Today I am making a Cricut Card, a birthday card to be exact, for my Godson Tyler who is turning 11 years old this month. I have so many great Cricut card ideas, but I want this birthday card to be really special and fun.
So, I got myself comfy on my sofa with my Gypsy for awhile and went through my cartridges and even some cartridges that I didn’t have, (you can view and also design with all the available cartridges with your Gypsy, you just can only cut with the cartridges that you own) to find something different, not just your ordinary birthday card look and I found it. I have such a great Cricut Card Idea!
Using the Animal Kingdom Cricut Cartridge, I found a fish bowl with some really cute fish and plants to put inside.
I cut the fish bowl using my Cricut Expression cutting machine at 3 inches, the fish at 1½ inches and the plant at 2 inches. I attached all the pieces to a 4×5½ white card with my glue glider pro and for the “bubbles” I used pop dots for dimension. I then added some stickles, funky fibers and a real star fish for the finishing touch. I wanted the Happy Birthday Tyler to look like bubbles coming out of the fishes’ mouth.
There are so many shapes in each cartridge, you just have to put your “creative hat” on and get crafting. You never know how it’s going to turn out, just wish for the best and remember “You Made it Yourself” , this is a handmade greeting card, which makes it even more special for the person who is receiving it!
~ Happy Birthday to my Fantastic Godson Tyler ~
Wish I could be there with you to celebrate and to give you a Big Hug & Kiss!
Make it a Great Day and don’t forget to leave time to Craft!
