A Trio of Cricut Birthday Bash Cards

I have a trio of cards to share with you that I made using the Cricut Birthday Bash cartridge.  I have three nieces, and their birthdays all fall at the end of February.  This cartridge was perfect for creating quick and easy cards for them.  The critters are absolutely adorable, and I did not even need to pull out my stamps, because the phrase feature has several birthday sentiments available.

Here are the cards...

These were really simple to make - so easy, in fact, that I'm going to include quick directions here!

First of all, here is what you will need to make all three:

  • Cricut Birthday Bash Cartridge
  • Patterned Paper - I used DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby Girl stack
  • Card Stock Scraps
  • White 5x7 Cards (or white card stock to make your own)
  • Adhesives - I used a Zig 2 Way Glue Pen with fine tip for the smaller paper piecing and my pink ATG for larger pieces.  I also used 3D foam adhesive squares to adhere the critters to their cards.
  • Paper Trimmer
  • Border Punch - I used the Fiskars Threading Water border punch.


"Celebrate" Card

Of all three, I think this one is my favorite!  Paper mice are so much cuter than their furry counterparts, aren't they?  Anyway, here are the cuts that I made using the Birthday Bash cartridge...

5.25" decorative circle: This was cut from white card stock using the Card/Tag feature: "<shift>" and "<Gifts>".

3.75" circle: This was cut from pink patterned paper using the Card/Tag feature: "<shift>" and "<Elephant>".

Mouse and Layers:  These were cut at 3" using the "<Mouse1>" and related shift/layering keys.

Celebrate:  Cut from black card stock at 3.5" using the Phrase feature: "<shift>" and "<Beaver>".


"It's Your Birthday" Card

When I showed this completed card to my 13-year old son, he responded, "Nice slug, mom!".  Just for the record, this little bug is a snail and not a slug (got that, Jacob?), and all the cuts on this card were made using the Birthday Bash cartridge.

4" decorative square frame:  This was cut from white card stock using the "<Snail>" Card/Tag feature.  It's actually meant to be a card by itself, but I cut it in half so that I could use it as a frame.

4" black square: This was cut from black card stock using the Card/Tag feature: "<shift>" and "<Snail>".

3.75" pink square:  This was cut from pink patterned paper using the Card/Tag feature: "<shift>" and "<Snail>".

Snail and Layers:  These were cut at 2.25" using the "<Snail>" and related shift/layering keys.

It's Your Birthday: Cut from black card stock at 2.5" using the Phrase feature: "<shift>" and "<Octopus>".


"Birthday Wishes" Card

This little birdie is just so tweet!  The rectangle base he sits on is 3.75" x 5.75".  The black base is slightly bigger, and I used my border punch to embellish the top and bottom.  Here is the information for the rest of the cuts:

Bird and Layers: These were cut at 2.75" using the "<Bird2>" and related shift/layering keys.

Birthday Wishes:  Cut from black card stock at 2.5" using the Phrase feature: "<shift>" and "<Cake>".
