Quick Birthday Card

Hi folks!

Today I'm being featured on Exploring Cricut.  Although it's Christmas-time, I wanted to shift the focus to a quick birthday card I made.  For this, I used the Doodlecharms cartridge and the Dots, Stripes DCWV stack for the background and second layer of the hat.


I used a 4.25x5.5" card for the base.  The base layer was cut at 4"x5.25".  The hat was cut at 4.5" to leave enough room to show the background paper.  I took pop dots and adhered them to the 2nd layer of the hat to give it some dimension.


To finish the card up, I took a button, and put some twine through it and made a bow.  I thought this looked so cute!  I used a pop dot to give that some dimension too.  I hope you like it!  I'll be back again with some more Christmas-themed cards soon.  :D



Craft on,
Ian
