Here’s the recipe:-
Cricut Cartridges used:-
Pink Journey – scalloped ovals & flourish
Lyrical Letters – Happy BDay
Hannah Montana - butterfly
Plantin Schoolbook – tri-shutter card, itself
Home Décor - flower
Regular bead – on small blue flower
Seed beads – on border punch flowers
Flowers – interspersed on the card
Stickles – on small butterflies
Skittles – on light blue flowers
Pearls – on blue & brown flowers
Chipboard – 50; Happy Birthday; Celebrate
Ribbon – around scalloped oval
Rhinestones – on large butterfly
I used the cut file provided by OkieLadybug at:-
(thanks, Okie!) but, if you don’t have a Cricut Expression, you can make it manually by following Bonnie Szwalkiewicz’s instructions at:-
I put the card together, using various coloured patterned paper, die cuts from the Cricut cartridges and different embellishments, pop-dotting the flower and butterflies. The sentiments are computer-generated. The tiny butterflies are from the Martha Stewart punch, using “Waterfall” Stickles to embellish. I used the Martha Stewart flower border punch, on the right-hand side, adding seed beads to them.
If you can’t see the sentiment clearly, it says:-
50 is just a number - It's where the heart is that counts.
Happy Birthday, my dear friend!
The envelope was a regular A2, covering it with the “negative” of a scalloped oval. Then I added, inbetween, “Happy BDay”. I think it turned out pretty good!! :-)
Now, if you haven’t already made one of these cards, give it a “go”. :-)
