Here is a spring birthday card I made today!! It measures
5" x 5" so I'll have to make an envelope for it! :(
I added a little bird to the tree in scraps of the back ground blue polka-dot paper.
I inked the bg paper, the bird and the clouds with dark blue ink.
The tree is glued under the grass like at the trunk and the top is attached with pop-dots.
I love this little sunshine. I covered the center of it with glossy accents
and inked the golden layer with orange ink.
(Yep, I couldn't wait to take the pic and the GA
are still wet... they'll be clear when they finish drying.)
I inked the grass and tree top with green ink and the trunk with black ink.
Adding stickles and rhinestones to the purple flowers really made them shine (yeah, the flowers are actually dark purple and you can see the color through the glitter in person)!
The inside of the card got gel pen stitches (like the front of the card) and I put little eyes on all the birds with the same white gel pen. I thought the little bird family on the inside was oh-so-cute!

Cricut Cartridges used:
Preseves for the card base: (it's just a tag so most any tag could work). I sized the card base to 5 1/2" x 4 1/4", copied and welded the two to form the card. I coped the shape two more times to make the black and blue polka-dot mats (black @ 4" x 5 1/4" and blue@ 3 3/4" x 5").
Simply Charmed for the tree (3")
Serenade for the leaves, flowers and bird
Gypsy Wanderings for the sun (1")
Paper Doll Dress up for the grass layers
