, and ATG
