My First Creation

I have had a few people wanting to see some of the things that I have made since getting my cricut. So I am posting pictures today of the birthday card that I have made for Kaelyn, (now I just have to keep her from looking at my posts until after her party).

This is the front of the card.

A close up of the word "birthday"

The flower on the bottom left hand side.
I used the Simply Sweet cartridge for this card, and just used the sample that was in the front of the little book that came with the it.

To make this card I started with pink card stock cut at 6"x12", which I then folded in half. After that I cut two strips of patterned paper and attached them to the front of the card stock. Then using the cricut I cut HAPPY out in one inch letters then again in the one inch shadow feature. For this I used pink and green paper. Then I used the pink and green again to cut out birthday, and layered slightly off-center and attached it to the bottom right of the card. When I made the flower I cut out a peach circle using the stitch feature and then laced white ribbon through it. I then cut two flowers in different sizes. After attaching the flowers onto the circle, I used beads that you would make a bracelet with for the center of the flower. To finish the card off I tied a white cream satin ribbon around the top portion of  the card.
