Sentimental Birthday Card
I recently got the Cricut Sentimental cartridge. I wasn't too sure about it at first but once I had a chance to look at the handbook I realized this cartridge had a lot of great cuts on it. It has some great tags on the cartridge as well as cards and envelopes. I decided to make a card and envelope using the cartridge. I cut the envelope from page 66 of the handbook using the Fit to Page feature on my Expression. It cut the envelope at 4 1/2". I also cut the liner for the envelope at 4 1/2". I then cut the card from the same page also at 4 1/2". I used some Bazzill paper for the envelope and paper from the Die Cuts With View Sweets paper pack. I then cut the cupcake from the Doodlecharms cartridge at 3 1/2". I cut the cupcake out using the Blackout feature, and the shadow feature. I also cut the layers. I ran the white frosting through my cuttlebug and embossed it with the swirls folder. I then used some liquid applique in white to give the cupcake a frosted look. I applied the liquid applique and then used my heat embossing gun to plump up the "frosting" and sprinkled it with some pink and turquoise glitter. I want to thank the Bug Junkie for this technique. I saw a video on her blog about the liquid applique. To see her video go here to her blog.
