So, a cute little girl I know just had her third birthday. Since we've been out of town, I wanted to make something quick & simple that wouldn't take much brain power on my part! And of course it had to be girly & cute too.
I pulled out my Cricut Gypsy and got to work (you could also use Cricut Craft Room). I chose the Hello Kitty Font cartridge from my list, selected the Shadow feature and chose a 3. Returning to my mat, I sized the 3 to 5" wide and copied it to make a second 3. I selected a single 3 and flipped it vertically. I moved the 3s around so they were touching along the top edge, and welded them together. I cut this top-folding card from some bright pink CS in my stash. Next, I chose the Silhouette feature and chose 3. I sized it to 5" wide, and cut it from some American Crafts glitter cardstock in Carrot. I layered this cut on the card front, using Scor Tape to attach it. Finally, I dug out some matching paper flowers from my stash, layered them together on an American Crafts Pearl Brad, and attached it to the front of the card with a Glue Dot. Finally, I stamped Happy Birthday inside, and I was done.
Pretty simple, but super cute with plenty of bling. It took me longer to dig out matching flowers and a stamp than to make the rest of the card!
