This is Michelle from www.cricutcrazyscrapper.blogspot.com Since we are celebrating birthdays this week at Exploring Cricut, I used the Birthday Bash and Create A Critter 2 cartridges to make this birthday card for my niece. It's a fun little card when you want something "punny"!
I used the Birthday Bash cartridge to cut the shaped card base at 4 1/4 inches. I cut two of the scallop mats (also from Birthday Bash) in two different prints and cut each in half, with some ribbon across the center visually connect them. The cute little party bird is from Create A Critter 2, cut at 3 inches. I added a little bling to his party hat…because what is a birthday party without some bling? I stamped my Happy bird-day sentiment and hand cut the little banners. I did a little more quick stamping inside to finish it all off. Quick, easy, and cute!
Happy Birthday to Exploring Cricut and More! Katrina here from www.scrappyhorses.blogspot.com There's such a great celebration over here and I'm so happy to have been invited to the party!
Since it's a birthday, I decided to share a present and wrapping I made for my sister. Now, for those of you who follow my blog you may be thinking you saw her birthday card weeks ago! (You'll notice a color theme here! These are her favorite colors.) Yes, you did; her birthday was in September. We always celebrate all the fall birthdays together at one time in the middle of October. Ok, I realize that was probably more info than you needed about my family's celebration habits, so on with the project! ; )
I made the display card from CTMH Olive and Sweet leave cardstock. I cut a piece of cereal box the same size as the Sweet Leaf piece of CS and glued it all together. I punched a couple of small holes and cut slits on the diagonal to the holes. To keep the chain in place I found a little bag with self sealer and stuck the remaining chain in and just stuck down the self sealing part. I never throw anything away.....does this make me a hoarder? Yikes, oh well.....in this case it worked out well!
Have a great time at the party! Be sure to enter our challenge and join in our FUN!!!!
