I'm a little tea pot short and stout card made with Birthday cake cricut cartridge

Hello, everyone! Today I have a birthday card that I made using the new Birthday Cake cartridge.

When I saw that little teapot I knew I was going to use it at some point. I just love the entire tea party theme that a potion of this cartridge has!



The paper is October Afternoon and Core'dinations. The sentiment and ribbon is papertrey ink.

Joy and I are giving away a Cricut Expression over at Everyday Cricut. Make sure you sign up as a follower over there and leave a comment on ==>this<== post
Have a wonderful weekend!

OMgosh!!! How did you know I needed to find a design like this? I'm serious - I've got a wedding shower to prepare for and this would make a great invitation. All I need to do is find a cut file to make a teapot purse thingee. Got any ideas? (hint, hint) By the way, my name on ustream is shortcropper, but on here, it's shortscrapper.

Melissa said...

The thought never even crossed my mind that I would be needing the Cake cartridges UNTIL you and Joy got your hands on them! lol

Very cute teapot and card!

Great idea. I would have never believed that you could do the wonderful things that u come up with using the Cakes carts. For STRANGE reason I didn't think that they could be used for anything but cake decorating.
