My Cricut Craft Room- Card Creating Tuesday

Welcome to Funky Cards and
 Card Creating Tuesdays

Good morning and welcome back to My Cricut Craft Room Card Creating Tuesdays.  I hope to inspire you with my work today and to encourage you to try something new! As you know, each week I will be sharing with you new cards that I have designed and adding a few tips that I have learned along the way. 
I am super excited that for the month of October, Ethan Pinter will be receiving the "I Feel the Love Project" cards to help him celebrate his 2nd birthday.  If you are not familiar with my project,  please click on the link to see what this is all about:)  I would love for you all to be a part of this!!!  The card I have designed today is the birthday card I will be sending to Ethan:) 

This adorable frog is holding a cupcake with the #2 to represent Ethan's 2nd birthday.  I chose to use greens and reds with a hint of blue because that says "all boy" to me!  And what boy doesn't love frogs?  I love the chunky look of the fonts that you can find on the Robtoz Cricut cartridge.  This is a font that you must explore if you haven't already done so!!

***Tip of the Day***
  If you missed my previous tips, you can click: 

***Today's tip- Modifying a cut.  If you have a design in mind but you don't have a Gypsy, you can still make things happen!!

Here is what the cupcake looks like on the From My Kitchen Cricut cartridge if you make it as is.

And here is what it looks like if you modify it for a specific card like I did.  The cherry and stem have been removed and the #2 have been added using the Simply Sweet Cricut cartridge.  Ethan is celebrating his 2nd birthday and I wanted a #2 on his cupcake not a cherry.  Easy enough!!  Don't be afraid to switch things up and use what you have:)

Thank you for stopping by!  Be sure to stop by My Cricut Craft Room to see what the other Design Team members have in store for you today at Card Creating Tuesdays:)
