Create a Critter 2 Father Day Cards

My Father's Day cards are done just in time for Father's Day this weekend. I used the Create a Critter 2 cartridge to make the cards. I found this card idea on page 46 of the Create a Critter 2 handbook. On page 46 there are a few golfing related images but since my father and father-in-law do not play golf I decided to just use the bear and let him be the card. So for the card base I use Cricut Craftroom to copy, flip, and weld the bear together. Then I cut out the other bear layers, the clothes, and the phrase and then put them all together to make this simple and cute Father's Day card. The great thing about this card is that it can be use for all occasions by just changing the colors and phrase inside the card. There are so many different ways this card could be used. I hope that you can use this card idea.
