Happy Friday! This card is from the new Animal Antics cartridge, which I am having a lot of fun with! On this card I decided to make the die cut bigger than the card. Kind of a cross between a regular card and a shape card. :)
I added a bit of glossy accents to the side of her head and to her bow.
The octopus was cut at 4.5 inches from the Animal Antics cratridge. (This cartridge is a Cricut Circle exclusive.) There are so many cute cuts out there on other cartridges that you could get the same look with.
I wanted this card to really pop, so I used A LOT of dimensionals. These are from Stampin' up and I love how thin they are - just right for lots of layers!
The sentiment is from the Thank You stamp set and I stamped the first in black and the second part in a rich red ink from Studio G. I added some white dots on her cheeks half way through taking pictures of this card. lol
I tied a button on with Natural Jute Twine. The card base (folded over) is 5 inches wide by 3 1/4 inches tall. I let the bottom border hang over about 1/4 inch on each side.
