Numeral Birthday Card with Lori

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!

Items available from Cutters Creek:


  1. Creative and cute Lori! Nice card!!!

  2. Lori that is so darn cute. I love it. I don't own a lot of Cricut cartridges. Which one did you use to make the card? Hugs, Fran

    1. I used Hello Kitty Font. I had to use the Gypsy to weld two shapes together - I chose to flip one vertically and make a top fold, but depending on the number, for some it is easier to flip horizontally and make a side fold card.

  3. It's even cuter in person! Evie LOVES it :)
