Of course, mommy did most of the designing, but my two-year old son is getting quite proficient at loading the cutting mat for me! He wants to pretend "JonJon's cricut" while I'm working, so I now have to be sure the power cord is unplugged when not in use.
Here's our resulting easel card:
- Card Base - Easel Card (5x5")
- Papers - striped paper from My Mind's Eye: Magnolia; textured cardstock by The Paper Studio; all others from scrap
- Cricut Cuts - all cuts from Create a Critter; tigers are <cat1> on page 29; flag from page 28 without Layer 1; sentiment from page 49 (phrase); letters for "GRRREAT" from Opposites Attract using both Opposite and Opposite Shadow functions.
- Cuttlebug Embossing - Dots & Spots on green background layer
- Other - doodling and faux stitching with white Gelly Roll pen; inside sentiment printed with my computer; pop dots elevate tigers, flag, and "GRRREAT" sentiment.
My son created artwork with his crayons to insert into the envelope, too. (Just like Mommy, he does his best work in PJs and with a snack. See the rogue animal cracker?)
I also wanted to do a handprint with him, but it just wasn't happening this morning. He's usually super eager to get into my ink pads, but I guess the Terrible Twos were rearing their ugly head.
Hubby will be away on his mission trip on Fathers Day, so I'm packing this card in his luggage for him to open Sunday. I hope it makes him feel loved even when away from us on dads' day.
