Cricut 360 - Challenge #4 - The Great Outdoors

Good morning everyone,

It's Friday again and that means another fun challenge over at Cricut 360! So are you ready for this week’s challenge?! Our challenge this week is to create a card or layout with the "Great Outdoors" (Camping, Mountains, Or Farm) in mind and you can use any Cricut Cartridge for your project. So many of you are taking family vacations this time of year, why not get a jump start and do a layout for all those pictures you’ll be taking this summer. Perhaps, you need to work on having a few more of those last minute cards we always seem to need. What better challenge could there be than this one to get you all ready?! Still having a little trouble coming up with an idea? No problem, the Design Team and I have made some great projects and we would really love for you to come on over and check them out :0) I decided to go with a card this week and I really had a lot of fun making it. I really wanted to use my Create a Critter Cartridge. I just love this cartridge; there are so many cute little critters on here! So when I think of camping, I think of gathering by a fire and making s’mores….yumm!! So I came up with this cute little beaver roasting his marshmallow for a tasty and yummy s’more. Here are the details of my card:

Items Used
Cartridge Used: Create a Critter (Beaver, Fire logs, tree branch and flames)
Solid cardstock: Recollections
Patterned Paper: Recollections “The Great Outdoors”
Cuttlebug Folder: Forrest Branches

Stickles: Orange Peel & Yellow
Tulip Puffy Paint (Used it on his marshmallow, and then used my heat gun to give it a melted look)
White Gel Pen

So this week’s prize for one lucky winner is a super cute 6" Cricut Plush
Isn't he just the cutest?!
