Cricut Valentine – And All that Jazz

The exclusive Cricut Circle Animal Antics cartridge offers a whole lot of goodness.  Including a saxophone playing alligator with a beret.   Loved it – and love the fun and whimsical things one can do using one cut to inspire the remainder of a card.

And here it is:

Cricut Valentine

I cut the gator at 3″ tall and the Eiffel Tower is from Every Day Pop Up at 3.75″ tall.  I replaced the musical notes with hearts (with Glossy Accents) from the Cricut Craft Room Basics.  The hearts measure .35″ tall.  I trimmed the snowy base at .5″ wide and used scissors to add the wavy hills.   The stamp “happy valentines day” is from Avocado Arts.

The black and white patterned paper used Spellbinders Labels Nine Nestabilities die.  The Eiffel Tower and the gator are adhered to the label.  The label is attached to the card via an Action Wobble spring.  The background paper is from Basic Grey and it is cut at 5.25″ by 4″.  The A2 card is from Memory Box (in Licorice).

The inside of the card is also a Spellbinders Label Nine and the sentiment uses Lettering Delight’s Sundae font.  I used Silhouette’s Print and Cut feature to make the sentiment and added a heart from the Cricut Craft Room Basics.  The Animal Antics file included a similar phrase but I preferred the sentiment to be printed rather than cut.
