Birthday Cards

Demi had another birthday party to attend for siblings in her Pre-K class recently. And since my time has been at such a premium lately I didn't make their gifts. (GASP!) I know, I know . . . I'm slacking. However, I did make their cards (am I forgiven?)!

I would love to claim that these are original ideas of mine, but they aren't. I scraplifted (or perhaps cardlifted is the appropriate term) these two cuties from the Circut messageboard some time ago. Unfortunately I didn't make note of the creator's names to give them credit where credit is due, sorry! I made several changes to each card based on the supplies I had on hand.

The first card is for a little boy -- hence the frog theme! I cut the scalloped circle and the balloons using the George & Basic Shapes cartridge and my Cricut. The frog and the text are computer generated. Several of the balloons are pop-dotted to give it some dimension and the balloon strings are attached to the balloon and then to the froggy's outstretched hands (I used white sewing thread). I also used pop-dots on the scalloped circle.

The next card is for a girl -- and she is a girly-girl! The scalloped background for the cupcake was cut using the George & Basic Shapes cartridge and the Cricut Design Studio. The cupcake is from the Doodlecharms cartridge. I used ribbon and adhesive backed rhinestones to give this card some dimension. Had to have some bling for this girly-girl! The text is computer generated.
