1st Birthday card
Finally had some time to create over the weekend. Between the ceiling fan and window it was tolerable to sit and be crafty. On Saturday I went to a crop with a couple of friends and worked on a friends Wedding Album. Mind you said friend now has a one year old baby. None the less here wedding album is coming along. I need to get her permission before I post any of my scrap pages.
On Sunday I was able to create a 1st Birthday card for my nephew Ethan. Nothing like the last minute the party was in a matter of hours. Anyway I used the Celebrations Cricut cart and cut the items at 4 inches which in hind sight I caution you to cut at maybe 2.5 or 3 inches as the 4 inch cut caused my card to be 7.5 by 5.75 and as such not a standard size A2 card. I used pop dots and some ribbon I had kicking around. I also caution you that when buying pop dot to just go with the bigger ones they are easier to peel the backing off.
Because of the odd size of the card and the time crunch. I simply made a "folder" for it and used the blue ribbon to "wrap" it.
