Meagan's Birthday Card

This is quite a unique card.  Shelby liked the rainbow page that I had made in Julianne's book and wanted me to use it again for Meagan's card.  Then she wanted me to incorporate a dashund dog.  So here is what came of it.  It is a large card.  I took a light blue 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of paper and folded it at 5 1/2".

The rainbow, flowers and butterfly on the front are all from Create A Critter.  The rainbow was cut at 5".  The flowers at 2" and the butterfly at 1 1/2".  The "18" I put on the heart is from the Quarter Note cartridge cut at 1 1/4".  I ran the rainbow through the Xyron and sprinkled it with Stampin' Up Dazzling Diamonds.  The grass was made with my Martha Stewart scissors.  I put some Glossy Accents on the butterfly's body to give it some strength and put it on a Action Wobble.
The "celebrate" on the inside is from the Birthday Bash cartridge as well as the gift box with "its your birthday" and the handstand dog.  The hula hoop dog is from the Paisley cartridge.
And all that added up to a unique card and Shelby really liked it.

Thanks for coming by my blog,

  1. Is that doggie hoola hoopoing? Junnie can't hoola hoop. I'm jealous.

  2. So just curious, are the dog graphics stickers, or did you make them with the cricut? Just seems like it would be a lot of layers to make with the cricut b/c it's so many different colors. From what I've seen Clare do, I know that is theoretically possible, albeit difficult...

  3. Billy,
    Everything on this card is made using Cricut. The layers werent bad because the design wasn't too small. The Tweezerbees really help with small pieces.
