Exploring Cricut - Thursday Project

Hello! Well, the week is almost over and it is my turn to share a project with you at Exploring Cricut. This is another CAS if you are looking for a fun gift for someone. Turtles are a favorite for the recipient of this gift, but the possibilities are endless.

I purchased the frame at Michael's with a coupon of course:) I used left over scraps, which is always a plus in my book. I chose to not add googly eyes to the turtle because the fit of the glass made it too tight.  Stickles looked to harsh for me. I might suggest if you decide to create this to leave the glass off if you really want something on the eye or get a frame that has more space between. 

I measured the inside of each frame and used my gypsy to create a rectangle of the same size. You can also do this in CCR. Remember to take your link off so that you can change height and width. I then was able to size my turtle exactly to fit inside of the frame.
I backed the turtles with white paper and think it really makes the colors pop. Sorry for the picture not being as bright. Cloudy weather here does not make for great pics.

Thanks for stopping by and remember you still have time to create a Christmas card to enter our challenge!!
