Our niece Riley’s 11th birthday is next week and again I wanted to made a cute card using my cricut. What 11 year old girl doesn’t like cake and presents?
So I used those two things for the front of the card. I cut out the cake from the Designer’s Calendar Cricut cartridge and the present from the Celebrations Cricut cartridge, both using my Cricut Expression machine.
I cut the cake on plain white cardstock then colored in the image with Copic Sketch markers and then added some “bling” with stickles to the frosting of the cake and the flame of the candle.
The present I cut out on two different shades of purple but again added Stickles onto the bow to add a little sparkle to the present.
I then used my Cuttlebug and embossed a light green plaid piece of cardstock with a star embossing folder, layered that onto a solid piece of purple cardstock and finished with a polka dot bow, using American Craft ribbon.
I think this came out really cute and for the inside saying I printed on the computer: Happy Cake and Presents Day!
Wishing Riley a Very Happy Birthday!
Make it a Great Day and don’t forget to leave time to Craft!
