St Patrick's Day Card

 I made this Elmo St. Patrick's Day card using the new Cricut Sesame Street Elmo and Friends Holiday cartridge.  One of my favorite things about this cartridge is the word art on it for all the holidays/seasons.

The word art on this cartridge would make great scrapbook titles or card phrases and includes the following (layered with a shadow): Be Mine, IHeartYou, Happy Valentine's Day, Hugs and Kisses, Best Friends, Cutie Pie, Sweetie, Happy Easter, Easter Bunny, Dyeing Eggs, Easter Egg Hunt, Easter Basket, Surprise!, Spring!, Happy St. Patrick's Day, Happy 4th of July, Independence Day, Fireworks, Uncle Sam, Trick or Treat, Happy Halloween, All Dressed Up, Happy Haunting, Goblins and Ghouls, Jack O Lantern, Pumpkin Carving, Boo!, Be Thankful, Happy Thanksgiving, Happy Holidays, Joy, Merry Christmas, Season's Greetings, Bah Humbug, Peace on Earth, Ho Ho Ho, Christmas List, Peace, For You, Happy Christmas, Celebrate, Decorate, Family, Best Wishes, Thanks, He He He, Love, Holiday, It's Your Day.
 This was a relatively easy layered Elmo to cut out.  Not too many detailed parts (those of you who have cut the Disney characters know what I'm talking about...) and easy to figure out.
Paper is by DCWV Lemon Flower stack.  Ribbon by Papertrey Ink.  You can see the Cricut Sesame Street Elmo and Friends Holiday cartridge handbook HERE.

I just got back from the Idaho Creative University scrapbook event and I'll be putting up some photos of the event and the projects in the coming days.  I had an amazing time - the best roommates and fantastic classes.  Everyone was GREAT!

  32. I have this cartridge and have never used it except for the words, well maybe once. It was so hard to make a cookie monster, that I gave up. You said Elmo was easy, so I will give it another try today. TFS the cute card.
