I made my card with my new Christmas present a Cricut Explore Air! I am still learning all the tricks to it, but it has been fun so far.
This picture shows both the outside and inside of my cards. I don't normally put anything on the inside so that the ladies I swap with can put what they want inside when they give it to someone. But the outside doesn't actually say "Happy Birthday" so I wanted to put it inside.
I used the Sweet Treats Cricut cartridge for the sentiment and the cupcake is from the
Once Upon a Princess cartridge. I used Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers, and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks for all of the shading on my paper. The background is from a We R Memory Keepers Chevron Embossing folder that I used in my Cuttlebug. I used my ATG Gun and the Tombow Mono Multi Glue for adhesive except for the cupcake which is popped up with some Mounting Foam. I used Multi Medium Matte to adhere the sequins that came from Pretty Pink Posh. To add some shimmer I used the Clear Wink of Stella brush pen on the words and cupcake. I also used some Diamond Stickles on the cupcake sprinkles.
Here are some close-ups of the front of my card and the inside sentiment.
Thank you so much for taking a look at my work. I hope you like it and that it inspires you to create some fun Birthday cards to share also.
