Exploring Cricut ~ Daily Project!

Good Friday morning to ya! I am so excited to have a Cricut Expression that works! After taking a forced sabbatical from Cricuting I am finally back in action. And today I am popping with a fun and funky daily project for Exploring Cricut. This isn't my normal "frilly" creation. I pulled out a sorely neglected cartridge, Nifty Fifties for this one. And my creation is one COOL cat...



My base is white card stock cut to create a 4 1/4 x 5 1/4 inch card. I used Provocraft's Spots & Dots Embossing Folder for some pizzaz. The kitty was cut at 4 1/4 inches (black card stock) and then run through a xyron to make it tacky. I then covered the cat with black flocking. Because the cat was relatively small, I opted to cut pink for the ears and nose only (4 1/4 inches also). A few white pearls add a fun "collar" for my feline friend. The aqua base is also 4 1/4 inches. But the word cool which I pulled from the phrase "cool cat" is only 2 inches. I attached everything with dimensional foam for depth. So cool! (Sorry, I couldn't resist!) Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

I love the card. I have a weakness for anything with a kitty on it.

Nice kitty! Like the pearl collar.
I bet you could do ones like the Siamese cats in Lady and the Tramp. LOL
