Simply Sweet Birthday Card


This Simply Sweet cart is not released yet, but when it is, you will want it. It has a darling little whimsical font, cute graphics and some great features including Tab, Blocked, Stitched, Heart, Shadow and Blackout.

This is a birthday card for a dear friend. I got the idea off the featured project. I actually made the featured project first but decided to play around with it.
I love the Happy Birthday wording at the bottom of the card! If you look closely at the circle you can see the "stitched" effect! I also "cuttlebugged" the printed patterns to give it a "quilted" look.

Tools:
Simply Sweet Cricut Cartridge
Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Folder
Bloom Dots Cuttlebug Folder

Ingredients:
Stampin' Up Raspberry Tart Designer Paper- I used three different patterns
Stampin' Up Certainly Celery Paper
Stampin' Up Certainly Celery Paper


My little girl came up with the idea to have cards open with a tie ribbon. She has been doing this design for about a year now so it is her original idea that I "scraplifted"!
I started with the 6x6 card that was in the featured project but decided to make it taller. I used the Cuttlebug on the cardstock but I am not sure you can tell by the photo. I also used it on some of the paper to give it a "quilted" look.
