Guitar Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
Hope this Monday is going well for you! I found some time to play in my craft room with the Cricut! This card measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" and is white cardstock. I am using some scrap papers from previous projects. When I saw the challenge at BBTB2 this week, I had to make a card that would work for the Elvis's Birthday challenge. I also know someone who was born on the same day! The song that I chose is Guitar Man! Still love his music!

Cricut Cartridges:
Nifty Fifties - Guitar is cut 2.21" wide x 3" high. This is my first time to cut this image. I do like the way it turned out. I added white dashes with a Gelly Roll pen to add a little more interest. A second guitar is cut 3.75" high - this is used inside the card.
Birthday Bash - Star is cut 1.56" wide x 1.50" high.  First time to use this image.
Cake Basics - Happy Birthday is cut 4" wide x 1.48" high. This sentiment is used inside the card. The cartridge is available in Cricut Access and is my time time to use an image from the cartridge.

Happy Birthday folder is used on the white mat. 
Swiss Dots is used on the red strip.

Inside the card!

Cut It Up - Ch 112 Out with the old, In with the new. 
DL.ART   - Jan Linky
FCCB    -  Ch. 292 Something New
