Fun with Create a Critter 2! :)

I am so excited to share with you the first card I made using the new Create a Critter 2 cartridge! It is for this week's Card Creating Tuesday at My Cricut Craft Room. :)

Create a Critter 2 was released by Provo Craft last Thursday (September 6th) but for some reason Joann's had them on their shelves a week early! I was so excited to hear it, and when I called my local Joann's to see if they had it in stock, I almost had a heart attack when they said it was there! I hung up the phone and got in the car to go pick it up. :) It was on sale for $34.99, and I don't normally pay that much for cartridges, but this one was so, so worth it.

The cartridge contains some of the favorites from the original CAC, along with a few new critters as well. This one is much more seasonal than CAC, and a lot of the critters have cute outfits/accessories that go along with the seasons. I just can't get enough of it! For my first card, I used my favorite critter... the penguin!

My 3D item is the flower/asterisk shape cut from the Artiste cartridge. For the center I cut an image from Elegant Edges (the same one that's behind the penguin, just smaller) and stamped it with a CTMH stamp that goes along with the Artiste cartridge. This is one of my favorite cards I've made! 

Come see what other cards the design team created for this week's Card Creating Tuesday!
