Here is a cute, pun-filled card made from the Cricut Lite Four Legged Friends (FLF) cartridge! This is my 3rd card made from FLF and I like the layering this cartridge provides because you can play with different colors and patterns. For this thank you card, I used the turtle image which was cut at 2.5 inches. The card base is 5×7.
All of the patterned card stock used on the turtle and background is from DCWV’s “Linen Closet Mat Stack with Glitter” which already comes in a 4.5 x 6.5 size which is perfect as a background mat for 5×7 cards. I used the blue striped mat for the first background layer and then added a trimmed down flower mat to the lower half of the card. I used white ribbon from American Crafts to hide the seam between the two mats. The buttons are from a variety pack from Hobby Lobby’s sewing department. I had fun with some sentiments too using my computer: “Just popping out to say Thank You!” and “We had a turtle-ific time!” For the front of the card, I used a ‘speech bubble’ shape from Word, added text, printed it on some scrap card stock, and then trimmed it with scissors. For the inside, I used cloud clip art from Word, typed the sentiment in 14 pt. Century Gothic font, and printed it on 4.5 X 6.5 cream card stock. I then added a strip of the flowery DCWV paper to coordinate with the front of the card. The turtle itself pops off the card thanks to foam tape. I really enjoyed using the “Linen Closet” paper stack for this card. It has a peaceful, dreamy effect with its pale blue and beige palette.
