TGIF!!! I am so happy to share with you today the birthday card I made for our wonderfully sweet granddaughter. I really had fun with this card. It was my creation for today's die cut challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches. We were to use the theme "sky" as our inspiration. I used a cloud and a balloon. Check out what the wonderful designers did here.
Here are the details of the card:
I started out with an A2 size card that opens at the bottom. I cut it down to 4" wide instead of 4 1/4". I then took a piece of matching 12" card stock and scored it at 4" and 8". I cut the wavy lines using my Creative Memories wavy cutter. Then I glued the middle section to the back of my card. That's the base of the card.
Card Stock: Bazzill
Patterned Papers: K and Company
Grass: Fiskars grass border punch. I cut small pieces and glued them to the wavy lines to give the appearance of little mounds of grass.
Bear: Create A Critter Cricut cartridge cut at 2 1/2"
Balloon: Create A Critter Cricut cartridge cut at 2 1/4" (I embossed the balloon with a Cuttlebug hearts folder.)
Cloud: Create A Critter Cricut cartridge cut at 1 1/4"
Flowers: Small flower punch (Paper Shapers) and a Martha Stewart Leaf punch. I used pearls for the flower centers.
Sentiment on the outside: Computer generated and layered with a circle punch and a scalloped circle punch
Sentiment on the inside fold: Computer generated and punched with an EK Success punch
Inside sentiment: Just a happy birthday song that I printed on my computer, along with telling her how much we love her.
