I am so excited about the new Create A Critter 2 cartridge! The first Create A Critter was by far my most favorite/used/loved cartridge! So here is my entry for the design contest. I don't think this little squirrel could get any cuter!

Project Cut Files

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

I have provided the cut file I made using CCR to make the tri-fold card. File includes all of the pieces I used on the card except the rectangular background pieces on the two flaps and the scalloped circle with the stamped sentiment.
Cut out all pieces in the file.
Use the dark brown ink to ink all the edges of the layers
For front flap, red card stock was embossed and inked and embellished with dark brown ribbon. Squirrel was attached with foam tape for added dimension.
The second flap was covered with orange leaf motif scrapbook paper. Tree was adhered to flap and embellished with scalloped circle stamped with sentiment.
