Yeti Birthday Card

It's my DT day over at My Craft Spot and I'm sharing a fun card I made for a colleague (who has become a good friend too).  We have a running joke between us about yetis and mustaches - so I made her a card with a yeti with a mustache!  I love being about to use my Cricut and Silhouette to make such personalized creations.

The yeti is from Campin' Critters (as is the mustache), although I brought the images into my Silhouette software in order to easily add the mustache to create an offset shadow.  I used the Fancy Edges metal dies set to cut the purple layers at the bottom of my card, embossing the top layer with Cuttlebug's Spots and Dots folder.

The sentiment is from Stamping All Around Spring - as are the footprints.  (They're supposed to be for sweet baby feet but they go well with the Big Foot idea too!!)  I used three different dies from the Tiny Doilies metal dies set for my sentiment as well.

I finished my card by adding some Perfectly Purple sequins.  Tiffany LOVES her card and has it display on her desk.

Thanks for visiting!  Have a wonderful day!

My dear friend, I'm always one happy camper when you post! :o) Your creative projects just bring a smile to my face! (As well as everyone else's!) The sweet inspiration is evident, as it is obvious this adorable yeti came about for a reason! The purple shoes, fun sentiment (LOVE that you used the huge and baby feet for the yeti!), and whimsical background are sure to be treasured long after your friend's special day. Amazing design as always, Kate! Have a blessed and beautiful weekend!

Hugs and blessings,

I'm glad you explained the reason behind the yeti. He's cute but not something one would ordinarily put on a card. You've put so many details on the card that make it special.
