DIRECTIONS (Cut sizes and supplies are in the Supplies section):
For this A2 sized card, I imported the .ping file with the crow, moon and pumpkins. I wanted him to be in front a fence though and I found a great one in the My Community Cricut cartridge. I used my Cricut Explore and Design space to create my final cut. First I imported and sized the crow. Then I sized the fence to match. Next, I attached the two images together and flattened them to create a new single image. The PPbN Download came with another .ping file of just the crow alone and this was perfect to create the bobble feature. I simply imported him as well and printed the two images together. After that, I was able to cut the images out on the Explore. I am very impressed with how well it cut the tiny crow's legs and the vines on the pumpkins.

There are just a couple other cuts needed for this card. The sentiment tag is from the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. I didn't have the right sentiment stamp for this one so I imported text on it, attached it and also used the print then cut feature. This is a great option if you don't have many stamps. The card base is white with orange and black mats. The finishing touch on this project is the three leaves. They were sold in a pack to be used as table confetti but when I saw them, I knew they would work great on cards and other projects too. I enhanced these by pouncing the edges with distress ink and drawing veins with a Wink of Stella marker. I also used a clear Wink of Stella brush marker to put the "frost on the pumpkins!"
Now to the most fun part, the wobble feature. Before attaching the wobble to the crow, I applied googly eyes which to me is what makes him so super cute. I attached the wobble to the extra crow image and then attached the whole thing to the base card image. Wobbles come with adhesive on each end of it so they're very easy to attach to your project.

There you have it! Instant fun just can't be easier! I'll be making at least one holiday wobble card before Christmas so keep an eye out for that!
