I always loved to make handmade cards, but it is so much fun with a Cricut Expression machine. My nephew is turning 13 and I needed to make a “cool” card. When Luke was out visiting us a few years ago, we were always laughing so I wanted his card to make him laugh.
So using the Animal Kingdom Cricut cartridge I cut out the cow and all of the layers. Added some stickles to give him (the cow) a little “pizazz”. Then using the Cricut Gypsy, I welded together the phrase for the front of the card using Plantin Schoolbook and before I added it to the front of the card with pop dots, I used a white opaque Martha Stewart marker and added some polka dots. Oops I almost forgot the grass is also from Plantin Schoolbook grass border.
For the inside of the card I used the Beyond Birthdays Cricut cartridge for the phrase Happy Birthday and then I found a similar font for the birthday boys name.
Hope you enjoyed my birthday card, and my funny sense of humor. Wishing Luke a Fantastic 13th Birthday!
Make it a Great Day and don’t forget to leave time to Craft!
