Simple birthday card made with Beyond Birthdays

Hello, everyone! I have a super simple card for you today. I dusted off my Beyond Birthdays cartridge and cut out this really cute title. Then added it to the bottom of my card. It does not get much easier than that!


I like to go back to older cricut cartridges every now and then and re-discover them. Beyond Birthdays is definitely great one to rediscover if you are a card maker.

I used CTMH paper and ribbon.

I leave California today and head back to Texas. We are all exhausted, but have had a fabulous time!

Have a great week!

Cute Card... rediscovery??? what about us new cricut owners - some of those "old" cartridges are the only ones we can afford, it is nice to get some inspiration on a New cartridge (new to me!!).
Thanks for sharing.

Glad you had a great time. Love the simple card. It's good to go back to the old carts and revisit them. Alot of Cricut have the old basics and not as many of the new carts. So....appreciate you using them.

I'm currently on a cart-shopping hiatus (nothing new for me for a bit unless I win something lol). But I'm having a really great time exploring the carts I already have and learning new techniques to use with those carts.

It's a great card, and I love the paper you used.

lol it's not an Old cart, it's a Classic : ).

What a cute but simple card! I like the more earth tone colors. Thank you for sharing that card.

Such beautiful cards, you talented people never cease to amaze me. I want to do them all! Love the little nurse card. I hope I have this cartridge, I know I have something named camping just don't know it is it that one. LOL

I love the Simple Birthday cart. but have a question for you. Every time I cut out one of the sentiments like Happy Birthday, i get parts that cut out nice and clean and other areas that are ripped. What am I doing wrong?
