A Snails Pace - Mirror Mirror On The Wall Challenge Entry

Look at her batting those beautiful eyelashes at you! This is this week Cricut Gypsy-Chat MB entry and it is soooooo simple, let me walk you through. Don't you just love all the pearls on her shell! All dressed up!
Now down to the nitty gritty. I placed all 4 items on my mat. Then I moved the shell and snail below the 2 outline snails. I then concerned myself with the positioning of the outlines. I laid them 1 on top of the other until the lines overlapped to make sure they were even. I used the arrow keeys to move the top one over a little and then flipped it and kept it moving till the backsides were just overlapping slightly. As the pieces were already grouped together I just tapped each out line with the weld button, checked the preview to make sure they would cut properly and then concerned myself with the size.
Sizing was a little trickier. First I dealt with the width, making sure the shell and the snail were under the welded piece I adjusted JUST THE WIDTH to 11 inches. Then I took the little snail and shell and placed it within the outline. I tapped the outline and adjusted JUST THE HEIGHT to 4.25 inches. I then positioned my pieced on the mat for cutting.
Here are the papers, aren't they yummy? The new DCWV Songbird Stack. I just had to used these bright colors.
As soon as I cut the base I scored it. Note I like this paper so much I cut 2 cards...
With papers cut and scored I put the little pieces together.
On one I added this beautiful green ribbon... it didn't lay flat as it was a little ruffley so it worked great n this.
Then I added her beautiful eyes... Elizabeth aka Makeupgirl217 of 217 Creations will be sooooo jealous of her madeup eyes..... Last seen at the doll section of the local HL for only 99 cents or a bag!
Just a closer look at the beautiful paper.
Then I continued and added pearls to the 2nd snail... so elegant looking.
Sure hope you like today's post, this is one that I really enjoyed as it was so simple yet is soooo cute. I am finally expanding the number of cards that I have on hand at home. but I do need to keep working on it as I still am not ready for all occasions.
