Cricut's Birthday Message

Hi everyone! I can't believe it's suppose to rain today in Cali. We have been having some wonderful weather these past few days and now for the rain to come. Oh well, we will make the best of it. This Friday, one of my sister-n-laws celebrates her birthday. When I asked her what kind of card she wanted me to make her, she wanted something with a Cricket on it. So I wanted to choose one the of the Cricut heads from the Cricut E2 Pre-loaded Cricut Decals Cartridge and chose one of him holding a guitar. Since my sister-n-law loves playing her guitar, I thought this would be perfect. For my sentiment, I also used my K. Andrews Splash-tastic Summer  Stamp set. Since this set didn't have the word "birthday," I decided to take some of the sayings and put them together to create the word "birthday." For more information about this stamp set and many others then be sure to click here.

Happy Birthday Card

 I really love the effect the Cricut takes when it's embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Folder. Then, I used a Versa Magic Chalk Ink: Spanish Olive to ink all around the edges of the paper. I also needed to emboss the guitar with the D'vine Swirls to make it realistic.
 For the strings on the guitar, I added Red Stripe Twine to give the guitar some effect.
 I used a Daffodil Color Ribbon from 3 Girls Jam. Then I stamped the sentiment "Stopping by to say" which comes from K. Andrews Splash-tastic Stamp Set.

 Using my K. Andrews Stamp Set: Splash-Tastic Summer, I stamped the inside with the sentiment that reads "wishing you a happy birthday."

  6. Cute rockin' frog card. My 2 fav embossing folders are Swiss Dots & D'vine Swirl. My Swiss Dots has smaller dots than those on your cute rockin' frog. First thought you had used Spots & Dots embossing folder but that has circles in the circles so now I'm not sure what it is. Anyway it is cute nonetheless.
