Happy Birthday from Cricut Diva

Good Morning!

This morning I am showing you a card I made for our "Sentimental Saturday" challenge over at Cricut Diva.


Inside Top

Inside Bottom

I used two different cartridges for this A2 size card.  For the front I used our brand new, exclusive Artbooking Cricut cartridge!!  LOVE this cartridge. On the inside, I used another fav cartridge of mine:  Create-a-Critter 2!

I don’t know you but I am always in need of birthday cards. So I decided to make this a“girlie” one.  I took some Cotton Candy cardstock for the first layer of the front and insides of the card – cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″.  I edged each mat with Cotton Candy ink.

For the front of the card - the number frame can be found on page 86, E9, Photo Mat 2, < Happy > cut at 4″ using the Real Dial Size key.  I used our Chantilly paper pack.  I stamped the sentiment “Happy Birthday” using Cotton Candy ink which is a coordinating color to the pack.  The sentiment comes from the Joyful Birthday stamp set.

I really like also designing the inside of my cards as well so for the inside  top layer I used the Create-a-Critter 2 Cricut cartridge to cut the sentiment “Make a Wish”.  You can find this image on page 75, E7, Shift, Phrase, < PrtyMky-s > cut at 2 1/2″. For the bottom layer of the card, I cut the word bubble using this same cartridge. It can be found on page 75, E7, Phrase, < PrtyMnky > cut at 3 3/4″.  The little bird in the right hand corner comes from the Hello Blooms stamp set and was also stamped with Cotton Candy ink.

I hope you enjoyed my card -- have a wonderfully crafty day!
