From Someone Who Carrots For You Clip It Up Easter Card

Created this Clean & Simple Easter card using
Cricut & Sizzix. Used the Cricut for the Carrot
from Create a Critter cartridge to stamp the
sentiment on it. Used Sizzix dies for bunny &

Discovered that the carrot top does not fit the
carrot base & is instead for the carrot layer 1
which has the face. Found this out before cutting
by moving the layer over the base. I could have
used the carrot layer 1 and used Gypsy to hide face
but would have had to cut more pieces to get what
needed to be green & orange.

Duplicated the Carrot base for 2 images one in
orange & one in green with 2nd image flipped &
moved to top of screen so as to not have to cut all
of carrot and I trimmed the carrot top
. Used a pink paper clip to attach Carrot with stamped sentiment to ribbon.
