Birds on Banner Birthday Card

My daughter turns 40 in November.  Do you know how old that makes me feel?  LOL!  I've decided to make and mail 40 birthday cards to her.  Here is card #1.

Cricut Cartridge:  Birthday Bash
Designer Paper:  My Mind's Eye "Sky's the Limit" 6"x6" pad.
Punch:  Martha Stewart border punch
Other:  Washi Tape


A2 sized card = 5.5" x 4.25"
Cricut Birthday Bash

 
Card Recipe:
  • Mat 1 (polka dot) = 5.25" x 4".
  • Border = 1.5" x 5.25".  Border punch from Martha Stewart.  Washi tape added across the bottom of border.
 
  • Birds and Banner = cut at 3" from Cricut Birthday Bash cartridge; [Surprise] found on page 48 of the folder.  Image is mounted with foam tape.  *Note:  The eyes layer were too small when cut to be used.  Eyes were created using black pen.
