"Summer Days" Knockoff Card

Happy Monday fellow crafters! It's my turn to post over at the Pumpkin Spice Blog.

Today's card is inspired by a card my SIL got me for Mother's Day. The card is so cute and clever that I knew I had to re-create it.

This is the original store bought card. Isn't it so cute! The little turtle is flying a kite. The kite part is a negative cut and when you open up the card the striped kite reveals itself as a rainbow. Totally adorable.

Here is my knock-off version. I used the Cricut cartridge Create a Critter 1 and 2 to make the bear, kite, and rainbow. The clouds are a metal die cut from white foam. The card base is from Birthday Bash.
