This was such a fun card to make for my great neighbor's birthday. Believe me, he and his wife have been a huge blessing to us in the past month since my husband broke his heel bone and had to have surgery. He has mowed our lawn several times, and I looked out the window one time to see her with the leaf blower blowing all of the grass off our driveway. I pray God will bless them in return!
I am entering this card into the birthday challenge over at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog - challenge no. 74. You can check it out here.
Anyway, here are the details of his birthday card:
Size: Approx. 4 1/4" x 5 1/4" -- I cut the shape using the sign feature on the Campin' Critter Cricut cartridge. I think I cut it at 5 1/4", but to be honest, I just don't remember. It could be that I cut it at 4 1/4". This feature is really cool. There are some fun shapes on the sign feature on this cartridge that can be made into cards.
Card Stock: Recollections and Bazzill
Patterned Paper: DCWV
Sentiment: Computer generated and punched with a Stampin' Up Paper Shapers Punch. I borrowed the sentiment from Jessie Adams on the Cricut messageboard -- thank you!!
Owl: Campin' Critters Cricut Cartridge cut at 2 3/4"
Branch: Straight from the Nest Cricut Cartridge
Label behind Owl: Nestabilities
Sun: 1" circle punch
Green scallop behind label: I used a scalloped oval punch, and cut the punch out in half and tucked it behind the label, just to add a little something.
Inside sentiment: "Look who's having another birthday."
Thanks for looking, and I hope you like it. Be inspired!
