Birthday Card with Cricut Wild Card 2


I finally found the Cricut Wild Card 2 cartridge at Michael's a couple of weeks ago.  It was on sale, so I could not resist it!  This is the first card I've made with it, and it's surprisingly easy to use!  I sized everything at 5 1/2", including the envelope, making it perfect to send through the mail.  The layers are easy to work with.  To get the crackled look on my yellow card base, I stamped the new Papertrey Ink Crackled Mini Stamp Set with Harvest Gold ink onto Harvest Gold cardstock.


I used My Creative Time's Teeny Tags die and stamp for my sentiment, tied with a little bow using 0.05  mm Hemp Twine from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.  You can see beneath the tag that I embossed my "frosting" with the Cuttlebug Divine Swirls embossing folder.


I love the coordinating envelope!  There was even a cupcake layer!  I cut this out of thin patterned paper from one of the DCWV paper stacks.  Those huge stacks you can buy at Michael's have paper the perfect weight for envelopes.  Then I'll just use an address label so that I can write the address on the front.

Turned out super cute. I love Wild Card 2 for a fast card. The one thing that drives me crazy is that a lot of them won't stand on their own. Lee-Ann :)
