Winter birthday card

Here is a cute winter birthday card idea that I completely stole from the circle blog. It was really cute and I had the same paper so I thought I would give it a whirl. I used Echo Park paper and lots of glitter and snow. I used the Christmas card cat for the card shape and the snowman. Inside of card says... Happy BRRRday!

Birthday Card

Here is a birthday card I made today for a weekend challenge on the cricut board. We were to use one of our first purchased carts. I used Blackletter for the frame and script paper. On this card I also used my cuttlebug, I used distressed stripes and swiss dots. I sanded the frame I used distressed stripes on to well distress it. lol On the brown circle I used swiss dots and used 2 shades of distress Inks to give it a suaded look. (looks great in person and worked well) I also used my Imagine on this one to print the script paper this was from Lori's Garden. On the center of the flower I used stickes on top of a brad and well it looks messy so I may go back in and correct that. The Happy Birthday tags were pre printed from an old paperpack I had laying around. Tied it up with a red ribbon on the side.
