6 Summer BBQ invitation with Cricut
I started with a card base and added a Cricut cut Argyle layer from the Wild Card cartridge, embossed with the Swiss Dots folder. I was headed for a tablecloth look, but I'm not so sure I got there!
I couldn't find a grill on any of the Cricut cartridges I had so I had to improvise. It was surprisingly easy to come up with a grill using basic shapes. I cut a cylinder shape from Cricut George cartridge, adhered a shadow layer, then cut it in half so I could have my grill open. I attached the pieces with a brad. The legs are rectangular shapes and circles. I used George to cut mine, but they can easily be done with other cartridges or freehand. The wheels have brads through them. The smoke is created with swirls. Any swirls will do, but I found mine on Home Decor.
That's it... a BBQ invitation a la Cricut!
Hope you get some ideas from this invitation to create your own!
