Pink Hippo!

Hello my friends! I have a cute card for you today that I made with my Cricut!! I love my Cricut, but I don't use it as often I want to. So, recently I found the "Cricut Circle Blog", they have weekly and monthly challenges with great prizes :), so I got motivated and I made this cute card.
Few weeks ago, my husband got me this cartridge, isn't he sweet? This is "Create a Critter" cartridge, since I have it I wanted to create something with the hippo, and here you have it, a Pink Hippo!!

The challenge for this week is to create a project using: Pink, Ruffles, Scallops, Flourishes, Glitter and Jewels ( incorporate any 3 on your project)

So, here is my card:

  • Make card from cardstock.
  • Mat together dark pink cardstock and patterned paper. Add stitches
  • Create ruffles with ribbon.
  • Add flourishes (Made it with Stretch your Imagination cartridge)
  • Create hippo (Using Create a Critter cartridge), ink edges and add it to card with foam tape.

Card Recipe:
  • Cardstock: Light Pink, Dark Pink (DCWV), Chocolate Brown, Bubblegum (GKD)
  • Paper: Just dreamy Collection (My Mind's Eye)
  • Cartridges: Create a Critter, Stretch your Imagination (Provo Craft)
  • Ink: Pink (SU)
  • Embellishments: Bright Pink Ribbon (Offray), Bright Pink Rhinestones (Kaisercraft).
  • Accessories: Sewing machine, Cricut machine (Provo craft), foam tape, Adhesive ( Love my tapes)
Hope you like it.
Have a great day :)
