Exploring Cricut ~ Lori Had a Little Lamb

Welcome to another fun Exploring Cricut post!  Today I am sharing a quick and easy Christmas card using one of Cricut's recent releases, A Quilted Christmas.  And everyone knows I am a sucker for a sheep image...


I cut my image at 4.5 inches and ran my white layer through my Xyron. I then slathered the sticky side with white flocking. Poor little sheep must be losing her wool since I can see a few "bald spots" on her rump. **snort**

I then cut two layers of holly, shaping the top layer with a stylus before adding with dimensional foam. A bit of holly berries are glued on top. I eliminated the bell cut from this image and glued on a gold jingle bell of my own. I decided my little sheep was a girl so she received a festive red hair bow!

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to check out the Exploring Cricut site daily for fun projects. And be sure to check out our Disney Dreaming challenge! Blessings...

Ooh, this is stunning! I love sheep too and this one is exceptional - even with the bald spots - more realistic!
Great design and this cart may have to go on my wish list!

Haha!! Maybe she didn't want to be sheared. I think she is darling. Love the added bell and bow.
