MCCR Letter of the day "K"

     Good morning and welcome to my blog, for today is My Cricut Craft Room's Letter of the Day Monday.  Today we create a project with a Cartridge starting with the letter "K", or create a project with a Die cut starting with the letter "K".

     I do not own a cartridge yet starting with the letter "K", so my project starts with the letter.  Well who doesn't love fuzzy, cute little Koala's  flying Kites?

     Well I know I do, I am a fan of Koalas, they are so darn adorable with their cute lil' noses and their fuzzy little bodies:))   For the card today I used the Create a Critter cartridge, love this one, it is a go to cartridge, and the Cricut Sampler.  I decided to use the papers from DCWV Sweet Stack, Core'dianltions. and Close To My Heart's Dotty For you.

      The Koala was cut at 3" and all the accessories were cut to fit.   I used CTMH Dotty for You for the Bear and the conversation bubble mat. Core'dinations for the card base and mats.  I used a white and a black gel pen to do faux stitching.  I added a butterfly to the bubble and some rhinestones for bling:)

    Then for a little surprise for the recipient....inside I made it a pop-up!!


     I thought this would be fun. I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the top of the 8x5 3/4 mat on the inside. cut out 2 kites in coordinating colors and the phrase missing you from the Sampler cartridge, cut at 2 and 1/2 I believe.  Of course in making I also used pop dots, ATG gun and zig pen.  Here are 2 other views.

     Well, that is it:, I hope you liked today's project.  Please come back again, and I hope you will follow me if you do:)  Have a great day!!
