A Girlie 40th Birthday Card made for a special friend.

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • card stock
  • designer paper
  • flowers
  • lace
  • glitter glue
  • double sided tape

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Cut 40 using Base Camp @ 2" or any of the other wonderful Cricut Font Cartridges.
I cut 10 of each letter to build height to give it a more dimensional look, keeping the main focus.
A great way to keep the letters aligned during the glueing stage, I used a couple of straight pins.
Easel Card. Using Story Book cut the card shape.
Place the fold over the edge line so it doesn't cut all the way through
Cut a 12" x 12" piece of card stock in half giving you a 12" x 6" piece of cardstock.
Score and fold in half, this gives you a 6" x 6" card.
Then score just one side of the card down the middle, 3" in a mountain fold.
Cut another piece of cardstock 6" x 6". Embellish as you wish.
I stitched mine on the sewing machine, before attaching to the backing cardstock.
Then tape to the front of the card using double sided tape only on the lower half of the mountain fold.
This gives the card the appearance of an easel card.

Hope you enjoy making this as much as I did.
