Lion Birthday Card with the Cricut

Hi all - Hope you have all been well.  We have been a sickly bunch over here.  I was out for the weekend and now my oldest has strep.  I am really ready for the winter and the sickies to be gone.  So today I have a really cute birthday card I made for one of my favorite little boys.  He turned the ripe old age of 3 this past weekend.  We had a fun day listening to his favorite band at a local coffee shop.  So here it is:

Card Recipe:

  • Red card base is 5.5 x 5.5
  • The polka dot paper is from a Cricut paper stack that came with my Expression cut at 5" square
  • Birthday Lion cut at 2.5" from Create a Critter 2 cartridge and popped with a pop dot
  • Party Time sentiment cut at 2" from Create a Critter 2 cartridge
  • Doodlebug twine in yellow for the hat and blue for the word party.  I just used my glue pen to trace the letters and then lined the letters
  • Yellow ribbon from my stash
I really love how this card turned out.  The twine adds such a special touch that makes the card stand out.  I am entering this card in two challenges:  The Pop challenge over at My Craft Spot and the Pet challenge over at Exploring Cricut.  

Thanks for visiting today.  I will have the gift that went with the card for my Pinterest Wednesday.  Hope you come back and see it.  Have a great week.
