Cooking With Cricut Wk 4

Hi Everyone! I hope you all enjoyed the sponsored challenge last week. This weeks Cooking With Cricut challenge is Leaves/Fall Foliage/Indian Summer. For my design team contribution, I made a card that uses the same Welcome Fall file from The Cutting Cafe that I used last week! I told you it has a great assortment of fall images and sayings. For tips on how to use their files with your Cricut, check out my new video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNo7TZjrIUk.

The leaves and the sentiment is from the Welcome Fall file. I didn't adjust the size on any of them...they just cut and printed perfectly the way that they were. If you haven't used their files before, there are some really good resources on their site. Also, I created a short video to show how I used them for this project.

When I saw how the leaves had the center cut I knew that I wanted to string them on a ribbon. I think next time I would place them a little bit differently, but I really think it worked well.

The squirrel is cut at 3 1/4 inches from the Create a Critter cartridge. I also used the flip feature to get him looking the direction I wanted. The acorns are also from Create a critter. The green background and dark brown cardstock is from DCWV Latte Stack.

Be sure to head over to Cooking with Cricut and participate this weeks challenge. Also, in a few weeks we will be doing a Blog Hop! It will be November 13th and 14th with a Holiday theme and giveaways!
