Birthday Card With Letter Envy
I am soooo loving the new Cricut Circle cartridge, Letter Envy. I have used it twice this week - my only two trips into my craft room! This cartridge is so cute. Just look at the numbers 5 and 2 - they have such adorable details!
Do I even need to mention that this is a birthday card? I made this for a fun friend who I think will enjoy the funky detailed numbers. I used Cricut Craft Room to create this card. I welded the 5 and 2 together, then used the "group" function. I then copied and pasted the welded 52 and flipped the image. By welding the two 52s together at the top of the numbers I created a folded base card.
Before cutting I added the word "Happy" to the left edge of the number 5. I then cut the base card in orange cardstock. I cut the additional number layers in assorted cardstock. I assembled the elements, using pop-dots to lift the flowers. I finished the card with Stickles, Smooches, and Close to My Heart Gem Buttons for the Bling Assortment set. The Bling Assortment is available for purchase at my Close to My Heart on line store. Just click on the item name.
