Over The Moon Baby Shower Card

Hello everyone.  Welcome to this week's Bitten By The Bug 2 challenge.  My Design Team sister, the uber sweet Sharon, chose this week's challenge. Sharon has asked us to use a Cricut cut COW on our project this week. 

My mom and I are hosting a baby shower on the 25th so for my project this week, I designed this Over The Moon baby shower card.  I used five Cricut cartridges on this card:  Create a Critter (Cow), Nursery Rhyme (sentiment), Baby Steps (the crib and bottle), Formal Occasion (inside), and Cricut Craft Room Basic Shapes (welded rectangles).  

I started by cutting the two crib pieces in textured white card stock.  I used pop dots and assembled the two layers.  I then cut the bottom crib again, using the edit cut feature to remove the bars, and welded it to a rectangle to create the base card.  I attached the crib over the floral print base card.

I cut the baby bottle pieces, glued them together, and slid them into the top of the crib.

Using the Create a Critter cartridge, I cut the cow in three layers, plus accessories (face and udders).  I wanted my cow to be obviously girly so I gave her a white body with brown spots, trimmed in pink.  I think she is darling.  I glued her to the front of the crib.

The Over The Moon sentiment was cut using the Nursery Rhyme cartridge.  It is a darling cartridge for anyone scrappy for a baby or toddler!  I sized the cut to fill up the remaining crib area.

Inside the card I used a three layer cut from the Formal Occasion cartridge.  I like that this cut decorates the inside of the card yet leaves me plenty of space to add a personalized message.

I added buttons and white dashes to finish the front of the card.

I hope that you will consider joining us in this week's Bitten By the Bug 2 Cow Jumped Over the Moon challenge.  I would love to see your cow embellished projects!  Check the challenge rules on the side bar at BBTB2 and link in under this week's challenge.
