I made this for a friend at work, she is the sort of person that likes Per Una and cupcakes. She always looks so pretty and so I thought this was the card for her.

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Pink Velum 2 small sheets
  • pink floral paper
  • red card
  • pink paper
  • Hppy Birthday Die
  • Big Shot

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Step 2: I cut two large butterflies from the pink velum using the Cricut Picturesque Cartridge. I set my machine to 2 inches. I bent the wings up and stuck one to the card and then stuck the other on top slightly offset.
Step 1 stick pink backing paper on card. Then cut the floral paper. I cut 3 of the Geometric shapes 'j' from the Cricut Font and Basic Shapes cartridge that came free with my mini-cricut. I cut the shape 6 inches long by 2 inches wide. Then stuck them on the card equal distances apart.
Step 3: I cut two smaller butterflies from the pink velum. I cut them both at 1 inch. The first I cut on basic, which gave all the detail, the second I cut on shadow, which gave the solid shape. I bend the wing up on both. I stuck the solid shaped butterfly onto the card and then slightly offset stuck on the detail butterfly.
Step 4: The smallest butterfly on the bottom of the card. I cut the two butterflies out of pink velum on 0.75 inches. The first I cut on basic which gave the detail of the butterfly, the second I cut on shadow which gave the solid shape. Again I bent the wings up, stuck the solid butterfly on the card and then on top slightly off set I stuck the detailed butterfly.
Step 5; With a Die I cut the Happy Birthday out of red card with my Big Shot. I stuck the Happy Birthday in the middle pane. If I hadn't got the Big Shot and the Happy Birthday die I would have used the letters on Cricut Room Basics which came free with my mini-cricut, but as yet, as I am relatively new to Cricut, I haven't become proficient in writing words with the machine.
