Making handmade Birthday cards are so much fun.  My nephew is turning 14 tomorrow.  I can’t believe how fast that went and I am only the Aunt, I can’t imagine how my sister feels.  Well, I really didn’t know what kind of card to make.  I’m wasn’t sure if I want to use my Cricut Expression or to rubber stamp this card.  After a couple of days contemplating,  it turned out that rubber stamping won.

I found a stamp by Stamps Happen, Inc of a cat holding alot of balloons.  I stamped the image using Tuxedo Black Ink from Memento Ink and then colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  It looked a little “dull” so for a few of the balloons I added 3-D Crystal Lacquer for a cool effect.

It still wasn’t the look that I wanted so I decided to use my Cuttlebug with the Happy Birthday embossing folder.  I then cut the stamped image and glued it to the top of the embossed piece of cardstock with my new pink ATG gun (Advanced Tape Glider).  Now that’s what I wanted it to look like.

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!
