Happy Birthday Beaver Card

Hello there.  I wanted to share with you a card I made today.   This little guy has skills.  He is confident, colorful, and goofy...all the attributes an animated beaver should possess, I suppose.  Here are some details to the card:
  • Cricut Cartridges Used:  Birthday Bash, Wild Card
  • Paper:  Walmart brand cardstock
  • Patterned Argyle Diamonds:  Cuttlebug mini polka dots
  • Juggling Balls & buttons:  Tree House Studio pom-poms
  • Outside Orange "stitching":  free-hand using Creative Memories bold tip markers
I love making brightly colored cards, but I can tell you that gluing this one down was not a cinch.  I used Scotch fast-drying glue, some Elmer's spray adhesive, and Elmer's glue dot runner.  In the end, I had to hot glue the balls, as they kept falling off.  So the weight on this card is half glue!

I hope you like my card.  Thanks for looking :)
