It's Your Birthday Card

When I saw this post on the The Paper Boutique blog, I knew I wanted to try to make this card.  Linda Kaiser has a video here, where she explains in detail how to make this card.  She provides the sizes of all layers and explains how to get the most out of the "Just A Note" Cricut cartridge on your E2.

Here is the card I made by following along on her video. 

The supplies I used are:
  • K and Company Specialty cardstock
  • K and Company Adhesive Gems on the "a" in Birthday
  • Recollections Paper - Various Colors
  • Stickles - Cotton Candy and Diamond
  • Studio G Glitter Glue - Yellow

The photo below shows the back of the card. The birthday cake and the phrase fold in to the front.  Click on the photo to enlarge.

The photo below shows the inside of the card.  I wasn't going to show this because I didn't get the paper glued on evenly, but here it is anyway...  If I were going to give this card to someone, I would re-do the inside. Click on the photo to enlarge.

Please take a look at Linda's blog The Paper Boutique.  She is a very talented crafter!
