Hi Buddy! My own SVG with the Cricut Explore

Hello! I am SOOOOO happy with this card! I used my Cricut Explore and Design Space to make my own SVG from an image. I've always loved Mr. Narwhal from Elf, so I made my own version of him using a photo that I found on google. I used the Explore to cut out the shape I wanted, and then I drew in the lines to make my own "stamp". I used the Kawaii Face Assortment for his eye, and the Squee Face Assortment for his mouth. Both awesome sets from PeachyKeenStamps. I colored him with my Prismacolor colored pencils and blended out with OMS/gamsol. I went over his eye and eyebrow with a black sakura glaze pen. 
I colored in his horn {which is really a tooth that only male narwhal's have} with a wink of stella clear glitter marker...and then added glossy accents to it. I inked the sky with tumbled glass distress ink, and added snow with my sakura white gel pen. Mr. Narwhal's line in Elf is, "Bye Buddy. Hope you find your Dad."....but I made this a hi card. I used the Claire's ABC's set from Lawn Fawn to make the greeting. I also added wink of stella to the snowy iceberg in front of Mr. Narwhal. :)
