Elegant Edges Birthday Card

20110406_4 I received my Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge this week and had a chance to try it out today. I made this birthday card for my sister whose birthday is Saturday.

I started with a 5 1/2” square card base made from white card stock. I rounded the corners of the card base. I used the image from page 34 of the hand book, Dots1. I cut the shadow from some pink card stock in my stash. I then flooded the top layer with a pattern from the Yummy Cricut Imagine cartridge and the second layer with a dark turquoise blue from the Yummy color palette. I cut all these images at 5”. My cake and sentiment are also from the Yummy Imagine cartridge. I used the layers feature to cut the cake and candles at 3”.  I cut the Make a Wish also using the layers feature at 1”. I sprayed the chocolate part of the cake with some coffee shop glimmer mist and the frosting layers with some old lace and pearl glimmer mist sprays. I also sprayed the background on the Make a wish with the coffee shop glimmer mist. Once the glimmer mist dried and glued all the layers together. I pop dotted the mat I cut from Elegant Edges to my white card base. I also pop dotted the cake and sentiment to the card for added dimension. I am not having to mail this card so am not worried about the added height on the card.  I added some yellow and orange stickles to the candles so they sparkled.

This cartridge has so many great cuts on it. I am sure I will be using it often. Thanks for visiting.
