My Cricut Craft Room - Letter of the Day

Hi Crafty Friends,
Today at My Cricut Craft Room is Letter of the's letter is N.  N was a hard, but then I found Nuts about U on Create A Critter and knew I had to create the Squirrel.  We get quite a few squirrels that visit our backyard and every time we see one my hubby and I stop what we are doing and say Squirrel just like the talking dog in the Disney movie Up.  Cracks me up every time. :)

On to the details of my card. 
I created an A2 size card 4.25 x 5.5. 
The Squirrel is selected using Feature Layer 1, 2, & 3 and cut at 3.25 
Using my Gypsy I created an acorn border by welding 5 acorns together, these were cut at 1.73.

For the inside of my card I cut the sentiment using the Phrase Feature.
This is cut at 3.25.

The paper used is from the 6.5 x 4.5 DCWV The Pets Stack.

I have to be honest...I'm not too nuts over how this card turned out.
I think it's that blue polka dot paper on my squirrel that I don't love.
I guess you can't love them all.

Please make sure to go to My Cricut Craft Room to see what other wonderful creations were made for this Letter of the Day.

Thanks for stopping by,
