Cricut 25th Birthday Card

Cricut 25th Birthday Card
Quick and Easy card
Hello, friends!

Happy Monday to all of you! 

My baby brother turns twenty five this week! We are thirteen years a part, so I remember when he was just a little baby. He has turned into such a wonderful young man. I hope he likes this card!

This week over at the Bitten By the Bug blog we were asked to make a shaped card. I love making my own using Design Space, so it was just a matter of finding a fun shape!

For this card, I used the Celebrate! Decorate! cartridge and chose one of the banners. Then, I welded the two of them together at the top and scored it at that junction. Voila! The font used is from the Martha Stewart Seasonal cake cartridge. It is an old one, but this font was just perfect!

If you have a Cricut Explore, here is the file: Cricut 25th Birthday Card

If you do not have an Explore, this card is hard to make. However, here are the sizes:
25 - 1 1/2"
card shape - 10"
celebrate shape - 4"

This way of wishing is really wonderful dear. I am also planning to throw a party at best party venues in Houston as it’s my little princess birthday and I want to make it really special for her.

Love the different type of shape you used for this! Wish I had an Explore to try out something like that…guess I'll have to keep dreaming, lol! I also like that color combo…I find masculine bday cards so hard to make.
