LOAD #8 - Angry Birds

I took a break from scrapbooking today in order to make 40 invitations for my son's upcoming birthday party. We're going with an Angry Birds theme, so I made circle cards that look like the red Angry Bird. It was a lot of work, so I decided to count it as my LOAD for today. It's actually a COAD, but hopefully you won't count that against me. I was inspired by this card by Tracey Sanders, but I added the white tummy and made my dimensions a little different.

Here are the details on how to create this card using the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge:
• Cut the card base in red using "Circle1" and the card function, 4" (p.21 in booklet).
• Cut the crest using in black using "Accent" and the shift lock function, 2" (p.32 in booklet). Cut the extra pieces off the bottom of the flourish.
• Cut the eye bases and the eyebrows in black using "Circle1", 1.25" (p.21 in booklet). Cut three. Cut one circle in half to use for eyebrows.
• Cut the whites of the eyes in white using  "Circle1", 1" (p.21 in booklet). Cut two.
• Cut the beak in yellow using "Petal1" and the shift lock function, 1.5" (p.65 in booklet).
• Cut the tummy in white using "Oval1", 1.25' (p.22 in booklet). You will have to trim off part of the oval once you adhere it so that it follows the curve of the circle card.
• Punch the eyeballs out using a half inch circle punch.

That's it. Just assemble your pieces, and you have a cute Angry Bird to give to your favorite kid. Have fun!
