Guess What? Card

Here's the other card I was working on.  I LOVE this one because of the phone on the front... it moves when you flick it, so it looks like an animated ringing phone!

Everything from this card was made from the Better Together cartridge (Cricut Imagine).

Card Front:
The Background was cut at 8:10 on the Imagine, then trimmed to 7:10 to make a 5x7 card when folded.
The girls were cut at 3" true size, as was the title.
The girls clothes and the hair bows on the second girl were re-cut using the "layers" feature, then adhered using pop dots, for dimension.
The phone was cut as part of the title, then again using the "layers feature" and with the dial cut separately.
I pop-doted the dial on the layered phone.
I made a small spring out of 24 gauge wire wrapped around a narrow pen (spring is about 1/4" high") and attached it to the phone printed on the title, right on the dial.  Once the glue dried enough, I attached it to the pieced phone underneath it's dial.

I used a matching deep magenta color, chalked around the edges.
The parrot and "Hello" message were cut as one piece from the Better Together cartridge at approx. 2" true size.

Ring, Ring!
