A "Berry" Sweet Card

Our niece, Layla, celebrated her fourth birthday last week and she is in love with Strawberry Shortcake.  And since Cricut hasn't come out with a cartridge with Strawberry Shortcake and all her pals, I did the next best thing . . . a strawberry card with lots of bling!

I used the Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge for this "berry" sweet card.  Here's the recipe:

Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge - using the card feature, I cut the strawberry so that when it is folded it measures 4 1/4" wide by 5" high.  I cut the base out of a scrap of Bazzill's Pinkini card stock.  The next layer of the card is black card stock.  The strawberry and leaves are also cut from scraps. I used hot pink and pale pink adhesive-backed rhinestones.

Create-A-Critter cartridge - Happy Birthday cut at 3 1/4" wide, also from scrap card stock.  Little bit of pen doodling and a hand written greeting complete this card.
