Birthday BOOM

Needed to make granddaughter Bailey a birthday card and I wanted to personalize it. When I thought about a personalized card I immediately looked to my long-distance friend Julie! She inspired me enough to get over my Cricut fear. I busted out the cartridges and dusted off the Cricut took a deep breath and BOOM!

As much as I love my dear sweet Bailey, I couldn't manage to make a super deluxe card like Miss Julie's but I think "Bootsy" will like her card. Thank you Julie!!!

~White card stock base
~Layer of design paper
~Cricut cartridge: Sophisticated
~Dry wall mesh tape
~Three coordinating design papers
~Bling for the dot of the 'i'
~Three die cuts (Spellbinders and Stampin' Up)
Come and Get it - birthday theme
The Squirrel and the Fox - birthday
Sister Act - anything goes
Penny's Paper-Crafty - two or more design papers

  1. Your granddaughter will love her birthday card. Thanks for playing along with us at The Squirrel and The Fox. (PS Your random musing are too funny)

  2. Hi Nancy! I'm from Iowa also! Saw your name in Totally Gorjuss! I'm from Boone! Was wondering where you live!

  3. Actually it was Sister Act Challenge! I may have said Totally Gorjuss--I was looking at both at the same time!

  4. Nancy, I think you're wrong.....this one IS super deluxe!!!! So pretty and know she's going to love it too.

  5. Great card Nancy!
    Wonderful use of our challenge, at Come And Get It!....good luck
