Cricut Create a Critter Ladybug ~ Valentine’s Day Card

Hey everyone,

Today I’m sharing a Valentine’s Day card inspired by Cardz TV Anything Goes Challenge # 31 and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. I’m getting a little better with implementing my Cricut Explore Air 2 in my crafting and card making and this card was created with the help of my Cricut Explore Air 2.

The ladybug is cut from the Create a Critter Cricut Cartridge and red, pink and black cardstock. I cut the ladybug image at 2 5/16 x 3 3/8 and adhered all of the pieces with liquid glue.

Working on the card base, I cut a piece of red cardstock down to 5 x 5 and adhered the panel to the card base. Using the teal hearts patterned paper from My Favorite Things, I die cut a stitched scalloped square slightly smaller than the red card panel.
Next, I cut a heart and added it with some fun foam for dimension. And finally, I added the ladybug and the sentiment from Pink & Main’s Lil’ Love Bug with foam adhesive for dimension.

As a final touch, with a white gel pen I added the faux stitched lines around the heart and the red base panel with a few red enamel dots to complete this adorable ladybug Valentine’s Day card.

As always, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Cricut Valentine’s Sweets Lovers Silhouette Valentine’s Day Card

Hey everyone,

For Christmas 2016 (1 year ago) I received a Cricut Explorer Air 2, and it seems as though I have not had enough use of it since I got it. But as one of my New Year’s resolutions, I am going to learn and create more with my Cricut Explorer Air 2.

Using a Circuit cartridge called Valentine’s Sweets, I made this Valentine’s Day inspired card using one of the images. The original image is a two layer cut with the lovers nested in a heart outline.
I decided to cut the lovers silhouette in black and add a red heart shaped doily to the background. The focal image complements the patterned piece of paper very well and I love the simplicity of this card. I chose not to add a sentiment because I think that it would get lost in the card and when I am ready to send this card out I can pick a perfect sentiment for the inside.
