25th Birthday Card

It was my niece’s 25th birthday, so made her the following card:-

The birdhouse flips up to reveal the sentiment, “Happy BDay”. The other sentiments are computer-generated.

the inside of the card. . . . . .

the back of the card. . . . .


Cricut Expression
Cricut Design Studio
Cricut Cartridges (see below)
Glue (regular & Zig Two-Way for small items)
Patterned Paper
Cardstock – double-sided (see below)
MS punch – Woodland Branch (top of sentiments)
MS punch – Optic Dot (eaves of birdhouse)
Sizzix Sizzlits - Scribbles Swirls die (branches)
Ink (for edging)
Corner rounder

Cricut Cartridges used:-

Cindy Loo – birdhouses and layers, heart for housetop
Lyrical Letters – Happy BDay sentiment
Stamping – bird, circle around hole

I just love my Cricut Design Studio. I needed it to skew the sentiment, “Happy BDay” so it would fit inside the birdhouse. You can achieve the same result using the Cricut Gypsy.

Here is the CostCo cardstock I used:-
MemoryStor® 300 Count Scrapbook Cardstock with Crop Case
75 Designer Patterns, 4 Sheets each

Because it’s double-sided, you can get a lot of different effects and it adds visual interest. I tried to make it so the front of the card would have a minimalist design on it, and was pleasantly surprised when the back had a full design, with the inside of the card, having a leaf design centered on the card. Couldn’t get anything better than that. Hope Shawna likes it!!
