Cricut Bump in the Night Birthday Card

Hello Crafters!

I wanted to share a boys birthday card that I created with Cricut Design Space. The main characters come for the Cricut cartridge 'Bump in the Night'. All images are included in the Cricut Access Subscription. The Cricut Design Space cut file and video tutorial link are available at the end of this post.

I used the Print then Cut feature in Design Space for my monsters and the Raaaarh sentiment. To give these images depth I used Glossy Accents on the monster faces and the sentiment. I also painted the cut edges with a brush pen, such as Tim Holtz Distress Markers, in a coordinating color. It really gives the images a finished look. 

I let my Cricut Explore do the writing for me, as you can see with the inside sentiment. The dot patterned paper is from Simple Stories 'Snap Color Vibe'; I am in love with this little 6 x 6 packet. The color theme for my card is Mustard Yellow, Dark Orange, and Peacock Teal.
Thank you for stopping by today. Please, let me know if you have any questions. The video tutorial will show how to assemble this card; I would appreciate if you would like my video and become a YouTube subscriber.
Also, I made this card for Die Cuttin' Diva's challenge blog - the theme is Polka Dots. Head over and try their challenges; I find them very inspiring. Click HERE to be taken directly to their blog.
