Making a Handmade Birthday Card with the Paisley Cricut Cartridge

I hope that everyone is having a great week so far.  I just finished making my brother in law a handmade birthday card using my Cricut Expression machine with the new Paisley Cricut cartridge, Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge, and also the Mini Monograms Cricut cartridge.  It came out so great that I just had to share it with you.

My brother-in-law just ran in the New York City half marathon,  so I wanted the theme of his handmade birthday card to  be running.

I used the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge for the background of the city, and the Paisley Cricut cartridge for the sneaker.  The metal that he received was gold and had a Y cut out looking like a subway token.  So I used the Mini Monograms Cricut cartridge to cut out the Y.

I had so much fun making this handmade birthday card, and I know that Harry will like it too!

Make it a Great Day and don’t forget to leave time to Craft!
