Happy Birthday!

I just bought the Create a Critters cartridge and love it! Can you believe I didn’t own this adorable cartridge?

For my first project I made a quick and easy card that is perfect for a little girl. I never seem to have enough children’s birthday cards on hand and I thought why not stock up.


For this card I used my Expression 2 and cut 2 zebra shadows at 5.6. I used a brad to join the card. You can also weld the cards together, but this time I decided to try something different.

I used all the zebra layers except the flower which is from the George Cartridge and cut at 1.2 inches. I made glitter paste and applied to the flower. Click here to watch my video on how to make glitter paste. I also used glossy accents on the hooves and tail for added shine.

The pattern paper is from Theresa Collins and perfect for adding a feminine touch. The nice thing about this cut is you could eliminate the flower and use masculine papers to make a cute card for a little boy!


I used a Fiskars stamp for the inside of this card. I love their stamps!

Be sure to stop back on Wednesday for a fun new video.

Linda - this is so, so sweet!! I think it would be perfect for a big girl too! There are so many fun cuts on Create a Critter. You'll have so much fun with this cartridge! There are some hidden gems on the extra layers too. Be sure to have a look.
I've been thinking about you and am hoping that you continue to feel better each day.

PS Where did you buy your glitter? Love the color!

Linda Kaiser said...

Diane, thanks for the nice comment! The glitter is part of a package I bought at Jo-Anns. I didn't save the package so not sure what the name of the color is.

Sorry!

Kate, thanks so much for taking the time to comment. I just heard about your basement flooding and your friend's son getting very sick.

Take care and I left you a longer comment on your blog. My thoughts are with you.
