Masculine Birthday Card
My father-in-law's birthday is in a week and I have to get the card in the mail in the next couple of days. So I whipped up a card for him this afternoon. I started with a pre-scored white 5" x 7" card base. I added a black mat cut to 6 3/4" X 4 3/4". I then used my Imagine and the Bubblegum Striped pattern cartridge and the stock 5:7 rectangle to print out my patterned paper, and cut it to 6 1/2" X 4 1/2". I then used the Celebrate with Flourish Cricut Lite cartridge to cut the Happy Birthday at 3.1" For my shadow I chose to use white for the shadow. I used colors and patterns from the Bubblegum Striped Imagine cartridge for the other layers. I adhered it to the card with some foam tape and added some white buttons with glue dots to finish off the card. Hope he likes it. Thanks for visiting.
