Boo! To You Cricut Autumn Celebrations Card

Another project from the Cricut Autumn Celebrations cartridge!  You guys are going to laugh when you hear this...when I got this cartridge back in the summer to preview, I thought this little monster card was SO CUTE!  So, I immediately rushed to make it (monster card and monster cut at 4-1/2" and layered), forgetting that it was the dead of summer and NO ONE would need a "Boo" card for months.
So, I get on the phone to tell Melanie about my projects and as I'm telling her which ones I cut, I'm realizing that this is not going to work.  I can't be showing Halloween cards in the middle of June!  So, it went into the storage box, awaiting this moment.  And I proceeded to cut a more generic "Count Your Blessings" card...LOL!
Sorry he's a little bent - being shut up in that box for so long warped him..  I used DCWV glitter and regular paper, a white Signo pen for detail and wiggle eyes.

Autumn Celebrations is available at many online retailers.

Sue Alger said...

Monster so cute. I actually find the best time to make a card when you don't really need it. I create these cards when I get a creative spurt and put them in my "file" for future use. Often times, I forget that I've made them and when I find them later I'm surprised.

Northwoodszoo said...

I know some cute little monsters who will love this cute little monster card! And never worry about being TOO early to show us something for next season -- gets the juices flowing (and sometimes takes me that long to get going on the projects!)
