Happy, Happy Birthday (and Good-bye)

This is my last post for Stampin' Buds as a design team member.  I can't believe how fast the time has flown.  I hope I've provided plenty of inspiration!  This week, I wanted to feature the Picture My Life feature of the Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge as they do so much more than scrapbooking. 

A few weeks back, I needed a couple of birthday cards in a hurry.  Out came the Cricut, and two cards were done in no time.  Here's a feminine card:

Then, I flipped my paper over and cut another one for this more masculine one:

I added a few of the adhesive stickers from the Confetti Wishes Compliments to dress things up.  To add dimension, I placed the gold sequins both on top and under the cut-out "HAPPY".  On the first card, I also tied a small knot of Thistle ribbon around the outside edge and inside of the "H".  The banners were cut with my paper trimmer then fish-tailed using scissors.  For the second card, I attached the Topiary Washi Tape before cutting the fish-tail.  (Please note, I couldn't find the link for Topiary Washi, so the shopping link below goes to Topiary Chevron Ribbon instead.)

Everything else is pretty self-explanatory I think, but let me know if you need clarification in a comment below and come back to see the answer.

So quick!  So cute!  So sad to say good-bye to Stampin' Buds, but I'll still have lots of inspiration here (and Shannon will certainly still have inspiration over on her blog).  Therefore, I will leave you with my customary closing...

Until next time,


  1. This is ADORABLE!!!! Who would've thunk! And that first one with the cupcake as the "A"...SUPER LOVE!

  2. Both cards are wonderful, Becca! I love your use of washi on the second one (scribbling a note to self!) Hugs!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. You bless me!
