5 Year Old Birthday Card


My nephew is about to turn 5, so I decided to make a card for him that would work for this week's Cricut Circle challenge. We had to make a card that was not a rectangle or square shape, included a number, and had some bling. This adorable shark holding the number 5 from Birthday Bash was perfect! I cut him at 5.12" and adhered him to an oval card base from Smiley Cards, cut at 3.88" (it's turned sideways). The end result is perfect for an A2 size envelope. To give him his bling, I added Stickles to his party hat.

Recipe:

DCWV Flower Shower Spring Stack Patterned Paper
Core'dinations Cardstock
Michael's Googly Eyes
Lime Green Stickles
Papertrey Ink "Birthday Bash Sentiments" Stamp Set and Enchanted Evening Ink
Color Box Cat's Eye Ink
Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen
