BIRTHDAY CARD

Card #6

Good morning!  I hope you all have a FUN weekend!

Here is a card I made yesterday for a friend's daughter.
The card is 6" x 8" - larger than I usually use for cards.
I wanted to use this lady carrying a tray on the 
Cricut Lite BLOCK PARTY cartridge,
 and when I cut her originally at 5", man, the little pieces were itty bitty.  So I chucked that size and cut her again this time at 7".  Much better.

The cupcake tray is from BIRTHDAY BASH
on page 55 cut @ 2 1/2".

Card base and inside papers from My Mind's Eye, Laundry Line.
All solid papers from Recollections assorted packs.
Tag on front was from stash - I have no idea where it came from.
Rhinestones and Ribbon from Joann's.
"L" inside (for Lauren) from stash.


I challenged myself at the beginning of the year to make more projects other than cards.  I love making cards, but I got in a "card crafting rut".
So now my problem is my card stash is almost non-existent. LOL  Back to making cards for a while to build up my stash.  :)

So adorable. I love the inside of the card! I have this cart too and have made 3" dad and mom-you're right the parts are teeny

Love this card. I am going to scrap-lift your design for the inside. Cute, cute, cute. Love the initial in the lower right corner.
Thanks for sharing Janis!
Blessings!
