I wanted to share something different today. Today I'm going to share the birthday card I made for my son's 18th birthday. I can't take credit for the design ~ it's something I found on Pinterest. If you want to see the original idea, you can see it HERE; it came from JulieH on the Cricut message board.
The card is a 6x6 square with the fold at the top. The yellow mat is cut using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge exclusively from Close to my Heart at 5.87" wide. The "happy birthday" mat is cut using the same cartridge but at 5.75" wide.
The "18" is cut from the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge and cut again using the shadow feature at 5.5" tall. "Jonathan" was cut from the font on the Wild Card Cricut cartridge and welded using my Gypsy. I played with the size until I was happy with the way it lay over the 18; I would make it a different size if using a different length name. As JulieH explained in her original directions, I cut Jonathan three times, ran them through my Xyron, and attached them together to make it thicker.
On the inside, I cut a mat from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge at 5.75" wide. The sentiment is cut at 5.5" wide from the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge.
Here are the supplies I used:
