We’re celebrating birthdays at Die Cuttin’ Divas this week. You can never have too many birthday cards on hand. You never know when your husband is going to ask you for one! Since it’s almost fall, I decided to make an autumn-themed birthday card this time around.
For my card base, I used a cut from Cricut Wild Card. It’s the cut on page 35 called Stitched. I cut the card, the liner, and the frame. Don’t know if you can tell or not, but the rooster is on the inside of the card, peeking through a little square hole in the front.
I love to use my Cricut cartridges and had a ton of fun with this one. I went “old school.” No Gypsy, no Design Studio, no Design Space, just a old Expression and cartridge.
On the left is a close up of the image from the front of the card, and on the right is what it looks like on the inside. I matted the inside one. That gorgeous rooster is from Unity Stamp Company. It’s an Itty Bitty called New Day Rooster. I stamped in black on some watercolor paper that I water colored on! 🙂 On the inside, it says, “Hope your birthday is something to crow about!”
Hope you check out all the inspiration at Die Cuttin’ Divas, then link up your own birthday card. (You know – not one you received, but one you made!)
