SPOTTED PUPPY FRIENDS FUR-EVER                                                             

I loved doing the first doggy card so much I decided to try to make the spotted doggy on the cricut cartridge Create A Critter 2.  I did the hair the same as I did on the first card using a squashed flower from Mother's Day Bouquet cricut cartridge.  But this time I also try to make it look a bit more making cuts in the flower here and there.  Plus I made two squashed flowers... one colored cream and the other colored brown... and cut them into two pieces so I could make the hair 2 toned to match the doggy's head...I did match the two-tone hair to the two-tone head this time...but next time I am not so sure it would line up so well... pure luck this time I guess.  Below the card is more info about doing that Spotted Puppy.

Cartridges:  Create A Critter 2
                   Mother's Day Bouquet.

Other Items used:  Cardstock, printed paper, Baker's Twine and Peachy Keen 1 3/8 inches Happy go-lucky dog face.

Challenges:  Wednesday Card Sketch Challenge
                     Exploring Cricut

You can get the Cricut Craft Room file for this spotted puppy here.

These are the squashed flowers... glue the tan flower on top of the brown flower.  
There is a dotted line on the tan flower in the picture above so if you cut it in that area it should work well to match up with the head of the puppy at least mine did. 

Now glue the  half tan and half brown pieces to the full brown flower... I then cut the flower petals  into more petals so it looks a bit more shaggy (see the card above).
 Then glue the flower to the puppy's head.
