Cricut Birthday Cake

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Always needing birthday cards, I decided to combine two challenges to make this card. The card measures 5" x 6 1/2" and is cut from a blue card stock paper. The patterned cake/cupcake paper was left over from a previous project. Remaining papers are also from my scrap stash. Although I own many Cricut cartridges, I purchased a monthly subscription to try in Cricut Design Space. After a search for a birthday cake through numerous images, would you believe I chose a cake image that I actually own!! In fact, of all the cartridges that I used for this card, Decorate! Celebrate! is the only one that I do not own. I was happy to use Cricut images for those images depicted in the sketch.

Cricut Cartridges:
Just a Note - Birthday cake is cut 2.25" wide. 
Decorate! Celebrate! - Small green banner is cut .78" wide x.85" high.
Plantin Schoolbook - Oval is cut 4.75" high.
Pretty Pennants - Pink pendant banner is cut 6" high.

Happy Birthday folder is used on the white oval.
