You are so precious to me! Card made using the NEW Martha Birthday Cake ART cartridge

Hello, friends!!

I hope you all enjoyed the release! I got some FANTASTIC comments from you guys and appreciate them all very much! Also, I think all the love tickled Emma. I just cannot wait for you guys to see how great her stamps are. Speaking of which if you want to win one of the sets I am giving away on Thursday leave a comment on yesterday's post and  follow this blog or subscribe via email and leave a comment on this post. . Click here to check it out ==> Hello Thursday Post

Today's card is made using the Martha Stewart cartridge called Martha Stewart Birthday Cake Art. It has so many fantastic shapes, borders, and two fab fonts!

This card is 5" x 5" and is made using Close To My Heart paper.
I cut this shape out at 4".
The stamps are from Close To My Heart.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I will be back on Monday with even more things made using the new releases!! For those of you who have been asking me for more scrapbook layouts I have a few I am going to post next week!

Have a great weekend!!

What a cute card. I'm new to all of this and love to see the mixture of stamping and Cricut. Have to admit, I need alot of practice with stamps! Do you have any links with pointers, or is it more an experience type of learning? Thanks for sharing!

I love the cake carts for papercrafting (I have 2 cake carts and no cake machine lol). I give you and Joy the credit for that because until I saw the cards you all were making with the cake carts I was happily ignoring ALL of them lol.

Gorgeous card, TFS!
