Birthday Card From Artiste

Good afternoon crafty friends,

I just wanted to share a card I made for my niece. She is a truly sweet girl. I wish I was closer to her. She lives in Michigan and I live in Florida. But by the grace of God, the Lord created an irrevocable bond and I stand on the promise that she will know how much “this side of the family” loves her.

I created this card using the Cricut Artiste Cartridge Bundle. The only thing that didn’t come from the Artiste Cartridge was the Scalloped Frame. I could have easily picked one of the MANY pretty frames they have on the cartridge, but it just so happened that I had this one already cut from my Pazzles inspiration....SOOOO, waste not, want not. I decided to use it. Here’s my recipe:

CTMH Supplies
Bear: Cricut Artiste Cuts
Cupcake: Cricut Artiste Cuts and coordinating Stamp Set
Birthday Sentiment: Cricut Artiste Coordinating Stamp Set
Crown: Cricut Artiste Cut

Designer Paper: Dotty For You Pack
Inks: Brown Bag, Pear, Gypsy and Blush

Other Supplies:
White Cardstock
for the base of the card and the scalloped frame
Dew Drops: Island Breeze
I also used the following Copics to “Color” the cupcake
Y11, Y13, Y15
V20, V25, R32
Stickles: Star Dust
Dry Decorator Chalks, Fine Tip Black Pen and White Signo Pen for Bear’s Facial Features.
