I have had this checkered black and white paper for years and have really hated it but didn't want to toss it out. I thought that as soon as I did that, I would finally find a project that I could use it for. Finally that day came today when I was flipping through my Just Cards cartridge and seen the Feeling Sick? Milk It phrase.
I used the Just Because cricut cartridge. Honestly, I don't use this cartridge enough!!!! I cut the apple card shown on page 46 of the manual at 5 1/2" on Kraft cardstock from Recollections. I cut the border using Apple Shift also at 5 1/2" using black cardstock. I used the milk bottle and phrase on page 32 of the manual. The milk jug I cut first on black cardstock using Layer 1 at 5". I then cut Layer shift on white cardstock also at 5". The phrase was cut at 2 3/4" using red cardstock.
I then used my Create a Critter Cartridge p. 60 for the cow. I cut the Cow, Layer 1, Layer 2, and Layer 3 all at 3". I then chalked around all cuts to give it a little more shading. I then added Glossy Accents to the nose and utters!
The black checkered mat was cut at 3 1/2" x 5". I then cut a black border at 1 1/2" x 5 1/2" and punched it using a laced edge border punch. The red patterned paper was also in my scraps stash and was cut at 1" x 5 1/2" and was added on top of the black mat.
In the inside of the card I added the Milk bottle and used my Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge and cut out It! at 1".
A cute little card to brighten someone's day who isn't feeling the best but could "milk it!"
