Seals and Butterflies by the Sea in Monterey - Cricut Valentine

Hey there,

Here's the last of my special limited edition wacky-tho-tasteful valentines for youthful adults.   This one is for my daughter who lives in Monterey, California...or as I call it, paradise.  It was obvious to me that I had to use a darling sea creature for her image.  I picked an otter because Monterey is an otter habitat and my artistically gifted daughter graduated with an Art Degree from UC Monterey...go Otters.  But I found out later  this is apparently a seal.  Whatever.   

Once again, I used the square Lori Whitlock Flip Flap svg card base.  This time I found some cute ocean images to embellish my card.  And since Pacific Grove (near Monterey) is a monarch butterfly habitat, I made sure to include some of these magical creatures flying around the lighthouse on the inner panel.

I had a fabulous time creating these landscapes in Cricut Design Space and I plan to use these card bases for lots of other fun cards.  The possibilities are endless.

Here's what I used:
  1. This Lori Whitlock svg file.
  2. Cricut Create and Critter Cartridge in Cricut Design Space
  3. Lighthouse, wages and fab sentiment image in Cricut Design Space
  4. Impression Obsession butterfly dies
  5. Tonic Studio Nuvo drops -  black for butterfly accents
  6. Cricut writing feature for sentiment
  7. Sun die.
