Exploring Cricut- Disney Challenge

Hello! We have another challenge at Exploring Cricut this week. The challenge is to create a card, layout or craft using any of the Disney Cricut cartridges. I chose to make a card using Goofy.
 
 
 
There are 3 different images of Goofy and I think they are all equally cute. I will say that using my Gypsy is great, however, I still look at my books so that I can get the placement correct. On certain cartridges it is more difficult for me to see how the layers are supposed to go. For him I did cut the shadow and then layered up.
 
I also think with the small pieces it is nice to use the small Xyron so that you don't have glue all over you:) When creating his teeth I decided not to use the cut outs as they were really small. I instead used Liquid Pearls. I also used this on his gloves. For the white of the eyes I added Glossy Accents.
 
The swirl is also on this same page as a border. To finish it off, I added a green ribbon.
 
Recipe:
A2 card base
Papers - Scraps
Goofy - Mickey and Friends 3.83"

Great idea to use the liquid pearl for the teeth! I often do the eyes with white gel pen too-just can't work with really tiny pieces! He looks so fun and goofy and I love that paper-I only have a few scraps left of that Ad Lib paper because I used every bit. My kiddos start school today, so I'm hoping to sneak downstairs for some crafting :)
