So, a client of mine (I'm a massage therapist) bought a gift certificate for his wife. I like to create hand made gift certificates, so I asked what were her likes. He said she always wanted a baby tiger. Well, the only baby tiger image I had on my Cricut cartridges was baby Tigger. But, isn't he cute!!
I first made him using the Tigger colors, but I think he looks more like a tiger using "real tiger" colors. Either way, she loved it. And, I love cutting Pooh images. This Tigger is from the Pooh Font cartridge. It has such cute "baby" pooh cuts!! Funny story ... I had the stripes and base color for Tigger reversed and he looked odd to me, but I couldn't determine why. My dd looked at it and at once replied, "you have the stripes in the wrong color!" DUH!!! So, I actually cut Tigger THREE times ....
The baby Tigger has a duck in front of him. I used my Gypsy to hide the duck and pond cuts. The other funny thing is, when I went to cut the layers, I did not realize that the "water" layer was actually water. I kept trying to put the water on Tigger!!! That's one of the problems with the Gypsy, you need a bigger magnifier sometimes. But, I finally hunted for the cut on line and realized my error. Made a huge difference ...hahaha!!! (Maybe I just need to break down and get some glasses!)
The corners are cut using a Fiskers corner punch. The actual gift card holder was cut from Cindy Loo. I sometimes forget this cartridge has this useful cut! I used my Gypsy to hide the inside cut marks and simply used glue dots to place my certificate on the inside.
The cupcake is from Once Upon a Princess, cut at 2.32".
I cut Make a Wish using Gypsy Font, cut at 1". I used the shadow cut as well. (LOVE it when a font has a shadow!!)
Wish I had used some wider ribbon, but this was all that I could find in my stash. (Guess my stash needs to grow!!!)
THANKS for LOOKING and come visit again soon!!
