Birthday Card


20110521_10I recently bought one of the 6 X 6 pads of the Echo Park Paper from Cutter’s Creek. As soon as I received the Summer's Day pad I knew the colors in the patterned paper would work great with my All Wrapped Up Cricut Imagine cartridge. All of the solid colored cuts are flooded with colors from the All Wrapped Up Imagine cartridge.

For my card I started with a 9” X 6”Bazzill Simply Smooth white card stock that I scored at 4 1/2” and folded to create a 4 1/2” X 6” card base. I then used a piece of the patterned paper from the Echo Park Summer’s Day paper pad cut the 4 3/4” X 5 7/8”. I really just wanted a very narrow white border on the card. I used my Elegant Edges Cricut Imagine cartridge and using the Oblong feature on the cartridge cut just the shadow of a scalloped rectangle that I flooded with a bright lime green color from the All Wrapped Up cartridge. I cut this rectangle at 4.4”. Instead of adding stamped sentiment to my card I decided to emboss this green mat with the Happy Birthday cuttlebug A2 embossing folder. I attached this to the card with some foam tape. The mouse image is from the Birthday Bash cartridge and was cut at 3.0” again all flooded with colors from the All Wrapped Up Imagine cartridge. I added some Orange Peel Stickles to the orange dots on the package and some Fruit Punch Stickles to the pink dots on the gift. I added some white doodle dots with my Sakura Gel Pen. I attached the mouse to the card with an Action Wobble.

The cartridges used on the project are not listed on the Cutter’s Creek store site but Kim may be able to get them for you. The Action Wobble’s are on the site for Pre-order and should be available sometime in June.
