Funkadelic Birthday Card and a Tip on Cutting Glitter Paper with your Cricut.

I recently purchased the Groovy Time Cricut cartridge and decided to make a quick birthday card for a friend.


I used the glue and fold method to make the card base. To view my video on three different ways to make a shaped card, please click here. I love that it is such an unusual shape!

The image is on page 26 and I used all the layers. The glitter paper is from DCWV Glitter Cardstock stack and is very thick. I love how easy it is to cut this glitter paper with my Cricut E2. I just set my speed to one, pressure 5, blade depth to 6 and then I set my Gypsy to cut it twice. Love it!

Thanks for visiting and have a funkadelic day! My new word for the day…can you tell?

Such a unique shape! All glittered papers are not created equal. But, the DCWV papers won't ruin your mat or blade.
