Party Time with Rex

Hello Crafty Friends!

I have a great card today and the reason I say it is great is because it is my first easel card. I have seen so many fantastic ones and it has been on my "to-do list" to try for a while. After my 13 year old daughter made one, I was determined to get one done too. Now that I have made my own, I plan on making more. It was super easy.

I combined it with Jenny's (from Crazy About Cricut) Disney Monday. Rex was actually in Toy Story, but Disney owns Pixar. I think this card would be perfect for a birthday invitation or a play date. Unfortunately, my kids are a little older so we will not be using it for that. I will save it for someone who has a little boy and enjoys dinosaurs.

 Helpful Tip:
I cut out the small pieces (white teeth, green spots, and white eyes)  twice, so I have more to choose from. Sometimes the small pieces do not cut smoothly and this way you can choose the best ones.
 I dabbed glue with my MS glue pen on the base paper and then used my Cricut hook to lay the small pieces. This hook is super easy to use because of its fine tip and easy to clean off excessive glue.

  9. This is such a cute card. I have found that my favorite type of card is the easel. People comment on how difficult it looks although it is not hard at all.

    Now that vacation is almost over, I hope you have a great new year.
