I wish I could take credit for the card design, but I flat-out stole it from this card. I created my own version using the Flower Market Cricut Cartridge (banner - which normally reads "Happy Place" but I altered to suit my needs). I also used some free shapes and a font from Design Space. Here's the file if you want to recreate it. The extra circle in the file is for two reasons: 1) to cut vellum if you want to recreate this exact card, and 2) so you can copy and paste it to create your own numbers.
Here's the supply list with links included for your shopping convenience:
- Flower Market Cricut Cartridge
- May SOM: To My Bestie ("Birthday" and "Celebrate" stamps)
- Timeless Textures (blue splatter)
- True Love paper (blue circle)
- Into the Wild paper (green plaid)
- Goldrush Cardstock (stars and back of banner)
- White Daisy Cardstock (banner overlay)
- Vellum paper (behind 60 to dull intensity of the background stamping)
- New England Ivy ink
- Sapphire ink
- Round Sponge
- Micro-tip Scissors (to trim edges of circle and large star)
- Dual Tip Permanent Glue Pen
I love that our cardstock is two-toned. It allowed me to cut the two nested stars at the same time. And, as I told you in this post, I'm crazy about the Timeless Textures stamp set so I add random splatters in a controlled way. Yes, I might have a bit of an OCD thing going on over here.
The moving company shows up tomorrow to do a walk-through to determine how much it will take to get us out of here. I always love the reactions I get to my craft cabinet. They are never neutral. Either the guy is impressed by the amount of work it took to create a customized cabinet or (most of the time) appalled that they have to take it down piece by piece then reassemble it on the other end. I do try to have it clean so it's a little less intimidating. Right now it looks like I've been on a crafting binge...which I have. Better clean-up!
Until next time,
