The project I have here today is an invitation for my little girl's 4th Birthday party...the theme, of course, is Little Mermaid. Luckily a few months back I was able to purchase the Dreams Come True and Happily Ever After Cricut cartridges from Cricut.com for only $22.49 each!!! I know I got a major deal and when I saw it I knew I had to jump on it and I am so glad now that I did. Not only is my little girl having a Little Mermaid birthday party she dressed up as Ariel for Halloween, so I will be getting good use of the cartridge. Plus she is much more interested in the Disney princesses than my older daughter ever was.
The invitation measures 8.5 x 5.5...I knew I was going to have to make it big because of all the little cuts for Ariel and I was right. I couldn't even use the parts to the eyes or lips...I had to use makers and pens to color them in, and that was even cutting her out at 4.25 inches. I still think she turned out beautiful though.
I used Martha Stewart glitter for Ariel's tail and a Martha Stewart corner punch from the Deco Fan punch around set for the information part of the invitation. Lastly I used Studio G foam dots behind Ariel to give the invitation some dimension.
I am entering my invitation in the following challenges:
- Exploring Cricut - Cricut Choice - 1 pattern paper, 2 Cricut cuts, 3 different colors
- Craftin Desert Divas - Anything Goes Linky Party
- Fantabulous Cricut - Challenge #185 - Anything Goes
- DL ART- Thankful Thursday - November Linky
