Hubby’s Birthday Card

Made hubby a fun card for his birthday, this year.


 Sorry for the blurriness inside.  It says: "Happy Birthday, you old buzzard!"  J

Cricut Imagine
Cricut Imagine Cartridges –
  Best Friends (background; branch)
  Yummy (party hat)
Cricut Cartridge – Life’s a Party (vulture/buzzard; card; Over the Hill; candles)
Cardstock -- white (for the Imagine)
Glue – ATG; Zig Two-Way
Stickles – Waterfall; Yellow (no name)
Google eye
Sentiment – computer-generated

Created the base card (at 7”), using the card feature from the Life’s a Party cartridge.  Used the background (5.5”) and branch (2.4”), from the Imagine Best Friends cartridge.  Placed the buzzard on the branch.

You may notice that the branch looks a li’l bit different from the picture in the handbook.  I actually cut away one of the small branches from the top and re-attached it to the bottom of the main branch.  Otherwise, the buzzard, where it was positioned, would’ve been hiding that li’l branch.

Put a party hat, from the Yummy cartridge, on the buzzard, adding a pink boa around its neck. 

The inside of the card was created using the “Over the Hill” insert, cut at 4.4”.  I found you couldn’t use the same ratio for the layered candles, so cut that at 4.1”.

Utilizing CCR (just for designing --- I don’t ever cut from it), I was able to figure out what size the party hat needed to be.  Cut it at 1.8”.  The buzzard is cut at 2.3”.

It was a fun card to create.  Just hope hubby finds the “fun” in it.  LOL  J

Show off your craft space

I thought I would try something a li'l different on this post.  I think you'll all love it.  J

When I visit other crafters' blogs, I especially love looking at what their craftroom looks like.  One can get so many great ideas.  So, I thought why not have this info in ONE SPOT --- here on my blog.  How fun would that be, eh?   All one would need to do, when visiting my blog, is click on someone else's blog and you're off visiting someone else.  J

Sooooo, please link up your blog, via "Linky" below and post a picture/link of your craft space. 

I'll start off, by showing some pix of my craftroom.  

I just linked mine, to start off.  J

Now, it's your turn:-
