Feels like I'm getting my groove back :)
One of our close friend's birthday is this weekend, so I decided to make him a birthday card using one of my new Bugaboo stamps!
Both the background papers were from a freebie pack over at Leaving a Legacy. I love finding digital paper sets because then the papers already coordinate and I don't have to try and do the matching myself :) I thought these papers could work well for a male birthday card.
The pig image is cut out at about 3 inches, and I used my cricut to cut out the frame...I can't remember where I downloaded that frame from...it was awhile ago before I really started making sure I labeled everything I got from other sites...
The banner is cut from the Cricut Birthday Bash cartridge. It had a birdie on one corner that I trimmed off. Then I layered on some yellow flags and added some cord and bows across the top as well as criss-crossed under the image.
I printed off the birthday swirl sentiment which is just from about.com and cut it out with my Lacy Labels cartridge (when don't I use this cartridge? :) ) with a yellow frame. Went back through and added some white dot details to finish it off!
I think it turned out really cute. The darker colors in the background didn't print off very crisp and clear...I don't exactly have high quality cardstock to print on or a fancy printer for that sort of stuff :) But it still looks good :)
