Tri-Fold Birthday Card



Today I'm sharing a card I made with my Gypsy and Cricut Expression in the style of the cards on the "Just a Note" Cricut cartridge that is included in the E2. To make this without an E2, I welded together some rectangles and shapes that I wanted to include. "Happy Birthday" is from the Cricut Classic Font cartridge. I welded the shadow to my card base and cut it again as a shadow and a regular cut.


My cupcake is from Birthday Bash. Again, I welded it to the card base and then also cut it with all of its layers. Before adhering it down, I added the striped rectangle.



Finally, the center rounded part of my card is actually a liner from a Wild Card envelope. I adjusted the width and height to make it just the right size. I added the star paper, along with some plain cardstock for my message.

Recipe:

Core'dinations Cardstock
My Mind's Eye "Lime Twist: Fly a Kite" Patterned Paper
Cuttlebug "Divine Swirls" & "Distressed Stripes" Embossing Folders
Versa Magic Jumbo Java Chalk Ink
Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen
