Male Birthday Card

Here is a birthday card I made for my boss.  It is a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" card.  All cardstock used is Recollections.  The black layer on the front is 5 3/8 x 4 1/8" and the blue layer is 5 1/4 x 4".  I used the Everyday Paper Doll Cricut cartridge to cut the motorcycle at 3" high, the large clouds at 2" high, the small cloud at 1 3/4" high and the road at 5" wide.  The grass behind the motorcycle was cut at 5" wide using the Martha Stewart All Occasions Cake Art Cricut cartridge.  The blue layers and all cuts were inked using the CTMH Grey Wool Exclusive Ink pad.  I also added yellow buttons (3 Birds Cute As A Button kit) to the center of the tires. The sentiment is from the CTMH Card Chatter - Birthday stamp set, and was stamped using CTMH Archival Black Exclusive Ink pad.

Teddy Bears in Oz Blog Hop

Welcome to the Teddy Bears in Oz Blog Hop. You should have arrived here from A Day In The Life of a Horse Bunny. We are featuring teddy bears created from the Cricut Lite cartridge Teddy Bear Parade dressed as characters from The Wizard of Oz. Fun right? If you are just joining us, start your journey down the yellow brick road at RockinRenee's blog, I came, I saw, I created.

The character I am sharing with you today is the Scarecrow. The Scarecrow and clothes/accessories were cut a 4". The clothes used were for the Farmer, the hat and broom bottoms used as straw were for the Witch and the diploma is for the Graduate. All solid cardstock is Recollections, and the patterned papers used for the overalls is from the CTMH Dotty For You paper pack.  Here is my finished Scarecrow bear:

Don't you think it's cute that he's carrying a diploma? Guess he finally received his brain.

Thank you for joining us today. The complete file to recreate The Wizard of Oz character bears can be found at the starting blog. Your next visit down the yellow brick road is at Sara W Andrews.
