I Lava U

I made this card for my daughter to give her boyfriend for Valentine's Day.  I have to say that the concept was her idea. I was thrilled when I found the volcano on my favorite cartridge Create A Critter!! I thought it turned out really cute and I used Create A Critter for all the cuts, which was really convenient.

I apologize that my picture is crooked.  I was rushing :(.  This is a 4.25" X 5.5" inch card with a kraft paper base. The volcano is on page 50, the shift image of the Create A Critter cartridge.  I did all the layers except the lava and gave "her" some eyelashes and some white dots to the eyes.  The cute dinosaur is on the next page, 51, and I cut all of his layers.  The grasses are cut from the shift feature on the Accessory key on pages 44 and 45.  The sun is from page 52 and I cut all the layers and added some pink to the cheeks. The hearts for the "lava" are from page 49 and are the shift feature of the Phrase key. 

For the inside I cut the phrase feature also from page 49 and added some stickers for the heart and the lava.

I am going to post this on the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog.  Their challenge this week happens to be using "puns".  So it worked out perfectly.

Thanks for coming by and y'all come back soon,

Cindy :)
