HAPPY Birthday

Happy Monday!  I thought I'd share a little birthday card I made for my brother over the weekend with the help of my Cricut Explore and some My Creative Time goodies.  I started with an A2 kraft card base and then cut the largest of the MCT Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies out of white cardstock.  I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Peacock Feathers to ink up the background and to add the dots with the Simon Says Stamp Tiny Dots Stencil.  The little stars I popped up on the background were made with MCT's All Around Holidays dies.

Here's where my Cricut Explore came in.  I spelled out "HAPPY" using a font from the Boys Will Be Boys cartridge and welded it to a rectangle.  After cutting it out, I added a lime green element that I made by using the Stitched Rectangular Die again, but this time trimming it with one of the MCT Fun Stitched Edges dies.  I also stamped the birthday sentiment from MCT's Gift Card Sentiments.  That larger star is from MCT's 3 Star Stitched Dies.  Once of all this was adhered together, I adhered it to the card with some dimensional adhesive!

Products used on this card:
