We Just Click

Get $100 OFF the Reconditioned Cricut Expression Machine!
     Good morning fellow crafters! I hope you all have warmed up a bit. I don't know about you but, here in the Northeast we have been gripped by a cold snap, brrrr!
     Today Erica asked the Design Team to create a project using a CCR exclusive cart. Provo Craft is sending the circle members (Yup I am one, lol) a new cart called Animal Antics. So we could get a chance to play before they send the cart out, they have been kind enough to add it to the CCR so today I decided to make a card using one of the images. I chose to use the penguin. Here it is....
     Isn't this just the cutest penguin you ever saw? I really love how jolly he looks and how about that camera? Let's start with the phrase. I chose the phrase feature for "We Just Click". I used the phrase feature + shift as well as the phrase shadow.
     The shadow was cut with red card stock, the phrase shift from silver and the phrase itself from black. This was all done @ 2.5" and went together really easy.Now for the cuteset penguin. Can you tell I love this little guy, lol?
     I think the part I love the best is the camera around his neck.This is just so cute with the phrase. All layers were cut @ 3.5". This was particularly helpful for the lens and flash on the camera. I added some liquid pearls for the "beak" and a metallic marker for the trim on the hat. This would be so cute as a birthday, friend or even Valentines' Day card.
     I thought I'd show you a screen shot from my CCR project:
This was from one layer. The left is the silver layer, right shadow layer in  red and the  lower right layer in black

This is what I started with before I decided to add another layer and cut things out separately. I like to see what the layers are for the cut before I move them around on my mat to place my colors. I hope this makes sense!

   Well that's it for today guys. Hope you enjoyed my little guy. I can see future projects with this cart!Be sure to head back over to My Cricut Craft Room and see what the rest of the team has to share with you today.
