"What's Your Age" My Craft Spot Challenge




Hello everyone! It's time for a new challenge at My Craft Spot! This time the challenge is Birthday "What's Your Age?" You must include a number in your project.
The first thing I want to say about this card is, CAN YOU BELIEVE I DID A CRITTER CARD WITHOUT PEACHY KEEN FACES???  LOL! But it sure did turn out cute even without  PK faces. I did this card with my nephew in mind. He won't be 1 until October, but at least I'm ahead of the game with a card already done.
I started this card by using my Gypsy and welding all the mat pieces together where I wanted them on my card. I then welded a square to the left side of my card so it would be one piece. Then I proceeded to cut all the layers for each cut. I mounted the #1 on pop dots to make it stand out and added a strip of decorative paper to the side and stamped the sentiments. The inside sentiment I stamped strategically to be behind the front of the card.

SUPPLIES
My Craft Spot- Birthday Wishes Stamp Set
Cricut Carts- Create A Critter: giraffe, hippo, palm tree. Sweethearts: monkey. Paper Doll Dress Up: grass. Birthday Bash: Number 1.
I hope you all will play along in the challenge. Please don't forget to check out what the rest of the DT has created for your inspiration. I can't wait to see what you'll create! Have a great day!
