Cricut Artiste Birthday Balloon card

Hello, friends!

Today I have a fun birthday card that I made using the Cricut Artiste cartridge and the Close To My Heart stamp of the month. 

This card could not be much easier to make. Cut out balloons with the Cricut Artiste cartridge and then stamp ' happy' on them with the Close To My Heart Circus Alphabet stamp set. Draw the balloon string with a black pen. Then, stamp 'birthday' in black again using the Circus Stamp set. Add ribbon and you are done! 

Are you guys inspired to use alphabet stamps yet? I have more coming, so get ready to get your alphabet stamp mojo!

Such a happy birthday card indeed. Like the balloons. I did not know that the balloon images were on the Artiste cartridge. I'm going to give this a try.

What a fun and easy card today!
Thank you for sharing it!
What did you use to make the balloons so glossy -- Glossy Accents?
Thanks for the inspiration!

Windy said...

This is so cute! I'm going to make one today for my grandson's birthday.
One problem I have with alpha stamps is getting the spacing right. Any tips?
