Lori's Garden Birthday

I don't generally work on cards for upcoming events in advance....because I'm a procrastinator I tend to make birthday cards pretty much at the last minute because I always want to spend time on other things.  Well, this time, as I was in my craft room and didn't already have a project in mind, I decided to go ahead and make a birthday card for my friend whose birthday is on 9/8.

For this card, I used the Cricut Imagine Lori's Garden cartridge.  I cut a lavender piece of 8 1/2 x 11" card stock in half and then folded the cut piece in half for a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" card.  I then used Lori's Garden to cut the background papers and the bird, branches, and Happy Birthday sentiment.  The 2 background cuts are from the imagine stock imagines and I filled them with paper patterns from Lori's Garden.  Unfortunately, I didn't write down the cut sizes but I'm pretty sure they were as follows:  Background Layer 1 - 3.5", Background Layer 2 - 3.2", Bird - 3", Flower branch - 3", Happy Birthday sentiment - 1.5".

I cut the bird in layers and then used my zig adhesive to adhere all of the layers.  I also cut out an extra flower branch and placed it so it appears to be part of the same cut.  I used pop-dots to adhere the final image and sentiment to the background cuts.

I'm really pleased with how the card turned out.  I think it looks very elegant and can't wait to give it to my friend on her birthday.

Thanks for stopping by....I hope you have a crafty day.....
