Cricut Birthday Bash Elegant Card!


There is an awesome card and tag feature key on the new Cricut Birthday Bash Cartridge that I am just loving!!  This card shape and title ("celebrate") were cut at 5-1/4" and it took no time!  I used double sided K & Company paper so the inside is decorated also.  Anna Grffin's dimensional flower sticker provided the focal point.


The "celebrate" automatically resizes to cut to fit the card - you don't have to change the dial (FYI for newbies!).  I cuttlebugged the scalloped oval (cut from the Cricut A Child's Year cartridge at 4-3/4") using the damask folder.  I also added some white pen work to the "celebrate" wording to give it some attention.


Inside I cut two more scalloped circles from the Cricut A Child's Year cartridge at 4-3/4" and 4-1/2" using Core'dinations cardstock.  Did some inking also!


Here are the sample images from the Cricut Birthday Bash cartridge - so cute!  But it can be elegant also!


Tune in tomorrow for another project!  Have a great day, guys!  HUGS!!
