Cricut Explore Frog Card

I whipped up the cutest card while playing around with my new Cricut Explore.  I was so excited for the upgrade!  It comes with a learning curve for Cricut Design Space though.  After several videos, I have got the hang of the basics.  My free subscription is only for two weeks, so I wanted to churn out some things...this guy was the prototype.  He was a little on the small side so I made 6 more in a larger size.  This is two images from Mini Monster.  I first cut the "card" and the face is from another image, I sized them the same which is easy from the edit tool...literally just typed in 5.5" for each image.  I then just set up my mats and cut away!   I love how you can move the images around for maximum paper usage or on the other side of the paper instead of always on the top left corner.  I have also learned a few other tricks in my small amount of time on Design Space that I will share during my next challenge coming up May 23!

I chalked up the edges with Quick Quotes Green with Envy ink and Midnight Confessions. 

I stamped the sentiment from Stampin Up Unfrogettable (very old set).
