Today I made a Birthday card and I still have 3 to go. 2 are for a 8 year old and my great-grandson will be 1 on Jan 24th, so his card will actually be for his mom and Dad to put away until he gets bigger and understands what they are.
Any way enough rambling and I will post my card and then tell you what I did.
I have the subscription for the cricut library so I'm able to use different cuts from cartridges that I don't have. The balloons are from the BEST FRIENDS cart and this is a print then cut. I really like this feature on the Explore. Then it cuts it out and wa-la you have your cut already to go on your card.
I used bakers twine for the strings on the balloon for the inside of my card.
The Happy Birthday font is from Nate's ABC's and I use the writing feature for this and then cut it out. I used my colored pencils to color the letters to make it stand out more. I popped up the balloons for more damention. Thinks for looking and have a great day.
