Cricut Make a Splash card



Quick and Easy card Monday


Hello, friends!

Today, the Bitten By the Bug challenge has an April Showers theme. 

I thought it would be fun to do a card with rain boots from the Freshly Picked cartridge. Then, I thought I needed a puddle for my little boots to be jumping in, so I searched Design Space. Create A Critter had one that was just perfect. The cut had a few extra layers that I did not need, so I hide those layers and just cut the puddle itself. 

The sentiment was stamped using the Rainy Day stamp set (perfect, right!). At this point I liked the card, but thought it needed so droplets from the splashing. I remembered that the Rain or Shine stamp set had little rain droplets that fit the bill. 

This card does not have many layers, so it was pretty quick and easy to make. I think those little rain boots with the flowers are just the cutest things!

If you have a Cricut Explore, here is the file: Cricut Make a Splash card

If you don't have an Explore, I cut the rain boots (from Freshly Picked) out at 3" and the water (Create A Critter) was cut out at 1".

See you back here tomorrow with a new video!

Like the rainboot card. Not to go off subject but I have been looking to buy rain boots and no stores have them. Only have found them online. Well, I want to try some on first to know what size which I've been told can be different than reg shoe size one wears. The ones I like are expensize and I had no idea that they can be so pricey. I just want some plain looking rain boots but not the short kind.

That's so cute! And cutting the patterned paper on an angle really adds interest. Thanks for the inspiration!
