It's Your Day

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Needing a birthday card, I checked out some of the shaped Cricut cards that are available in Cricut Design Space. I chose this card with the cupcake. I do own this cartridge but I have not used it very much--just like a lot more of my cartridges! Papers are from the scrap stash except for the white sheet of cardstock to cut the envelope!

Cricut Cartridges:
Wild Card 2 - Card is cut 7" high. Envelope is cut 10" wide from white cardstock. The sentiment Make A Wish is cut 1.75" high and is used inside the card.
Birthday Bash - Tag "It's Your Day" is cut 1.25" wide. The words are with the tag, but rather than cutting tiny letters, I used the write feature on the Cricut Explore and Pink Crystal pen.
Cuttlebug- Divine Swirls on the frosting.

Inside of card.
White mat for a personal message is hand cut 3" wide x 2 1/2" high. I cut an extra cupcake in pink to add on the mat. The cupcake shape is cut with the envelope.

Card and Envelope
Other supplies include DMC Memory Thread bow on the tag and White Gelly Roll pen for added highlights on the card.
