Creative Cards Happy Birthday Card

Welcome to another project at Cricut Fanatics!  Diane here from the blog http://happyscrapperdiane.blogspot.com with a quick card project. I created a card using the new Creative Cards cartridge. I had to wait till I could put it in my Gypsy to use it. I customized  the card in Gypsy as well to be the size I needed.
I size the card base in the Gypsy at 10 x 7 inches.  This is the 9th card on the brochure instuctions.
I folded the card at the marks.  I did not add the layer piece so that I could use the white front.
I cut the flowers for the outside at 4.84 x 5.00 inches and the leaves at 5.21 x 5.00.  The flower for the inside is cut at 2.34 x 2.41 and the leaves at 2.51 x 2.41.  I put the flower on the front together with fabric plaid brad and used a jewel on the inside flower.
The black strip was cut at 7 inches to fit the front of the card and is one inch wide. I attached the flower
The banner on the card with the stamped Happy Birthday is from the 10th card and I cut them at 3.5 and 4 inches.  I am not sure what the stamp is, but had it in my stash. 
I added a strip on the bottom of the card to match the front and stamped a verse from some Close to My Heart stamps. The pattern paper was something in my stash and not sure what it is. The card stock is Michaels.


  1. Really cute card. This cart is another on my wish list!

  2. Love this card! That polka dot paper is fantastic.

  3. Very pretty card -- love the black & red against the white -- it's very striking!!

  4. Your card is gorgeous! TFS.
    I have this cart and have yet to open or use it.
    I designed and cut a lot of things in the CCR when it was a freebie.
    It is time for me to open it and make some more fun stuff.

  5. That card is gorgeous. Really elevates the card!!!!

  6. Love this card, especially the fabric brad flower center.

  8. What a beautiful card. Totally scraplifting this!!!!

  9. Diane, this card is simply beautiful. Love the band and the flower just pops on it. TFS! :-)

  10. What a great card! I need to get this cartridge because I make about 40 cards a month, and sometimes coming up with something totally new is harder than it should be. You did a great job using what the cut gave you and adding your own touches!
